    Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy of Com­piègne (UTC) is the EPOG+ coor­di­na­tor. It is a found­ing mem­ber of “Alliance Sor­bonne Uni­ver­sité”, which received the French gov­ern­ment excel­lence ini­tia­tive grant (IdEX) in 2018. It is ranked 101–150 by Times High­er Edu­ca­tion (THE) in the 2018 Young Uni­ver­si­ty Rank­ings (uni­ver­si­ties estab­lished with­in the past 50 years). UTC is among the very best engi­neer­ing school in France. It is a place of aca­d­e­m­ic excel­lence where inter­dis­ci­pli­nary and inno­va­tion are sup­port­ed both in edu­ca­tion and research. UTC brings to EPOG+ its exper­tise on knowl­edge, inno­va­tion and the dig­i­tal tran­si­tion, its strong rela­tions with pri­vate actors and its capac­i­ty to gath­er skills from both acad­e­mia and the world of work and entre­pre­neur­ship. The EPOG+ pro­pos­al involves aca­d­e­m­ic staff from the COSTECH lab, an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary research unit on tech­nol­o­gy and the triple inter­face “Man, Tech­nol­o­gy, Soci­ety”, includ­ing an empha­sis on cog­ni­tive cap­i­tal­ism. It is mem­ber of two research labs of excel­lence (LabEx) labelled after a nation­al com­pe­ti­tion: SITES/IFRIS on “inno­va­tion” and MS2T (on “sys­tems of systems”).

    Sorbonne Université

    Sor­bonne Uni­ver­si­ty (SU) is a mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary, research-inten­sive and world-class aca­d­e­m­ic insti­tu­tion, which received the French gov­ern­ment excel­lence ini­tia­tive grant (IdEX) in 2018. It is ranked 36th by ARWU in 2018, 73rd by THE World Uni­ver­si­ty Rank­ings in 2019 and 75th by QS Glob­al World Rank­ing. Con­tin­u­ing the human­ist tra­di­tion of the Sor­bonne, it is devot­ed to meet­ing the sci­en­tif­ic chal­lenges of the 21st cen­tu­ry and spread­ing the knowl­edge cre­at­ed in its lab­o­ra­to­ries by its research teams to its stu­dents and to soci­ety as a whole. SU is made of three fac­ul­ties: arts and human­i­ties, sci­ence and engi­neer­ing, and med­i­cine. Its fac­ul­ty of arts and human­i­ties is today the largest fac­ul­ty in France in the field of arts, lan­guages, lit­er­a­ture, social sci­ences and human­i­ties. SU sup­ports the devel­op­ment of an inter­cul­tur­al con­text for its stu­dents through an inter­na­tion­al­i­sa­tion of its aca­d­e­m­ic pro­grams. SU brings to EPOG+ inter­dis­ci­pli­nary per­spec­tives in eco­nom­ics, soci­ol­o­gy, but also in the oth­er social sci­ences. With the “Sor­bonne Uni­ver­sité Alliance”, it has cre­at­ed the “Insti­tute for the Envi­ron­men­tal Tran­si­tion” (SU-ITE) which gath­ers 54 lab­o­ra­to­ries and about 2000 researchers work­ing on the eco­log­i­cal tran­si­tion. It is also a core mem­ber of “EIT Cli­mate-KIC”, the EU’s largest pub­lic-pri­vate part­ner­ship address­ing cli­mate change through innovation.

It is an inte­gral part of the local com­mu­ni­ty, and con­tributes to and encour­ages dia­logue between urban and sub­ur­ban actors, pro­motes cul­tur­al inter­ac­tion, social inte­gra­tion and devel­op­ment. It is an inter­na­tion­al actor and has part­ner­ship arrange­ments with many HEI and region­al and inter­na­tion­al organ­i­sa­tions. Its rela­tion­ships with uni­ver­si­ties abroad are increas­ing and in 2017 num­bered around 500 agree­ments with for­eign uni­ver­si­ties. Many bilat­er­al and mul­ti­lat­er­al agree­ments are with insti­tu­tions involved in the project. UNITO brings to EPOG+ the excel­lence in the eco­nom­ics of knowl­edge and inno­va­tion, and inter­dis­ci­pli­nary study of polit­i­cal sci­ence and economics.

    The Uni­ver­si­ty Roma Tre (ROMA3) is a young, dynam­ic and mod­ern insti­tu­tion, found­ed in 1992. It has grown rapid­ly in num­ber of stu­dents and gained an excel­lent rep­u­ta­tion: it is well ranked in eval­u­a­tions of aca­d­e­m­ic insti­tu­tions its teach­ing and research. It is ranked 801‑1000 in QS Glob­al World Rank­ing and the School of Eco­nom­ics is among the top 25% of Ital­ian insti­tu­tions in the RePEc rank­ing.

ROMA3 brings to EPOG+ a com­bi­na­tion of socioe­co­nom­ic, finan­cial and eco­log­i­cal exper­tise, main­ly from a macro­eco­nom­ic perspective. 

    The Berlin School of Eco­nom­ics and Law (HWR) is com­prised of 14 Research Cen­tres and Insti­tutes and 5 Fac­ul­ties offer­ing cours­es in pri­vate and pub­lic sec­tor busi­ness admin­is­tra­tion, eco­nom­ics and admin­is­tra­tion, and as well as law and secu­ri­ty man­age­ment. Over 11000 stu­dents are enrolled in bachelor’s and master’s pro­grammes. HWR is ranked high­ly in nation­al rank­ings, and is involved in applied research projects in busi­ness, eco­nom­ics and social sci­ences, admin­is­tra­tion, engi­neer­ing and law. Com­mit­ment to an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary approach sup­ports cross-depart­men­tal coop­er­a­tion for the achieve­ment of joint research goals. HWR is inter­na­tion­al in its approach and has over 170 active part­ner­ships with oth­er HEI on near­ly every con­ti­nent. More than half of the 40 stu­dents enrolled in the Mas­ter’s pro­gramme Inter­na­tion­al Eco­nom­ics are from out­side the EU and are among the best stu­dents from around the world. HWR will bring to the EPOG+ its exper­tise on the link between growth and income dis­tri­b­u­tion, inter­na­tion­al eco­nom­ics, finance and devel­op­ment, inter­na­tion­al eco­nom­ic poli­cies and governance.


    The Vien­na Uni­ver­si­ty of Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness (WU) is the EU’s largest edu­ca­tion­al insti­tu­tion for busi­ness and eco­nom­ics, busi­ness law, and social sci­ences. It is ranked 51–100 in QS World Uni­ver­si­ty Rank­ing by Sub­ject in Busi­ness & Man­age­ment. WU’s triple accred­i­ta­tion by EQUIS, AACSB, and AMBA – the three fore­most inter­na­tion­al accred­i­ta­tions for busi­ness and eco­nom­ics uni­ver­si­ties – is a tes­ti­mo­ni­al of WU’s high qual­i­ty stan­dards. WU’s researchers work on impor­tant eco­nom­ic, socioe­co­nom­ic, eco­log­i­cal, and cul­tur­al ques­tions. WU sub­scribes to an impact-ori­ent­ed research cul­ture, as expressed in its mis­sion state­ment, which empha­sizes future-ori­ent­ed and sus­tain­able think­ing and act­ing respon­si­bly to help find solu­tions to today’s eco­nom­ic, social, and eco­log­i­cal prob­lems. The Depart­ment of Socio-Eco­nom­ics is high­ly plu­ral­is­tic. WU brings to EPOG+ its skills in the eco­nom­ics and inter­dis­ci­pli­nary per­spec­tives on the eco­log­i­cal transition.
