When a particular theme meets an economic need, an institute, which can include Company Agreements and Chairs, is then created. Two of the Group's three lines of research have led to the creation of institutes. An institute is therefore an organisation, within an area of research, that crystallises a body of knowledge and savoir-faire produced by the School. The aim is for an institute to be considered as a centre of outstanding expertise in its professional and academic environment.
