L’habilitation à diriger des recherches

The habilitation à diriger des recherches (HDR) recognises the candidate’s highest scientific level, his original scientific approach, his ability to master a research strategy in a large scientific or technological field and his capacity to supervise young researchers. Moreover, it enables candidates to access to the status of university professor. According to the decree of the 5th of November 2019, l’Université PSL is authorised to issue the HDR diploma. Delegations for the administration of PSL HDR have been given to eight PSL component institutions.
