Savanturiers - École de la recherche

Playing on French words savant, “knowledgeable,” and aventuriers, “adventurers,” the Savanturiers, or the “knowledge explorers”, is a programme developed by the CRI that designs education-through-research projects in preschool through high school classes. The purpose of these projects is to help participants engage with the world in the thoughtful and meticulous way scientific researchers do. They learn about research methods and scientific ethics through serious, challenging projects that develop critical thinking, cooperation and an appetite for exploring the unknown.

The programme accomplishes three things:

  • Designs education-through-research projects specific to each classroom with scientific mentors assigned to support each project.
  • Offers professional development for teachers.
  • Carries out research and development in education.

  • +30 000 pupils involved in education through research projects
  • +30 000 teachers trained to education through research model
  • +400 mentors researchers
  • +600 free online resources
  • 9 MOOCs created
  • 30 young researchers’ conferences organized

Frontiers of Life Sciences Bachelor's

The Frontiers of Life Sciences Bachelor’s degree (FdV Licence) is aimed at students who are passionate about science in general, but specifically drawn to the life sciences, the world of research and the role of science in society.

The programme is grounded in a common core of mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer science and biology. This way, students encounter the life sciences in all their facets, yet these core domains are expanded on through complementary courses covering philosophy, the history of science, teaching, ethics, entrepreneurship and engineering, with interdisciplinary modules for developing cross-disciplinary skills.

In addition, through elective courses and internships, students can customise their education to align it with what they wish to accomplish after graduation. At the end of each semester, students participate in interdisciplinary-project weeks in which they can apply the knowledge and skills acquired in the classroom to develop practical solutions that further the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

AIRE Master's

The AIRE Master’s degree is a 2-year Université de Paris programme hosted by the CRI. With a strong focus on interdisciplinary and research-based projects, the programme is geared towards researchers and entrepreneurs in the life, learning and digital sciences. The curriculum includes innovative courses and learning-by-doing training through internships in different labs, startups and other companies. Every year, the 100-plus students we welcome in the AIRE Master’s are people who think and act critically about the world’s most pressing problems and want to work towards attaining the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Drawing on open-science approaches, collaborative interdisciplinary projects and a challenge-based approach to learning, the many renowned researchers, teachers and mentors involved in teaching the programme are what make it truly exceptional. Students rapidly develop new skills in this potent, stimulating environment where creators, entrepreneurs and researchers come together to problem solve. Students likewise are encouraged to get involved in the collaborative projects pursued in our student clubs and labs. All three tracks in the programme—life, learning and digital sciences—offer high-level training in critical thinking, design and communication and help develop soft skills that will allow students to map their own research and career paths.

We promote diversity and gender equality. We are proud of our extensive alumni network of more than 500 students representing 20 nationalities, many of whom have gone on to become acclaimed researchers and entrepreneurs.

FIRE Doctoral School

The Frontiers of Innovation in Research and Education (Frontières de l’Innovation en Recherche et Éducation) or FIRE PhD programme bridges fundamental and applied research at the intersection of life, learning and digital sciences. Hosted by the Université de Paris and co-hosted by PSL Research University, the programme is part of the CRI’s EURIP Graduate School for Interdisciplinary Research (École Universitaire de Recherche Interdisciplinaire de Paris).

In the FIRE PhD programme, students are active participants in their own education. They take part in a culture that fosters cooperation and excellence and empowers students to develop their potential as young researchers. The programme allows labs to host unconventional doctoral theses, participate in an interdisciplinary community and take advantage of the resources that the CRI makes available to students.

The following are necessary conditions for a PhD thesis to be hosted by the FIRE PhD programme:

  • Conduct an original research investigation centred around a question and/or methodology that is novel for the hosting lab
  • Ask a research question that is relevant to an interdisciplinary community
  • Apply an adequate research methodology for the objectives of the study
  • Document and disseminate the research outcome and/or process in a manner appropriate for the research community and the wider public
  • 40% international students
  • 35-40 PhD students per year, 135 in total
  • 255 PhD graduates since 2009

EURIP Graduate School

The EURIP Graduate School for Interdisciplinary Research (École Universitaire de Recherche Interdisciplinaire de Paris) in Paris, or simply the EURIP Graduate School, advances fundamental and applied research in order to drive knowledge forward in the life, learning and digital sciences.

The graduate school aims to train student-researchers to be highly skilled and multi-skilled in order to act as innovators and change makers tackling the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals pertaining to health and education. Students graduate with both practical knowledge and the transdisciplinary skills of communication, ethics, critical thinking, creativity and entrepreneurship that are so vital in today’s world.

The AIRE Master’s and the FIRE PhD programmes (see above for details) compose the EURIP Graduate School. Both programmes are renowned for their academic excellence and unrivalled focus on interdisciplinarity, collaboration, student empowerment and educational innovation.

The EURIP’s student-centred approach to learning offers thorough mastery of state-of-the-art scientific research methods while exposing students to:

  • Action-based research approaches in design and citizen and participatory sciences
  • Entrepreneurship
  • The interplay between science and society
  • Collaborative and hands-on learning through research

University Degrees

We want our programmes to contribute to knowledge development at all stages of life in order to help bring about a lifelong-learning society. On offer at the CRI are several lifelong-learning certified programmes for developing or updating skills in the areas of education, training, entrepreneurship and scientific mediation. These programmes are available to anyone and everyone, be they professionals, university students or people transitioning in their careers. If you’re motivated by research, innovation and collaboration in the learning process within an interdisciplinary framework, then this is the place for you. Class sizes are small to facilitate group exchange. Teachers hail from academia and research as well as the professional world in both the public and private sectors. We strive to adapt classes to the individual skills and education levels of participants in order to create a completely unique learning experience.

Our DU certification programmes are offered in French only.

e-Learning

The CRI produces Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) and Massive Open Online Documentaries (MOOD) featuring innovative learning content in the domains of education, innovation and the life sciences.

Our video production studio makes it possible for learners to immerse themselves in this interactive format that facilitates knowledge building. Participants can look forward to our upcoming documentary series "Learning Society.” The design, direction and multimedia production of these modules are as much based in innovation as their content discussing new approaches to education. Furthermore, given the expertise of our team in our new multimedia studio, we now have the capability to teach podcast production—yet another way the CRI offers a state-of-the-art, some say "alternative," education.
