The mission of ENS Paris-Saclay is to prepare students for careers in teaching and research, with a research led-education of the highest standard.

To fulfil this mission, the School must develop cutting-edge research activities while offering excellent graduate training at both doctorate and master's level.

Research at ENS Paris-Saclay reflects a commitment to linking basic research to applications with a strong experimental dimension. As a member of Université Paris-Saclay, the School is able to intensify collaboration with laboratories from the other partner institutions and coordinate its strategy with theirs.

The School also benefits from Université Paris-Saclay's high profile and international attractiveness to diversify its student body.
