Talents AcademyCall for applications


The Energy and Environment Solutions initiative (E2S‐UPPA) is a substantial, multi‐year growth plan. Problem‐oriented, inter‐disciplinary and transverse research in Energy and Environment, is pursed while putting the emphasis on either industry relevance or high visibility in leading academic journals. Interests span over all areas of Energy and Environment, including but not limited to optimization of geo‐resources exploration and exploitation, optimization of energy storage, materials for renewable energy, composites for structural lightening, analytical and microbial environmental analysis for diagnostic and remediation, as well as evaluation of organisms adaptation to environmental stresses in evolving or controlled ecosystems, and social issues about energy and environment.



To detect and attract (or keep) at the UPPA the most promising students, a “Talents’ Academy” has been created. Its goal is to let those students benefit from an allowance so that they can focus on studying.

The allowance is of ­6,000€ in Licence 3[1];  8,000€ in Master 1 and 10,000 € in Master 2.

[1] Licence 3 or L3 is the last year of the French undergraduate curriculum. That is the equivalent of the last year of a 3 year one Bachelor. Hence, L2 refers to the second year.


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


Targeted candidates:

- bright students currently enrolled in L2, who intend to apply for an allowance in L3
- bright students currently enrolled in L3, who intend to apply for an allowance in Master 1
- bright students currently enrolled in M1, who intend to apply for an allowance in Master 2

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

Candidates may come from the UPPA or other universities.

One of E2S’ objectives being international attractiveness and visibility, foreign applications are paid particular attention.


*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 Optimisation of Energy Systems



  • For candidates already enrolled at UPPA:

They must meet the person in charge of the training program they are currently attending. This person will give them the relevant information.

  • For candidates from French universities or from abroad:

They must send

- a cover letter particularly mentioning the courses they are currently attending and the courses they want to apply for,
