Research

Make the campus a Lab for generating ideas and innovation!

Because we facilitate Research and create synergies between professors, students and entrepreneurs.

Data Factory project

A Data Factory is in the introductory phase to promote the research work of Professors, students and entrepreneurs.

Interested companies will be able to propose data sets of anonymized data for finding new added value ideas in order to:

  • develop new offers and initiatives. One priority is AI for business. Artificial intelligence indeed opens up a considerable field of innovations both in terms of digital transformation and entrepreneurship. The award-winning startup projects from the latest Startup Launchpad promotion all involve AI, thanks to the contributions of students from the new X-HEC Data Science for Business program. HEC is currently working alongside centers of technical expertise in AI (engineering schools, universities, companies), on several initiatives exploring and promoting the development of AI in the business world: business creation, AI's impact upon management, and its application in companies.
     
  • reinforce our means of cooperating with partner companies: direct access to a larger number of students from both Grande Ecole and MBA to ensure high-quality recruitment of expert profiles
     
  •  make the campus a Lab for generating ideas and innovation.
