Emergence(s)Key events in research at the UPPA

“Just a year ago, in the last issue of Emergence(s), I wrote that the kick-off of the I-Site Energy and Environment Solutions project (E2S UPPA) was not an end in itself but the beginning of a fantastic adventure. And everything we hoped for has been fulfilled: the project is gradually gaining momentum, sometimes faster than expected, confirming a little more, each day, that we have made the right strategic choices.

Opening of three high-level international Chairs, creation of five new partnership-based Chairs, emergence of a service dedicated to strategic cooperation with the best universities in the world, valorization of our laboratories’ scientific power through the deployment of an exceptional instrumental service center, a twofold increase in the number of courses taught in English, and so on. For the researchers of the Université de Pau et des Pays de l’Adour, 2018 definitely marked the beginning of a new era.

Our small university is gradually gaining international visibility and its fields of excellence are becoming increasingly recognized. Our efforts and the invested resources are starting to bear fruit. More particularly, they have proved beneficial for all our research teams, whatever their discipline (sciences and technologies, social sciences and humanities or European and international studies). I firmly believe that the future will be both multi-disciplinary and multi-scale.

Despite our new international dimension, we must never lose sight of the fact that our university is unique, through its diversity, the quality of its research work and its capacity to meet major global challenges as well as those on a local and regional scale: on one hand, the energy transition, water conservation, and so on; on the other hand, the history of the small winegrowers of South-West France, the study of trans-Pyrenean literary heritage, etc. As many diverse and captivating research topics for you to read about in the latest issue of EMERGENCE(S), available for the very first time in English.”

Mohamed Amara, President of the Université de Pau et des Pays de l’Adour
