MATRICE is a program of innovation, training and production that brings together different schools, universities, companies and institutions around specific, ambitious issues that draw the intellectual and professional future of a sector.


MATRICE confronts sciences (human) and technologies, research and companies, students and professionals ... to seal new alliances within a single device that goes from the generation of ideas to the concrete production of solutions / tools that can give rise to an economic adventure ... whatever it is.


MATRICE is the culmination of a simple observation:

We are currently experiencing the transition from the industrial age to the digital era. All sectors are affected by this transition.

However, the human remains the first player in this digitalization. The technological revolution calls for a new anthropology.


MATRICE is both a school where the worlds confront and unite and an incubator welcoming entrepreneurs who innovate and produce for the world of tomorrow.
