To bring businesses and private individuals together on its development project, the Mines de Nantes School has been given an endowment fund.

This will financially support programs with five main priorities:

  • research and training excellence,
  • internationalization of the School,
  • equal opportunities,
  • actions in favor of sustainable development,
  • societal commitment and economic development of the territory.

The creation of an industrial education and research chair is one of the key forms of collaboration for the Mines Nantes endowment fund. As part of a long-term partnership perspective with large industrial partners, the chairs embody the school’s teaching and research expertise in emerging themes designed for and with partner companies. They firmly establish founding partner(s) of the chair and the School as international benchmarks in innovative and ambitious research and teaching projects.
