Who is involved in the institutional project?
The institutional project belongs, first and foremost, to employees. They are the ones who will be consulted and empowered to examine situations and propose solutions.
It is coordinated by two project leaders, François Cavalier and Stéphane Auzanneau, and a special adviser, Halimatou Nimaga, supported by three consultants.
What is the timetable?
The institutional project includes three phases.
6 November 2009 – 19 February 2010: exploratory phase. This means, first, benchmarking (i.e. comparing our mode of operation with that of other institututions of higher education, notably outside France), but also – and even more important – collecting information within Sciences Po, through discussions, "café exchange sessions", face-to-face interviews, an ideas box, etc.
Ten strong messages emerged from this phase:
19 February 2010 – 8 July 2010: production phase. This means producing a document detailing the actions to be implemented looking to 2015.
After 8 July 2010: dissemination phase. Pass on and share the proposed solutions to the different comments and suggestions made.
