The Graduate School of Sustainability and Transitions has a broad network of partnerships created by different Master’s programs, associated research labs, and our research faculty in their projects.


For instance, the three “Erasmus Mundus EPOG+” Master’s courses have established over 40 partnerships with globally recognised higher education institutions and non-academic entities across all continents.

Université Paris Cité’s Master’s program in “Risks and the Environment, Risk and Crisis Engineering” has developed approximately forty partnerships with institutions, industrial firms, educational and research entities in fields like public health, environmental safety, energy, and techno-scientific activities and products. This collaboration involves a diverse range of professionals, including engineers, economists, geographers, sociologists, anthropologists, political scientists, and managers.

The “EMTE” Master’s program maintains a network of partnerships with various land managers, associations, and universities both in France (PNR, MAB, Paris City Council) and internationally (Morocco, Japan). These partnerships, whether academic or non-academic, enhance the program’s content, ensure its relevance, and create professional opportunities for graduates.

By uniquely integrating these diverse aspects, the Graduate School of Sustainability and Transitions meets the increasing demand from students and both public and private organizations seeking to address significant societal challenges related to ecological issues. Beyond academic research, graduates will naturally find opportunities in companies, consulting firms, research organizations, local governments, ministries, international organizations, and NGOs (at local, national, or international levels).

Graduates from the Graduate School of Sustainability and Transitions programs will not only be able to theorize about the issues but also adeptly solve practical problems for various stakeholders across different scales. The active participation of high-level international students will contribute to fostering intercultural exchanges and building graduate networks, promoting regional and international mobility. Additionally, the master’s programs linked to work ensure enduring partnerships and sustainable professional prospects.
