Supported by renowned schools and research institutes, Chimie ParisTech - PSL, ESPCI Paris - PSL, Ecole Normale Supérieure - PSL, Institut Curie, Collège de France, MINES ParisTech - PSL, IBPC, the new Integrative Chemistry & Innovation (ICI) track explores advanced topics in chemistry in an up-to-date, transversal and transdisciplinary manner.

This master's degree is in the process of being accredited by the MESRI and is part of the Graduate Program in ChemistryChimie1

Applicants must hold a Bachelor degree or equivalent in Chemistry, or any science at its interface.

A C1 level in English is highly recommended since all courses are taught in English.
