Chairs of Excellence

Over the 2011-2017 period, five senior chairs have been created, sponsored by private partners and local authorities, in the fields of engineering, management and cultural policy.

With E2S UPPA, this framework has been significantly expanded!

New chair formats have been launched, in addition to the existing format directed at established researchers: junior chairs for young promising researchers and part time international chairs hosting researchers with a very high international visibility have been created. The objective is to increase drastically the scientific power of E2S UPPA, and at the same time, to embed – at the very starting point of the chair – research and education as the scientific team build up around a chair should have also educational responsibilities within the flagship programs of E2S UPPA.

As of the end of 2019, in addition to the five already existing ones, E2S UPPA created six junior chairs, seven senior chairs and six international chairs. Sixteen new faculty members have been hired.

Over 70 doctoral positions and more than 100 one-year post-doctoral fellowships have been, or will be, offered in the coming years within these chairs, covering a wide variety of scientific topics in line with the ambitions and missions of E2S UPPA.

Each project results from the convergence between scientific issues, stakeholders’ needs and above all the interest in the mutualisation of concerns and efforts. Our experience shows that it has been beneficial to everyone.

A description of each chair is provided in the booklet specialy published (2nd edition this year) and available here.
