This agreement aims at developing educational programs and joint research projects in Artificial Intelligence, as well as encouraging students and entrepreneurs exchange in the field of Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
The cooperation agreement was signed on April 16th, 2018 as part of the visit of Chen Xu, Chairperson of Tsinghua University Council, at École Polytechnique. Mrs. Chen Xu met with President Jacques Biot to discuss the implementation of the agreement and other possibilities of collaboration.

École Polytechnique and Tsinghua University have been partners for more than 10 years. L’X welcomes students from Tsinghua University in its Ingénieur polytechnicien program and there are several existing research collaborations, mainly in Data Science, Life Sciences and Renewable Energy. The latest agreement on Artificial Intelligence and Innovation therefore strengthens a well-established cooperation between the two universities.
