Jean-Philippe Denis de XerfiCanal interviewe Sylvie Retailleau

When she was interviewed by Jean-Philippe Denis on Xerfi Canal, Sylvie Retailleau – the Université Paris-Saclay President – discussed goals and key priorities in the creation of Université Paris-Saclay, from its foundation to the new university planned in January 2020.

Sylvie Retailleau presented the key milestones in the creation of Université Paris-Saclay. She spoke of the often-quoted idea that “big is beautiful” in relation to Université Paris-Saclay but added that “the project’s keystone is the transformation of higher education and research in France.” Decompartmentalization between universities and grandes écoles is one the drivers of the Université Paris-Saclay project, with the 14 partners working together to place students, research and community at the heart of the organization.
