The companies and the Foundation CentraleSupélec

CentraleSupélec is resolutely the school for companies, many of which have made a commitment to the School in order to be closely associated with its engineering training and research. They are also at the heart of the actions of the Fondation CentraleSupélec, via the research chairs, of course, and by supporting numerous projects that strengthen their links with our students and researchers.

"At CentraleSupélec, we have opted for a global approach to corporate relations, regardless of the entry point to the School. This positioning leads us to work in synergy with the Corporate relations and development Departement (DREV) and the CentraleSupélec Foundation

Contrary to what is observed in many Grandes écoles, the Foundation does not simply play the role of a "tax vehicle" for corporate financial support. It is much more widely involved with the Corporate relations and development Departement (DREV), for example by identifying prospects and targeting alumni who could help us carry out projects in companies. we are continuously working together, and the support of the Foundation allows us to implement many projects with high added value or the School and the companies. The creation of the AI Hub, in which the Foundation has been a key player, is a good illustration.

Lusis, an SME specializing in payment systems and market finance, has joined forces with CentraleSupélec to create an Artificial Intelligence Chair dedicated to two main areas: payment fraud detection and trading. This is the first chair signed by CentraleSupélec with a French SME with high technological potential.
