The EDENE program aims to train future researchers while developing their capacity for innovation, through collaborations between research centers of excellence and public / private partnerships. But it also aims to strengthen collaborations with socio-economic players in the area and cross-border university players. For this, 7 partners are collaborating with the UPPA:

  • the University of Zaragoza,
  • international companies (TotalEnergies, Enedis, NALDEO, Teréga),
  • a competitiveness cluster (POLE AVENIA) and
  • a technology transfer office (Aquitaine Science Transfert - SATT)

By relying on its strengths in terms of location (the Pyrenean region of France, neighboring Spain), the UPPA has developed cross-border collaborations and solid partnerships with international companies established in the southwestern region of France.

Région Nouvelle-Aquitaine and Communauté d'Agglomération Pau Béarn Pyrénées are cofunding Cohort#1.
