The Women & Science Chair at Paris-Dauphine University, created in 2019 with the support of the L'Oréal Foundation, Generali, La Poste and Talan, aims to mobilize and develop multidisciplinary approaches to analyze the determinants and the impact of the low presence of women in scientific studies and careers.
The Women & Science Chair aims to develop and disseminate works, research and knowledge, at national and international level, on girls and women in scientific fields, studies and professions, the term "scientific" refers to exact he natural sciences, with the purpose to:
Scientific Director: Elyès Jouini, professor, University Paris-Dauphine, PSL
Partners: Fondation l’Oréal, Generali, La Poste and Talan
The Governance and Regulation Chair is devoted to regulatory systems. The chair's goal is to contribute to developing more efficient regulatory frameworks that better account for the economic community's needs and constraints, public policy objectives, and user interests, and to elaborating the legal tools necessary to ensure that the systems are coherent and secure.
The Chair engages in three types of initiative:
Scientific Director: Eric Brousseau
French public and government partners: Conseil d’État, Conseil Général de l'économie, Cour des comptes
Professional Partners: De Pardieu Brocas Maffei, Frontier, Ylios
The Finance and Sustainable Development Chair works to build a body of knowledge on topics related to Sustainable Development and Finance through transversal and cross-disciplinary research. The Chair's ambition is to establish itself as an advisory body for economic and political policy-makers and to encourage them to make investment decisions that reflect their societal priorities.
The Chair's research projects can be divided into five categories:
Coordinators: Jean-Michel Lasry and Pierre-Louis Lions
Partners: Crédit Agricole CIB et EDF
The Climate Economics Chair focuses on applied research and on encouraging innovative teaching methods in the field of Climate Economics. The Chair develops research initiatives in collaboration with its corporate and academic partners on a variety of topics from carbon pricing and carbon markets to investment strategy, law, regulation and mobility.
The Chair coordinates a team of researchers who belong to an international network in the field and who carry out their research in collaboration with carbon market professionals and policy-makers.
The Climate Economics Chair coordinates five thematic research initiatives spanning all aspects of Climate Economics:
The Chair benefits from the active support and participation of numerous corporate partners.
Scientific Directors: Christian de Perthuis and Pierre-André Jouvet
Corporate Partners: CDC Climat, CSTB, Amundi, Solvay, GDF Suez, HSBC, Veolia, Michelin, EDF, Total, Astrium, InVivo, and Proléa
The Health Care Chair is a joint Université Paris Dauphine – ENSAE initiative. The Chair has three main objectives:
The Chair organizes its research initiatives around five main areas:

The Center for Energy Financing, is a Fondation IEF research initiative. Its purpose is to host university researchers from all horizons who wish to work together with research engineers from EDF's Research & Development department on joint projects involving mathematical economics and quantitative finance applied to long term energy financing.
The initiative functions within the framework of the Finance and Sustainable Development Laboratory of Excellence (LABEX) under the aegis of the Institut Louis Bachelier.
The research initiative currently covers two main themes:

Integration of vegetable oil markets (rapeseed, sunflower, palm, soybean), the petroleum market and foreign exchange markets based on price and volume data.
Agriculture is one of the most risky of economic sectors. Agronomic and meteorological risks are compounded by market risks. Volumes and prices vary considerably, often unexpectedly, and sometimes in a lasting way. Farmers are able to mitigate these risks:
The commercial and financial choices are mainly driven by uncertainties regarding outlets and prices.
On the statistical side: better knowledge of the interactions between commodities (movements and co-movements, graph theory), more specific new empirical work on oilseeds, and the interaction with foreign exchange markets and carbon prices.
On the modelling side: price formation, risk management methods in an unstable and relatively illiquid environment, and the value of risk measures.
Scientifics Directors: Delphine Lautier et Bertrand Villeneuve
Academic partner: Université Paris-Dauphine
The Research Initiative is hosted by the Europlace Institute of Finance Foundation (IEF).
The Research Initiative benefits from the scientific sponsorship of the Finance and Sustainable Development Chair.
