E2S: Energy and Environment Solutions

What is E2S UPPA?

The consortium at the heart of the Energy Environment Solutions (E2S) project is composed of the University of Pau and the Pays de l’Adour (UPPA) and three national research organisations, National Institute for Agronomy and the Environment (INRAE), Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation (Inria) and the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) .

The core scientific domain of the project focuses on Environment and Energy and relies on strongly recognised laboratories supported by state-of-the-art equipment. The assessment and acceptance of new solutions and the public regulations will supply the area with interdisciplinary reflection.

One of E2S UPPA principal assets is its strong relationships with major international companies which can find in this partnership the scientific excellence they expect. Their industrial R&D centres on the site are already a key factor in consortium policy and will play a growing part for the next ten years.

These companies have created CEPyA (Cluster Enterprises Pyrénées Adour) which supports E2S UPPA in its trajectory towards a model for scientific excellence and international visibility.

Another primary goal is to increase international attractiveness in both education and research: to attract the world's best students, the university will acheive higher and higher level of quality.

Management and efficiency are conditions for success. UPPA went from an organisation split in 10 components to a structure with three integrated faculties. A specific governance has been created for the project.

An aggressive recruiting policy generates an increase in academic researchers and PhD students. The industrial partnerships provide new forces, which, associated with the consortium's potential, has a leverage effect on research and innovation.
