ParisTech, the Institute of Science and Technology in Paris, is an inter-institutional co-operative organisation working to develop joint educational, research, and innovation projects in the fields of science, technology and management.
It is a public scientific co-operation institution (EPCS), and groups together 12 Grandes Écoles in the Île-de-France region which are among the most prestigious in their field.
The complementary nature of the areas of excellence of the ParisTech Grandes Écoles provides students, researchers, and all partners with an outstanding pool which allows for a unique transdisciplinarity. At ParisTech, there is close interaction internationally in both teaching and research through the many partnership agreements.
The ParisTech Grandes Écoles, based at three campuses (Paris, Saclay and Marne-la-Vallée), are active members in the structuring of higher education by site in the Île-de-France region, in a process which they have focused on to ensure complementarity with that of ParisTech.
The development of ParisTech is based on three main areas:
- the promotion of education based on the French Grande École model in France and abroad
- multi-disciplinarity in education and research for the benefit of business
- increasing commitment to promote diversity
«The complementary nature of the areas of excellence of the ParisTech Grandes Écoles allows for a unique transdisciplinarity. »
Jean-Philippe Vanot, President of ParisTech
The ParisTech brand name: an international standard
The ParisTech brand name, which was registered in 1999, focuses on two values: education based on the French Grande École model in France and abroad, and multi-disciplinarity in education and research for the benefit of business.
ParisTech has gained strong public recognition over the years, due to its close ties with major foreign universities and its many partnerships with international companies. Through the ParisTech brand name, the Grandes Écoles can benefit from international recognition.
