ESPCI ParisTech is home to 17 advanced research laboratories at the frontiers of scientific knowledge and experimental know-how, and covering areas ranging FROM polymers to telecommunications, from nanobiophysics to organic synthesis, from environmental science to biomedical imaging, from neurobiology to microfluidics, from soft matter to quantum physics, and from colloids to industrial prototyping.
ESPCI ParisTech researchers are ahead of the curve in foreseeing industry needs and pioneering new solutions. Their investigations into nature and matter are based on concrete situations with implications for industry; and they publish on average one article per day in leading peer-reviewed international scientific journals.
This constant interchange between science and industrial applications has resulted in a remarkably effective entrepreneurial culture in which technological innovation is the necessary precondition for market success. ESPCI ParisTech scientists file for an average of one patent a week, and each year enable several start-ups to make commercial use of inventions and discoveries arising from their research.
