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

Alliance is an innovative program whose aim is to initiate and accompany new initiatives in the fields of education cooperation, research collaboration, and policy outreach. Over the last four years the 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.
