IFPEN's scientific excellence leads it to offer its scientific expertise to public authorities and industrial players, local authorities and judicial bodies. By making a critical review of the knowledge available on a given topic, this expertise provides decision-makers with the information they require to make the best possible choices.
To ensure it is in a position to effectively respond to requests of this type, IFPEN has set up an internal Expert network. The four Expert Directors are particularly involved in forward thinking processes at IFPEN. The experts provide scientific guidance and support for young researchers, help prepare new programs and respond to institutional requests for expertise.
One of IFP Energies nouvelles's objectives is to equip itself with a formalized range of expert assessment services, based on an expert assessment charter, which can be offered in partnership with other research bodies.
