New University of Paris
It’s official: the new University of Paris is born! For the moment, Paris Diderot University still exists, but it will merge with Paris Descartes and the new university on January 1st, 2020; the IPGP will remain a legally separate entity. (Yes, it’s complicated.) We have a new logo that you can view on the university’s twitter account. We also have new statutes that govern the relatively intricate internal structure of the new university. A new website u-paris.fr was announced with great pomp, but it doesn’t work. And most importantly… all the staff got pots and seeds to plant in them! Very symbolic. Hopefully I manage to make it grow correctly.
