For its 18th edition, the Academic Ranking of World Universities, better known as the Shanghai ranking list, places a French university in the top 15 for the first time. It is the University of Paris-Saclay, which takes 14th place for its first appearance in the ranking!
This is excellent news for Servier which, with the Servier Paris-Saclay Research Institute, will consolidate the research activities of its four French sites within this unique innovation cluster by 2022*.
The Servier Paris-Saclay Research Institute represents a major step for the Servier Group in achieving more open, dynamic, and productive research that serves patients. In time, 600 Servier researchers will be working together in a single location dedicated to interdisciplinary innovation in the Paris-Saclay cluster.
Founded at the end of 2019, the Paris-Saclay experimental establishment combines four major schools (AgroParisTech, CentraleSupélec, Ecole normale supérieure Paris-Saclay, Institut d’optique graduate school) and seven research laboratories (CEA, CNRS, IHES, Inria, Inserm, Onéra) with the former University of Paris-Sud. Counting 48,000 students and 9,000 professors and teachers/researchers, the University of Paris-Saclay is a driving force for the development of its region and is open to the world with an international label of excellence.
