The Chair also supports the work of the IDEA Center, under the academic direction of Julien Levy (lien vers sa page), through various events and demonstrations such as "Digital workshops" aimed at stimulating knowledge production specific to digital transformation as well as participation in Centre events and meetings with other corporate partners to stimulate best practices sharing.
Peter Todd, Dean of HEC Paris, declared at the inauguration of this new Chair: "Digital is at the heart of HEC's development strategy. Our students are committed and responsible actors of the progressing digital revolution. Thanks to the involvement of the Center's corporate partners and Capgemini's consulting expertise, the IDEA Center confirms its ability to interact with managers of corporate partners and students in order to respond to these upheavals and combine innovation and pedagogy. "
Olivier Sevillia, deputy CEO of the Capgemini Group, adds: "We have been partners of HEC since 2004 thanks to values and a common ambition: dare to venture! Boldness is indeed a key value for our Group, which since its inception has valued entrepreneurial culture. Another key value is the trust we place in our technological and academic partners such as HEC, our talents, including the most junior ones, and that of our customers, which is the cornerstone of our growth for almost 50 years ".
