Research at ESIEA is a collective affair, bringing together research lecturers, research associates, PhD students and undergraduates. It is a fundament component of the education provided by the school: the 2 laboratories are on campus and the researchers involve students in their research work on a regular basis; as part of their lectures, when starting up a research project or in the context of more advanced scientific projects. The laboratories are a valuable resource for students, who have access to them right from year 1.

The time spent in the laboratories encourages the students’ spirit of invention and innovation. The purpose of every applied research project is to solve a genuine problem.

Research and innovation are closely linked to our teaching approach. The research lecturers’ work provides material for all the teaching programmes, especially the Major and Minor subjects in the 5th year.
