Project on the creation of the Fondation École Industrie to bring together public and private funds in the production of digital educational resources

The project

The Ministry of National Education and Youth, in partnership with the Ministry of the Economy and Finance and the CNI, aimed to create a foundation recognized as being of public utility to act as a lever in the financing of digital resources enhancing industry in education. This approach is part of the continuity of the Etincel project and the multiple partnerships that have been forged between public and private actors at the national and regional level.
