A student of the UPPA invited at the ElyséeMukesh Kumar was invited at the Elysée with the other laureates of the programme Make Our Planet Great Again


Mukesh KUMAR, Pakistani student enrolled in the SIMulation and Optimization of energy Systems international (SIMOS) Master programme at ENSGTI (one of the UPPA’s engineering school) was invited at the Elysée Palace on Thursday, December 12th, for a two-hour seminar attended by the president of the French Republic, Emmanuel Macron, as part of the Make Our Planet Great Again (MOPGA) initiative.


Since September 2018, Mukesh KUMAR is a recipient of the prestigious and very selective Make Our Planet Great Again scholarship; Mukesh was selected among 1800 candidates and now benefits from a monthly merit scholarship. 
This scholarship was created upon the initiative of Emmanuel Macron, in June 2017, after the decision of the United States of America to forsake the Paris Agreement of November 2004. This priority research programme focuses on fighting against climate change and highlights France's support for researchers, students, entrepreneurs, associations and NGOs mobilized in the fight against climate change.

Mukesh is also one of the laureates of the Talents Academy scholarship programme funded by E2S UPPA. After obtaining his Master degree in 2019, he plans to stay at the UPPA for a PhD.


While at the Elysee Palace, Mukesh was able to offer to Emmanuel Macron an "Ajrak", a scarf that symbolizes the culture and traditions of Sindh, the region from which he comes from in Pakistan.
