...Exchanging students, professors and ideas...

Created in the fall 2002, the Alliance Program is a non-profit transatlantic joint-venture between Columbia University and three prestigious French institutions: The École Polytechnique, Sciences Po, and Panthéon-Sorbonne University.

Alliance is an innovative program that aims to create and accompany new initiatives in the fields of education cooperation, research collaboration, and policy outreach. Since its founding, Alliance’s scope of activities have included the organization of numerous academic conferences both in Paris and in New York, the setting up of international multidisciplinary research teams, and the creation of joint-courses and curricula targeting the students of its founding partners.


50 events organized per year in Paris and New York
80 professors from our universities involved every year
200 students benefiting every year from our programs and scholarships
