Master students from both institutions can now benefit from the core competences of the partners, gain valuable experience abroad and prepare for a later career in international research by exchanging ideas with a European neighbour.
The Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (IPGP) has 14 research departments and six observatories and is generally dedicated to basic research. One of the tasks of the IPGP is to monitor active volcanoes on French territory. Great personalities such as Pierre and Marie Curie and Albert Tarantola are closely associated with the IPGP.
Founded in 1921 (IPGP), it is a so-called Grand établissement, which belongs to the Université Paris Diderot and to the Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS) under the auspices of the state. It is currently the second largest CNRS research unit in France.
