et Métiers ParisTech
, the largest engineering school in France,
today announced the signature of a Memorandum of Understanding to
leverage their collaboration in educating engineers for the “Industry of
the Future,” the French government’s strategic push for industrial
modernization, and to train professionals in implementing this

Under the MoU, the two partners have embarked on a range of training and
learning initiatives leveraging Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE
platform, to accelerate the adoption of new industry practices, with a
specific focus on small and midsized enterprises.

Small and midsized enterprises play an integral role in the
transformation of industry currently underway, where new categories of
industrial firms are emerging to create new solutions for new customers.
A key success factor in this Industry Renaissance is the ability to
empower a workforce with knowledge and know-how for implementing new
innovation methods. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform integrates the digital
technologies and capabilities to accelerate this.

As part of the joint plan, Arts et Métiers ParisTech will provide 6,000
members of its ecosystem with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to connect users
having various roles, and to support collaborative, multidisciplinary

Professional training co-designed by Arts et Métiers ParisTech and
Dassault Systèmes will offer these businesses an array of practical
tools to spur innovation, with a digital innovation platform used by
industries worldwide, and roll out best practices for the Industry of
the Future.

The two partners will set up a center of expertise to bring together the
knowledge and skills associated with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, working
closely with Arts et Métiers ParisTech’s facilities in France and
internationally. This center will provide training and validate new
practices for companies, especially small and midsized ones, but also
for academic institutions wishing to enrich and expand their course

In addition, a specific program has been set up for small and midsized
businesses employing Arts et Métiers ParisTech students to explore and
validate Industry of the Future practices as part of their internships.

“We want to give our students the technical and soft skills they need to
make the best decisions for their future employers,” said Laurent
Champaney, President, Arts et Métiers ParisTech. “The 3DEXPERIENCE
platform enables this convergence of expertise across disciplines, and
we’re keen to share it with businesses and other academic institutions.”

“This agreement with Arts et Métiers ParisTech is a milestone in
preparing the workforce of the future as part of the Industry
Renaissance,” said Valérie Ferret, Vice President Learning Experience,
Dassault Systèmes. “Many employers will gain the expertise they need to
seize the opportunities this transformation will bring. The 3DEXPERIENCE
platform enables companies of all sizes as well as educational leaders
to prepare for this fundamental evolution of business, society and
