Applied research is structured around four education and research Chairs maintained by the Department of Economics:
The companies who are partners to the Department of Economics Chairs are sponsors who help to develop teaching and/or research expertise, according to the chair, linked to precise, defined themes and objectives, which are presented to a committee of experts. They lead to close collaboration between the world of teaching and/or research and that of industry. The heads of chairs are world-renowned specialists who coordinate the activities of their respective chairs and relations between École Polytechnique and partner companies.
