Strasbourg: a major scientific hub and a breeding ground for excellence

The chemistry research cluster in Strasbourg is part of a long tradition of excellence. Louis Pasteur, Nobel Prize winners Emil Fisher, Jean-Marie Lehn, Martin Karplus and more recently, Jean-Pierre Sauvage, are all renowned scientists who have their place in Strasbourg’s history. The University of Strasbourg, in partnership with the CNRS and INSERM, is a centre of scientific excellence in chemistry and was ranked number one in the European Union by the 2020 ARWU league table. A competitive spirit pervades this community of researchers from more than 50 different countries, teams that interact on a daily basis on ambitious subjects that encompass chemistry, biology, physics and medicine, and which have regularly garnered an impressive array of prizes.
