A word from the President
Arnaud Marquis – President of the Agefpi Endowment Fund
“For more than a century, in an international climate shaped by significant economic and environmental challenges, the training provided by Grenoble INP-Pagora has supported and secured the progression of our sector, which is founded on biobased materials.
I graduated from this engineering school in 1994, having received top-class training that successfully combines theory and practice, while benefiting from close ties with the industrial world. This is a hugely motivating factor that allows students to prepare for the wealth of professional opportunities open to them when they graduate. Personally, it enabled me to rise from the position of process engineer, which I held early in my career, then of VP at Ahlstrom, to that of Vice President Hardflooring EMEA at Tarkett. Today, the excellence of this training, which is continuously tailored to the needs of businesses, together with the skills and innovative spirit displayed by its graduates, fully satisfies my industry’s requirements.
The role of the Agefpi Endowment Fund is to facilitate the emergence and completion of projects that raise the profile of Grenoble INP-Pagora, its students, its teacher-researchers, its graduates and its partner companies.
With your support, Grenoble INP-Pagora will set an even greater benchmark when it comes to training engineers in all fields relating to the valorisation and functionalisation of biomass.”
