Governance - ESAIP


Managed by a 1901 non-profit association, ESAIP is supported by several Councils and Commissions, each with its own scope of responsibilities. They are composed of members from various academic, institutional and professional backgrounds.

This guarantees that ESAIP is anchored in its territories and has a thorough knowledge of the issues and developments in the professions and sectors for which we train our students.
