The Foundation for Scientific Cooperation (FSC) Paris-Saclay Campus
The FSC was created in 2007 as the administrative and legal structure for two thematic advanced research networks: Digiteo and Triangle de la Physique. The FCS is the legal entity responsible for the "Paris-Saclay Campus" operation, contributing towards the "Grand Paris" project of national interest. Aside from the two thematic advanced research networks, the FCS has also been home to the Fondation mathématique Jacques Hadamard since 2010.
The FSC brings together research institutes, higher education and research centres, competitiveness clusters and research and higher education clusters that have joined forces to form one of the first campuses with an international dimension. It is chaired by Dominique Vernay.
The Foundation aims to define and implement a strategy of joint scientific cooperation to develop research, education and innovation and contribute to increasing knowledge, expanding solutions to social questions and developing a knowledge-based economy. It has the following objectives:
● to supervise and coordinate all activities within its domain and contribute to the establishment of the Paris-Saclay Campus;
● to implement strategies for joint science, research, education and innovation;
● to attract additional resources to enhance the scientific interaction and international influence of the campus, which will help to attract excellent scientists and international students;
● to manage responses to collective projects, particularly those related to future investments.
