Reindustrialisation: launch of the 'Yes to Industry' Prize

Start
In a context of industrial decline, the Institut de la réindustrialisation is creating the first "Yes to Industry" prize in partnership with the AEF in order to to put forward concrete projects that have enabled an industrial boom, implemented by learners within a company.
 
Created in January 2015 by the Metallurgical Industries Group, Syntec Ingénierie and two engineering schools, the ETH and the Cesi, the Reindustrialization Institute aims to become a centre for the creation and dissemination of knowledge and expertise, and aims to be a source of proposals by submitting themes related to the revitalisation of territories, while raising awareness of these issues among students, apprentices, the general public and tomorrow's stakeholders. It also and above all aims to analyse the phenomena linked to relocation and relocations, which have never been the subject of precise studies. Its founding members are the GIM, Groupe des Industries Métallurgiques, Syntec Ingénierie, the largest federation of engineering professionals and two engineering schools, the EPF and CESI. 
 
Because industrial decline in France and its territories is not inevitable and because effective levers have been identified to curb this phenomenon, the Institut de la réindustrialisation has the task of detecting good practices and attracting young people, particularly women, to careers in industry.
"Let's forget our whims of a society without factories! Deindustrialization, like the worst, is never safe! » said strategy advisor François Chaillou in an interview with the Echoes chronicle in 2015. 
For example, Bpifrance innovates to support reindustrialization in France by launching a fund to support ambitious industrial projects, even though we know that the investment needed to reindustrialize our countries is hampered not by low savings, but by the fact that the latter are not very interested in risky investments.
 
 

The creation of the "Yes to Industry" Prize, in line with the objectives of the Institute and in partnership with the AEF Group, aims to highlight concrete projects.
The "Yes to Industry" prize is open to students registered in 2014/2015 for one of the following training courses in France: 
- University cycle (Master 1, Master 2, Doctorate) 
- Engineering or Management Schools (Under student status, apprenticeship or professionalization contract) 
- Specialized Master of the Conférence des Grandes Ecoles 
 
The application is individual. It is to be deposited with Gwénaël Guillemot. (gguillemot[at]institutreindus.fr) by sending the registration form by e-mail.
In addition to this registration form and according to the attached rules, the candidate must send :
- A 4-page summary presenting the project with its context, issues, objectives and results obtained or envisaged.
- The copy of the registration to the training cycle for the year 2014/2015
- A letter from the company in which the project took place stating the company's agreement
 
Deadline for sending the application: Friday 12 February 2016 (by e-mail or by post, date as postmark).

 
The award ceremony will take place on Thursday 24 March 2016 at a ceremony in the context of RUE 2016, the higher education and research exhibition, which will take place on 24 and 25 March 2016 at the Palais des Congrès in Paris.
The winners will be rewarded with three prizes: 
- 1st prize of 2500 euros 
- 2nd prize endowed with 1500 euros 
- 3rd prize of 1000 euros 
The awards will be presented by personalities from the industrial world.
 
Gwénaël GUILLEMOT, head of the CESI industry department underlines : "Successes are appearing in our territories. Large groups are able to compete on a global scale. Smaller industrial companies innovate, export and become leaders in their activity. Jobs are being created... restoring interest in French industry is the challenge that the Institut de la réindustrialisation has set itself. 
 
The four founders of the Institut de la réindustrialisation firmly believe not only in maintaining but also in developing French industrial activity. But how Reindustrialize France, rehabilitate business and encourage innovation? How can higher education be turned into a real preparation for the professions? What energy strategy should be adopted as part of responsible development and safety management? How can we restore the image of science and technology and make related activities attractive? These are all decisive issues for the future of France, and an initiative such as the Institut de l'Industrialisation is well aware of them.
