Economics serving society

PSE Partnership Programme

The PSE Partnership Programme has two ambitions:

  • To support firms and organisations to develop strategies in the face of the global challenges that are affecting their economic and social environments.
  • To break down barriers and to unite researchers, decision makers and economic actors around strong themes and topics, developed by major international research teams.

This Programme is helped by advice and support from the Strategic Development Board, composed of prominent personalities from private and public enterprises. PSE thus develops Research Chairs that benefit from non-academic partnerships to support its various research projects of three to five-year periods (renewable). PSE has formed seven research chairs in partnership with public institutions (Banque de France, Assistance Publique – Hôpitaux de Paris, Dares-Unedic-Mairie de Paris, Insee) and private firms and foundations (Scor, Fondation Ardian, Hermès, QuantCube, Candriam, Société Générale), as well as Ministries (Labor and Education).

PSE offers professional, inter-company and customised continuing education and also responds to requests from diverse sources for bespoke expertise that meets the precise operational needs of organisations. These studies and assessments, which can last anywhere from a few weeks to several years, result in fruitful exchanges between private actors and the academic world.

Executives and managers from the public and private sectors can join the Macro Club, a place for regular exchanges between macroeconomists.

Finally, individuals and companies can become Sponsors of the Paris School of Economics by contributing to the Foundation’s capital endowment. This long-term support is essential to the development and international influence of the research and training provided at PSE.
