The École Pratique des Hautes Études established in the Sorbonne in 1868, member of PSL Research University (Paris) is acknowledged as one of France's "grands établissements" where research is undertaken in Life and Earth Sciences, Historical and Philological Sciences, and Religious Sciences.

The 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.
