Launched by the alumni in 2005, the ESCP Europe Foundation became a public utility foundation by a decree published on 18 March 2012. Its aim is to support the ambitions and the academic excellence of ESCP Europe through three initiatives:
- Diversity and international appeal (scholarships, equal opportunities programmes)
- High-level research – through chairs, institutes and research centres, funding to support research – with a view to developing competitiveness and innovation in France and abroad
- Teaching innovation through the implementation of innovative pedagogical tools and the digital campus.
To accomplish its goals, the ESCP Europe Foundation is launching a fund-raising campaign targeting companies and individuals.
