IP Paris launches its digital review « Polytechnique Insights »
Polytechnique Insights, a new free digital publication, covers a broad spectrum of fundamental and applied research topics, drawing on the work carried out by researchers from the engineering schools within the Institut Polytechnique de Paris (Ecole Polytechnique, ENSTA Paris, ENSAE Paris, Télécom Paris and TélécomSudParis) and other higher education and research institutions.
“Polytechnique Insights embodies the excellence, diversity, and innovation potential of our research and the ecosystem we have built at the Institut Polytechnique de Paris, driven by our teachers and researchers, our alumni, and our research and industrial partners. In addition to being the main driver of awareness for IP Paris, this online review contributes to the initiatives that will allow France to become a key player in scientific progress and societal well-being’, said Eric Labaye, President of the Institut Polytechnique de Paris and of Ecole Polytechnique.
Polytechnique Insights focuses on topics in line with the public interest and offers two types of editorial formats: researcher columns and extensive articles to help shed light on major contemporary issues, such as environment, health, natural resources, energy, finance or demography.
The review’s content, gathered in a free bi-monthly newsletter distributed every other Friday, is available in English and in French on the Polytechnique Insights website, and shared mainly on LinkedIn and Twitter.
For its first issue, available since February 5th, Polytechnique Insights focuses on topics including the current health crisis, personalized medicine, air transport decarbonation, and bioplastics.
