Head of INSA Toulouse
Didier Marquis appointed President of the INSA Group
In 2010, the Lyon, Toulouse, Rennes, Rouen and Strasbourg schools, which had been operating within the INSA network, formed themselves into the INSA Group to drive their strategy.
Following Alain Storck's second term of office as Head of INSA Lyon and President of the Group, he was succeeded as President by Didier Marquis, the Head of INSA Toulouse.
Eric Maurincomme, the new Head of INSA Lyon and Jean-Louis Billoët, Head of INSA Rouen have been appointed Group Vice-Presidents.
4 business segments have been set up, each with specific assignments
The INSA Group has changed its organization, in line with its new strategies.
- Student recruitment (social diversity, gearing the entrance exam to changes in the baccalaureate, internationalization,…)
- Degree programs and teaching (rhythm, information and communication technology in teaching, skills-based approaches, etc.)
- Employability and relations with partners
- Research and application (sharing good practices, driving the research/training relationship…)
Particular focus will be placed on 2 current topics, the first involving relations with the Moroccan Conference of University Presidents and training engineers in Morocco, and the second the expansion of innovation and entrepreneurship training to help drive SME development.
The organisation :
Didier Marquis (INSA Toulouse), President
Eric Maurincomme (INSA Lyon), Vice-President
Jean-Louis Billoet (INSA Rouen), Vice-President
Marc Renner (INSA Strasbourg), Secretary
M’Hamed Drissi (INSA Rennes), Treasurer
10% of yearly French engineering graduate output comes from the 6 INSAs , while over 78,000 INSA graduate engineers are currently working in France and worldwide.
The 5 institutes have always shared a common vision - a policy of attracting students from a wide variety of backgrounds, a humanist educational model for producing socially-aware engineers, teaching underpinned by cutting-edge research facilities.
The directors are seeking to develop a fresh form of the Grande Ecole model across the INSA Group, based on selective admission but encouraging diversity of background and building up close links with both industry and science research units. In an increasingly competitive environment, the group is also seeking to underpin INSA's international positioning.
The INSA Group sees co-operation between teaching establishments as a key part of its strategy. The 5 original institutes have used the INSA partners scheme to sign cooperation agreements with 2 other French engineering schools, ENSCI Limoges and ENSI Bourges.
