A strategy to meet the major challenges of our time

To increase its visibility and capitalise on PSL as an accelerator of its ambitions, Mines Paris – PSL has updated its strategic plan for 2022, which was adopted in 2017. This update supports students’ ever-growing quest for meaning, while fully integrating the School into its ecosystem.
Affirmer une stratégie pour répondre aux grands défis de notre temps

Based on an open and participative methodology that brought together 350 participants (staff, students, alumni, partners) around 13 workstreams and 4 co-design workshops, led by project leaders – Research Professors, Heads of Research Centres or members of the Executive Committee – this project enabled the plan to be restructured around 5 strategic goals:
