Carnot Institutes: a new labelling wave due shortly
The third wave of Carnot Institute labelling is to be launched in 2016. In 2013, Arnaud Montebourg – who was then French Minister for Productive Recovery – and Geneviève Fioraso, currently Secretary of State for Higher Education and Research, announced the setting up of a commission tasked with proposing developments to the system. The aim was to give new impetus to the institutes to enable them to make a "decisive" contribution to the "recovery of the country". This commission, baptised the "Carnot 3.0 Commission", submitted its recommendations to the Secretary of State on 21st January 2015.
