Economics serving society

The Board of Directors

The Paris School of Economics is administered by a Board of Directors (pdf) consisting of representatives of the public and private partners, researchers, and outside personalities. Its members receive no payment for their positions. Presided by Jean-Pierre Danthine since 2015, Board of Directors votes on the budget and selects the scientific programmes following advice from the Scientific Board.


The public founders “college”

Apart from the State, which provided an initial endowment to the Foundation, six public partners were present at the creation of PSE. They provide human resources (Research, Teaching, Technical and Administrative Staff) and financial resources, as well as buildings, in the cadre of multi-year agreements:
> CNRS – Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique
> Ecole des Ponts Paris-Tech
> EHESS – École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales
> ENS – École Normale Supérieure
> INRAE – Institut national de recherche pour l’agriculture, l’alimentation et l’environnement
> Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne

Conseil régional IDFLe Conseil Régional d’Ile de France was fully implicated in PSE creation on the Jourdan campus.


The private partners “college”

> AFPSE – American Foundation for the Paris School of Economics
> AXA
> Boussard et Gavaudan Gestion
> Exane
AFPSE et AXA are represented by Frédéric Allen et Gilles Moec.
The role of private partners is to help break down the barriers between academic research and civil society, and to ensure the solid financial footing of PSE. The presence of private partners is also a sign of good governance.

Scientific “College” Partners (PSE board)

The GENES (Group of National Schools of Economics and Statistics) was established on January the 1st, 2011 as a public scientific, cultural and professional institution (EPSCP), under the technical supervision of the ministry of the economy, finance and industry (INSEE). It groups together four institutions: CREST (Centre for Research in Economics and Statistics), CEPE (Centre for the Study of Economic Programmes), ENSAE (National school of statistics and economic administration) and ENSAI (National school of statistics and information). Its purpose is to conduct research, carry out special studies and expertise projects, and to disseminate information. It is also charged with developing ways to access data, especially public statistics, which it does through the Centre for Secure Remote Access to Data which allows French and overseas researchers to securely access data produced by administrative units, including INSEE. GENES is represented on the board of PSE in the person of Catherine Gaudy, and a number of projects are currently jointly directed by PSE and GENES, notably through CREST (and the Institut des politiques publiques) and ENSAE (partner in the APE Masters).

The National Institute for Demographic Studies (INED) was created in 1945, primarily to study the national and international demographic conjuncture (of rates of marriage, birth, mortality and migration) and their trends and «applications» (including in social life, the economy, public health, human geography and history). Under the direction of Magda Tomasini, INED employs around 200 people, including 60 permanent researchers, 110 technicians and and engineeers, and around 20 doctoral students and associated researchers. A number of projects link the two institutions: work on the ZFUs (Special Urban Zones), on unemployment in the Ile-de-France region, the effects of the Very Fast Train service on urban growth, and the like.

For more than 60 years, the Institute for Development Research (IRD) has engaged in research, expertise, development and training activities aimed at contributing to economic, social and cultural development around the world. This institute comprises 900 researchers, 1,000 engineers and technicians, and 350 local employees who participate directly in more than 50 countries of the global South – in the context of its numerous national, European and international programmes. Flore Gubert, chargée de recherche, represents the IRD on the PSE board. The IRD commitment is focused on the PPD programme. Furthermore, IRD and PSE work together directly on the ambitious project Afristory (a study of African economic history from 1850 to 2000).
