Chimie ParisTech has been training chemical engineers and PhDs in all sectors of the industry for the past 120 years. The establishment of close ties between the school and the industrial world is fundamental in the training of future senior executives. Strong of their scientific expertise, they are equipped to respond to the industry’s new needs and develop its innovations in a world of constantly increasing competition.
Close ties with companies
The involvement of companies in the academic life is one of Chimie ParisTech’s major assets, both in research and in its students’ education. This involvement is a strong strategic focus and enables the school to offer its researchers and students an ever more favorable environment for innovation.
Chimie ParisTech offers different types of partnerships to companies that want to become involved in academic life to build lasting relationships with students and to make themselves known to future engineers.
Chimie ParisTech’s influence is based on an extremely dynamic research cluster that conducts a multidisciplinary research activity at the best academic level on a national and international level.
The school’s research structure offers innovative and integrated research that is comprehensive and ranges from fundamentals to applications, covering the major areas of current chemistry (energy, resources, health, etc.). This research is done with a strong interaction with the industrial world, which allows it to register its research work in a partnership model of valorization in the long term. The aim of these partnerships is to initiate technology transfers that lead to joint patent filings. This is therefore a strong foundation for the development of the school’s innovation policy.
As part of its goal to develop its entrepreneurial culture, Chimie ParisTech wanted to implement and finance the creation of a place of innovation dedicated to chemistry within its walls: the Chimie Paris Innov incubator. Thanks to this organization, Chimie ParisTech has had a complete organization since 2017 that is focused on the creation of companies and the hosting innovative start-ups in the field of chemistry.
With such research potential, the school has been able to develop a lifelong learning program that adapts to the needs of companies and industry executives in order to keep them up-to-date on the latest technological advances.
