Research at the EPHE

monday 16 october 2017 - 14:15

The École Pratique des Hautes Études (EPHE) focuses on unique fields of knowledge. Lectures and other learning strategies, offered by over 260 faculty, provide an exceptional opportunity for immediate immersion into research as practiced in a myriad of fields including languages and religions of Pre-Islamic Central Asia, the major monotheistic faiths, Chinese archaeology, Hebrew palaeography, Greek dialectology and digital humanities in the sphere of Social Sciences and Humanities; coral reef biodiversity, neurosciences and cognitive science, cellular environment and regulation in the Life and Earth Sciences sector… as well as transdisciplinary issues that bridge these key areas of knowledge.

Ever mindful of the societal challenges of the scientific issues that it studies, the EPHE comprises three institutes which provide courses and which also have a primary role as an observatory: the European Institute of Religious Sciences, the Pacific Coral Reef Institute and the Transdisciplinary Institute for the Study of Aging.

Two Laboratories of Excellence (LabEx) are promoted by the École Pratique des Hautes Études: the “Coral reefs facing global climate change” LabEx (CORAIL - Récifs coralliens face au changement global), a French center of excellence created to study coral reefs, and the HaStec LabEx, a multidisciplinary center of excellence, studies the historic intermingling of Knowledge, Technologies and Beliefs.
