Support us

Supporting the Climate Economics Chair means contributing to the financing of academic research dealing with the links between climate change and functioning of economic systems.

Thanks to your support, the Climate Economics Chair is able to develop and internationalize its research programs! Many types of financial support exist….

 

 

Patronage

  • How much?

The Foundation Europlace Institute of Finance (EIF), which ensures the administrative and financial management of the Climate Economics Chair, admits all contributions exceeding 20 K€.

This means a net charge of 8 K€ for the firm, as all contributions in cash are eligible for a 60% tax relief as part of corporate patronage (Article 238bis of the General Tax Code).

  • How?

A firm becomes a patron of the Climate Economics Chair (CEC) by signing a Patronage Convention with the EIF Foundation.

This convention outlines the commitments of both sides:

  • on the patron’s side : to pay the amount of X € to the EIF with a bank transfer ;
  • on the EIF Foundation’ side: to assign all perceived amounts to the CEC’s budget, and to send a receipt to the firm so that the latter can benefit from fiscal measures contained in article 238bis of the General Tax Code.
  • How will your donation be used?

Any amount paid by a patron of the Climate Economics Chair and collected by the Foundation will be assigned to the CEC’s budget.

The CEC will assign your contribution in accordance with its own priorities. Its development is in fact based on your trust in terms of allocation of resources.

Each patron will receive detailed information on the research activity development during the year following its contribution.

 

Financing a research internship

Interested in a short-term research project which theme is in line with one of our three Research Programs, a firm can fund a research internship.

In this case, the trainee shares his time between the enterprise and the Chair, and benefits from a two-sided supervision (with a tutor within the enterprise, and another at the Chair).

 

Financing a CIFRE thesis

Via the CIFRE scheme (French Ministry of Research Training in Industry Convention), a firm can hire a young graduated student to work on a given research project, while receiving an annual donation of 14 K€ by the ANRT (the French Association of Research and Technology).

In this case, the student is enrolled in a doctoral program, and his research work is supervised by a laboratory of research, partner of the Chair (CGEMP, Economic, and so on).

A cooperation contract between the firm and the laboratory outlines both the conditions under which researches are made and the ownership clauses related to results obtained by the PhD student.

 

Financing a research agreement

To fund a research project, a firm can also sign a research agreement with a research laboratory partner of the Chair (CGEMP, EconomiX, and so on).

The university, to which the laboratory is attached (UPOND, Paris Dauphine University, and so on.), hires in this case a PhD Student (over three years) or a postdoctoral Student (over one year) in order to conduct this project, which will be academically supervised by the laboratory and the Chair.

 

Partner in a Research Program

Interested in one of our research themes, a firm can support the related Research Program among the following ones:

  • CO2 price and low-carbon innovation
  • Agriculture and forestry
  • Energy transitions

A three-year partnership is signed by the firm, Paris Dauphine University and the Foundation Europlace Institute of Finance (EIF) which ensures the administrative and financial management of the Climate Economics Chair. This convention outlines the organizational arrangements, notably :

  • The composition of the Steering Committee which takes place at least once a year in the presence of a representative of each industrial partner, and of the scientific direction of the Chair and with representatives of Paris Dauphine University and of EIF, whose purpose is to validate work plans and related budget.
  • Organization of regular exchanges between partners in the Research Program (project supervision, attendance at seminars, and so on)
  • A privileged access to the publications of the members of the Research Program

This type of financial support is eligible for a 60% tax relief as part of support for public research.

 

Main Partner

Interested in several research themes among ours, a firm can support all our Research Programs, becoming a main Partner of the Chair.

A five-year partnership convention is signed by the firm, Paris Dauphine University and the Foundation Europlace Institute of Finance (EIF) which ensures the administrative and financial management of the Climate Economics Chair. This convention outlines the organizational arrangements, notably:

  • The composition of the CEC’s Steering Committee, chaired by the climatologist Jean Jouzel, Vice-Chairman of the IPCC. This Committee meets the representatives of CEC’s main Partners, of Paris Dauphine University and of EIF, twice a year, in order to define future development priorities (research programs steering based on the Scientific Committee’s opinion, organization of events, use of CEC’s means, and so on).
  • The participation of all main CEC’s Partners in the Steering Committees of each Research Program.
  • Organization of regular exchanges between the Parties (project supervision, attendance at seminars, and so on)
  • A privileged access to the CEC’s publications.

This type of financial support is eligible for a 60% tax relief as part of support for public research.
