Teaching and Research Chairs
École Polytechnique has set up privileged partnerships with the world of industry through teaching and research chairs.
A long-standing partnership with businesses
École Polytechnique was one of the first institutions of higher education in France to launch a business chair. That was back in 2003. Ever since then, a number of new chairs have been created and 18 of them are currently active at l’X.
Industrial chairs are funded through teaching and research sponsorship.
