Campus Condorcet Paris Aubervilliers
As one of the founding institutions, INED is actively involved in the development of Campus Condorcet Paris-Aubervilliers, the future human and social science research hub now under construction at the gates of the French capital.
The Campus Condorcet, launched by the French state in 2008, will be major European and international research and training hub in four broad areas: the historical sciences, textual sciences, territorial sciences, and social sciences. It will receive a total of 18,000 teacher-researchers, undergraduate, graduate and PhD students, and administrative staff on two sites totaling nearly 18.3 acres, one in Aubervilliers, just north of Paris, and the other at Porte de la Chapelle in Paris.
INED will move to the Aubervilliers site, alongside the new comprehensive documentation center, a project incubator center, a conference center and accomodation for guest researchers.
