Our goals

Act. Cooperate. Share.


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, 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 higher education in the Île-de-France region. 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


Lasting and strong relationships with business partners 

ParisTech aims to sustain and expand the relationships between its Grandes Écoles and business. It promotes their strengths and supports the setting up of collective and multi-disciplinary projects.

The member Grandes Écoles are very focused on the ties established with the world of business which are materialised in the shape of various support activities and partnerships:
