• VINCI will give €6 million over five years to fund research into building energy efficiency, life cycle analysis, sustainable mobility, and biodiversity.
• The agreement will increase operational collaboration between science and industry.
• The research will assist VINCI expand its product, service, and solution offerings, as well as support the environmental transition in its business lines.
VINCI, AgroParisTech, Mines Paris-PSL, and École des Ponts ParisTech renewed their collaboration for a fourth cycle.
VINCI is allocating a €6 million budget from now until 2028 with this sponsorship. The Group also provides scientists with test sites to investigate three topics: building energy efficiency (Mines Paris-PSL), biodiversity (AgroParisTech), and sustainable mobility (École des Ponts ParisTech).
The new research cycle, which began today, is aimed at three key goals: – factoring the planet’s limits into building and infrastructure projects to reduce their environmental impact; – developing the use of artificial intelligence in decarbonizing buildings and mobility; and – improving well-being, comfort, and health through ongoing efforts to cool urban heat islands and improve the water cycle in cities.
