The Institut Pascal: a scientific hub, dedicated to research, creation, the exchange of knowledge and the development of new ideas.

The Institut Pascal aims to shape the identity and influence of the Paris-Saclay University, both regionally and internationally, as a place of intellectual excitement. The facilities, for which construction will be completed by spring 2019, will allow numerous researchers from all over the world to unite, establishing new collaborations, exploring both new and common ideas and techniques while working on site.
Where to find us : Bâtiment Pascal, 530 rue André Rivière, 91400 Orsay Cedex.
