Collège d'études mondiales
The activities of the College d'études mondiales came to an end in December 2020.

The College of Global Studies (CEM) aims to analyse the major transformations of our contemporary world with renewed intellectual tools and to reformulate the main issues currently addressed by the humanities and social sciences.

The CEM offers an innovative research environment, with endowed chairs, scientific project incubator and dedicated areas for collaboration between researchers of different nationalities and institutional backgrounds.

The College offers a range of research facilities and support for visiting researchers and innovative research projects. Each scheme has a defined timeframe.

  • Research Chair: awarded for a period of 4 years, a Chair is entrusted to an internationally renowned researcher, surrounded by guest researchers, in order to develop a little-known topic.
  • Research Initiative: awarded for a period of 2 years, an initiative encourages the incubation of a research project led by a researcher.
  • Seminars: each year, the College organises, co-organises, hosts or supports several seminars proposed by its guest researchers.

Every year, the College welcomes researchers from around the world and organizes nearly 200 scientific events.

  • 17 Research Chairs
  • 4 Research Initiatives
  • 200 Scientific events (12 seminars, 8 international conferences and 10 conferences in partnership with the Gulbenkian Foundation per year)
  • 35 Researchers invited per year
