A partner school for French and foreign industry

The dynamism of its links with French and foreign industry and the professionalism of this relationship have enabled the School, in association with the other members of the Carnot M.I.N.E.S. institute, to obtain the Carnot label. This label is awarded to research structures that place partnership research at the heart of their strategy and is valid for a period of 5 years. The M.I.N.ES Carnot Institute has held this label without interruption since 2006.

Each partnership research project is the subject of an agreement that specifies the conditions of execution, the terms of sharing the rights to the results, the rules of exploitation and the conditions of financing.

The Institut Carnot M.I.N.E.S brings together the research teams of Mines Paris- PSL, ARMINES, IMT Nord Europe, IMT Mines Ales, IMT Mines Albi, IMT Atlantique, Mines St Etienne, École Polytechnique, ENSTA Paris and Clermont Auvergne INP.
