Partnership research manages all the contracts between the laboratories and the industries. These can comprise research collaborations and theses, or simply feedback.
The partnership research concerns itself with implementing a methodology for contract negotiation and making partnerships between industries and laboratories fair. It is essential that the expertise of ENSTA Paris researchers and laboratories gains recognition, since it directly results in funding.
As a matter of fact, half of the 25 to 30 partnership research contracts signed per year are accompanied by funding from industries, ranging from 5,000 to 500,000 euros, most of them being between 20,000 and 100,000 euros.
ENSTA Paris is involved in a dozen chairs, common laboratories and sponsorship agreements.
