VINCI renews its partnership with AgroParisTech, Mines Paris-PSL and École des Ponts ParisTech

1. 12. 2023 - 08:45 - Events - Frankreich

• VINCI will contribute €6 million over 5 years to fund research into energy efficiency of buildings, neighbourhood life cycle analysis, sustainable mobility and biodiversity.
• The partnership will expand operational collaboration between science and industry.
• The research will enhance VINCI's range of products, services and solutions, and help it support the environmental transition in its business lines.

VINCI, AgroParisTech, Mines Paris-PSL and École des Ponts ParisTech signed an agreement renewing their partnership for a fourth cycle.

Through this sponsorship, VINCI is committing with a €6 million budget from now until 2028. The Group is also providing scientists with testing grounds to explore three topics: energy efficiency of buildings (Mines Paris-PSL), biodiversity (AgroParisTech) and sustainable mobility (École des Ponts ParisTech).

The new research cycle beginning today is aimed at three key goals:
   - factoring the planet's limits into building and infrastructure projects in order to reduce their environmental impact;
   - developing the use of artificial intelligence in decarbonising buildings and mobility;
   - enhancing well-being, comfort and health with ongoing efforts to cool urban heat islands and improve the water cycle in cities.

It is also aimed at generating a greater number of operational applications by stepping up the Research & Solutions programme, which involves projects arising from VINCI employees' proposals linked to environmental solutions developed by the Group.

Since 2008, the Group has invested €12 million in more than 75 partnership-based research projects, leveraging a network of 50 researchers and 100 VINCI employees. Lab recherche environnement has already enriched a variety of environmental solutions available from VINCI business lines including Revilo® (cooling urban heat islands), Equo Vivo (ecological engineering), freight carbon emission reduction on motorways, real-time building energy management and airport services.
