Athens Network

Chimie ParisTech welcomes students in the ATHENS program. Created in 1996, this program regroups 15 high-level European scientific and technological universities and 9 major ParisTech schools, including Chimie ParisTech. Its objective is to promote the exchange of students, teachers and researchers between the major European university centers.

For one week in November, the school and its partners offer the opportunity for students to follow courses provided by professors from the academic sector and experts from the industrial world in the fields of medicine and cosmetics.
