École Polytechnique

As a higher education establishment, École Polytechnique, also known as l’X, naturally seeks to share the most up-to-date knowledge to benefit its students, selected based on the criteria of excellence for which it is renowned.

However, École Polytechnique also creates knowledge, for its professors are both teachers and researchers. It hosts around twenty laboratories, which are closely connected to French national research institutions and committed to prestigious international collaboration. The aim of these laboratories is to achieve results in the form of intellectual property rights and publications in leading journals in both fundamental and applied research.

École Polytechnique’s credo is to be multidisciplinary both in its teaching and research. Structured around ten scientific disciplines, including humanities and social sciences, it focuses its research on eight themes that involve collaboration between the laboratories. Such a model stems from the observation that fruitful innovations accepted by society are born from the confrontation and cooperation of disciplines, including philosophy.
