Talents Academy - 2021


The Energy and Environment Solutions initiative (E2S UPPA) is a substantial, multi-year growth plan which focuses on problem-oriented, inter-disciplinary and transverse research in Energy and Environment. It also concentrates on both industry partnerships and high visibility in leading academic journals.



To identify, attract or retain the most promising students, a “Talents Academy” has been created. Its goal is to provide talented students with an allowance so that they can focus better on studying.

The allowance amounts to ­6,000€ in Licence 3[1];  8,000 € in Master 1 and Master 2.

 [1] Licence 3 or L3 is the last year of the French undergraduate curriculum, which corresponds to the last year of a 3-year Bachelor, L2 thus referring to the second year.

We seek outstanding candidates excited by the opportunity to shape tomorrow solutions for energy and the environment, with a clear passion, and willing to make a difference for the future.



 Targeted candidates:

  • talented students currently enrolled in L2, who intend to apply for an allowance in L3
  • talented students currently enrolled in L3 who intend to apply for an allowance in Master 1
  • talented students currently enrolled in M1 who intend to apply for an allowance in Master 2.

Targeted courses are all within E2S UPPA’s area of expertise* (or leading to them - for undergraduate programmes).

Candidates may come from the UPPA or from other universities.

One of E2S UPPA’s objectives being international attractiveness and visibility, foreign applications will be examined with great interest.

*Targeted Masters programmes:
Petroleum Engineering; Materials Science and Engineering; Chemistry and Life Sciences; Mathematics and Applications; Computer Science; Sciences and Technology for Agriculture, Food and Environment; Electronics, electric energy, automatism; Geography, Planning, Environment and Development; Public Law; International Master in Civil Engineering; International Master Simulation and Optimization of Energy Systems; Applied Economics ; European and International Business Studies, Sociology, Ecological and Digital Transitions.
