On the Road and International Delegations

UPSaclay at NU

We were pleased to welcome the delegation from UP Saclay on campus in February.

The team was led by Guillaume Garreta, Director of International Development and Said Zouhdi, Head of International Affairs, Polytech Paris-Sud.  It was an opportunity to celebrate the signing of an MOU between our two institutions and the many joint endeavors.

The University of Paris-Saclay is a cluster of universities and research centers in the area of Paris, France.

Université Paris-Saclay brings together, in a unique model a combination, independent research, educational institutions, and research organizations, who have their own identity and resources, agree to coordinate their actions and pool specific resources as part of a shared project defined and implemented jointly.  Currently, there are research co-ops offered at one of the founding members, Paris-Sud. Additionally, UPSaclay is also a collaborating partner of the NUconvergence conferences.  Last year a delegation visited Northeastern for the 2018 Frontiers in Aerospace conference, and this year UT will co-host the next one in Paris.
