IP Paris' ambition is in line with the major investment plan, "France 2030", announced by the French president, Emmanuel Macron, in October 2021. IP Paris and its member schools are committed to train engineers and researchers capable of meeting the challenges of our century, the energy transition that will affect all human activities, but also the development of our defense and security.

Three years after its creation, as an experimental public institution with the mission of building a world-class multidisciplinary science and technology institute, leader in France and Europe, IP Paris is now entering the implementation phase of this ambition for the next five years. This first COP is a key step in driving and boosting the transformation of IP Paris into a world-class science and technology institute.

IP Paris' main strategic development priorities for 2022-2026 will be to scale up the Institute's academic, research and innovation related activities, develop the IP Paris research center, build a campus that meets international standards and is exemplary in terms of sustainable development, and increase the human and financial resources to support this growth.

In a changing and increasingly complex world, Institut Polytechnique de Paris is a key player in training tomorrow's leaders, and in the development of a research and innovative environment that benefits society. The objectives and actions defined in the COP 2022-2026 will provide our students with the necessary expertise to answer the needs of the job market, allow the development of large-scale research projects in key areas such as sustainable energy, AI or biomedical engineering, and promote initiatives that create bridges between research and innovation.
