Philippe Varin, Corinne Degoutte et Yves Poilane.
21/11/2012 | Paris

Yesterday, at PSA Peugeot Citroën's corporate headquarters, Philippe Varin, Chairman of the Managing Board of PSA Peugeot Citroën, and Yves Poilane, President of ParisTech, signed a partnership agreement concerning the development of collaborative projects in R&D and education.

Amongst the agreement's priority projects, the partners emphasised:

  • The international aspects, particularly the partnerships in China. PSA Peugeot Citroën is supporting the ICARE Institute's Renewable Energy Science and Technology Master's programme in Wuhan and is participating in the Tongji Franco-Chinese Institute and the ParisTech-Shanghai Jiao Tong engineering school.
  • The VeDeCom Institute, which has been certified by the French government as an Institute of Excellence in Carbon-Free Energy Sources (IEED). PSA Peugeot Citroën and ParisTech are both partners in VeDeCom.
  • The various cooperative ventures already in place or to come. In particular, this concerns the participation by ParisTech member schools in the OpenLabs, the endowed teaching and research chairs and participation in graduate programmes, such as masters and doctorial degrees.

To remain at the forefront in automotive products and services, PSA Peugeot Citroën is strengthening its relationships with top prestigious schools and universities in Europe, Asia and Latin America.

Created in 2010 to ensure the Group's managerial and technical excellence, PSA Peugeot Citroën University deploys partnerships and endows academic chairs around the world to attract the finest talent and to enable the Group's research engineers to further their education.

ParisTech, a major participant in the French higher education and research community, comprises 12 of the country's leading management and engineering schools covering a broad array of sciences, technologies and management fields. This multi-disciplinary vision enables it to forge collaborative projects at several levels, in particular with the companies that cooperate regularly with its member schools.

This latest agreement is therefore intended to develop world-class, cross-school education and research projects.
