Michel Prigent, Chairman of the Executive Board of the Presses Universitaires de France, has just left us.

The beautiful house he ran is the one he started in
his publishing career, almost forty years ago. Thanks to him, the
Presses Universitaires de France was able to modernize and renew
their collections without ever losing their identity.
Man of great culture and entrepreneur
Michel Prigent had allowed Les Presses
University of France to overcome the difficulties that all
publishing houses, in recent decades, have faced, but more
especially those who have specialized in science
human.
If PUF can soon celebrate their 90 years with a recovered health
and the prospect of a long life, they owe it first to Michel
Prigent.
