The research developed by the teacher-researchers is part of the scientific development of the University Gustave Eiffel. We find there the central theme of the Sustainable City with the challenges that a city must be:

  • energy efficient
  • safe and resilient
  • smart and connected

It places people at the centre of its concerns to give them their full place in a rapidly changing environment: digital, ecological and economic.

The theme of health and its place in the city (environment, pollution, well-being of the person, help with disabilities) is also very strongly anchored in the scientific issues facing the research professors of ESIEE Paris.

To meet its challenges, ESIEE Paris brings its expertise in the field of:

  • digital technologies through Datasciences, cybersecurity and Artificial Intelligence for data processing
  • the physics of sensors and microsystems for monitoring the environment and people
  • embedded systems and their optimization for the development of autonomous systems and connected objects (IOT)
  • innovation management to have tools to understand the growing growth brought by the digitization of our world

  • Around 200 major publications or communications per year
  • 1 M € average annual turnover for research contracts
  • 3.5 M € of current research contracts
  • 1 ERC Starting grant carried by a researcher from ESIEE Paris

Context of the COMUE Paris-Est-SUP

ESIEE Paris is a member of the higher education and research community in the Eastern Paris region: Paris-Est Sup. This COMUE coordinates 16 institutions at the territorial level and promotes the emergence and development of new academic and scientific projects. There are the following establishments: Gustave Eiffel University, Paris-Est Créteil Val de Marne University, Ecole des Ponts ParisTech and National Veterinary School of Alfort

More locally, on the Descartes campus where the school is located, ESIEE Paris makes many contributions, in particular through active participation in several initiatives of excellence, labeled as part of the Future Investment Program (PIA) led by the National Research Agency (ANR):
