The French Institute of Geopolitics was founded in 2002 at the initiative of Béatrice Giblin by ministerial decree (art. 33) at the University of Paris 8, the place where the field of geopolitical studies in France was formed with the creation of the first diploma and research laboratory in 1989. This field emerged from the intellectual project founded by Yves Lacoste with the journal Hérodote in 1976.
The national research institute dedicated to digital sciences, promotes scientific excellence and transfer to have the greatest impact.
It employs 2400 people. Its 200 agile project teams, generally joint with academic partners, involve more than 3000 scientists to meet the challenges of computer science and mathematics, often at the interface of other disciplines.
Inria works with many companies and has supported the creation of more than 160 start-ups. The institute thus strives to respond to the challenges of the digital transformation of science, society and the economy.
In the national and international landscape of recognized higher education institutions, both civilian and military, there can be no quality training without knowledge production.
The first mission of the research centre of the Saint-Cyr Coëtquidan schools is, therefore, to produce knowledge at the cutting edge of scientific knowledge for training.
The CREC also works for the Ministry of Defence to provide it, according to its needs, with notes, studies and “consultations”.
Both a grandes école and a university, the École normale supérieure provides in Paris, in the heart of the Latin Quarter, a training of excellence through research leading to the various teaching and research professions, and contributes to the training through research of senior executives from public administrations and French and European companies. It also defines and implements a scientific and technological research policy from a multidisciplinary and international perspective.
With its 9 Training and Research Units (UFR) and its IUT, the University of Paris Descartes covers all knowledge in the humanities and health sciences.
The only Ile-de-France university bringing together medicine, pharmacy and dentistry, its health centre is recognised in Europe and throughout the world for the quality of its training and the excellence of its research. The University of Paris Descartes has 10 sites located in central Paris and the inner suburbs (Montrouge, Malakoff and Boulogne-Billancourt).
With 15,000 students, a rich multidisciplinary training offer and 19 internationally recognized research laboratories, the Université Savoie Mont Blanc (Chambéry) is a human-sized institution that combines proximity to its territories, membership of the PRES University of Grenoble as a founding member and a wide openness to Europe and the world.
Between Geneva, Turin, Lyon and Grenoble, on the borders of Switzerland and Italy, with the unfailing support of the local authorities that gave birth to it, it is a major player in the field of social, economic and cultural development.
It offers short courses (university degrees, university degrees in technology) and long courses (bachelor’s degrees, masters, doctorates and also engineering degrees), whether in initial training, continuing training, work-linked training or Validation of Acquired Experience (VAE), on site or at a distance.
GEODE is one of the projects pre-selected under the “Centres of Excellence” Label.
The “Centres of Excellence” label is one of the 14 actions of the Higher Education Pact undertaken by the Ministry of the Armed Forces for the benefit of the university community. Created in order to promote the formation of a strategic studies programme, such as Anglo-Saxon War Studies, it aims to contribute to the emergence of national centres of excellence.
