ESCP Europe leads an ambitious and innovative research policy. The Foundation actively supports the research activities of the School through the funding of Chairs, Professorships, PhD. programme and Prizes for best research theses.

“Factory for the Future” Chair with Safran, Safran Aircraft Engines and Groupe Michelin
“Industrial Relations and Firms’ Competitiveness” Chair in partnership with Airbus Group, Renault, Sodexo and Solvay

The Foundation contributes to strengthening the role of ESCP Europe among the players in international management research. The growing number of doctoral candidates affords a high level of production and scientific credibility for the School. This requires a capacity to offer scholarships to students with excellent profiles who do not have sufficient funds to carry out their research activities.
In 2017, the Foundation has financed 9 grants for students on the Paris campus PhD. Programme.
