AMU's Schools of Research

The aim of the "Schools of Research" action under the Programme d'Investissements d'Avenir (PIA 3- wave 1) is to strengthen the impact and international attractiveness of a university site's research and training in one or several scientific fields. The aim is to finance the internationally recognized Graduate School model, which brings together master's and doctoral programs as well as one or more high-level research laboratories and research organizations.

Aix-Marseille University is the winner of two EURs in 2017, AMSE and nEURo*AMU, for a duration of 10 years. They are respectively endowed with 16.6M€ and 10 M€ co-financed by the Programme d'Investissements d'Avenir
and the A*Midex foundation.

  • AMSE (Aix-Marseille School of Economics)

Coordinated by Alain Venditti, this project brings together teaching and research around a new scientific project focused on public action in a world in crisis, particularly in the southern Mediterranean countries facing specific challenges and obstacles on the path to development.
AMSE proposes the creation of a Grande Ecole in Economics within Aix-Marseille University by proposing an innovative training program at the master and doctoral levels, which aims to train a new generation of economists, researchers, professors and policy makers able to meet the challenges of a world in crisis.

Alongside Aix-Marseille University, the consortium's partner institutions are the CNRS, EHESS and Ecole Centrale Marseille (ECM).

Coordinated by Anne Kavounoudias, this project aims to structure AMU's strengths and potential in neuroscience, to simplify and professionalize the courses and to increase its international visibility from the 3rd year of the bachelor's degree to the doctoral program in neuroscience.

Alongside Aix-Marseille University, the consortium's partner institutions are CNRS, Inserm, AP-HM, Institut Mines Telecom, VECT-HORUS, Neuroservice Alliance and OZ Biosciences.
