Birth of the new public higher education and research: Institut Polytechnique de Paris (IP Paris)
The May 31, 2019 decree published in the French official journal on June 2, 2019 formally establishes the experimental public institution to be known as "Institut Polytechnique de Paris" and approves its articles of association. This new institution groups together a number of existing schools: École Polytechnique, ENSTA Paris, ENSAE Paris, GENES, Télécom Paris and Telecom SudParis, all IMT (Institut Mines-Télécom) schools. The status of "experimental public institution" makes it possible to group together public or private higher education and research institutions that contribute to providing a public higher education and research service. Introduced by an ordinance formed on December 12, 2018, it allows the institutions involved to retain their own legal personality.
Telecom SudParis supports more than 15 business start-ups a year. Its incubator, IMT Starter, was among the first created in France. It launched the second largest Entrepreneurship Competition in France, the Digital Start-up Trophy, to identify and support start-up companies in the Ile-de-France region.
