Partnership with the French Education System
At the Educatec tradeshow (held in Paris from November 21 to 24, 2001), France’s leading education oriented exhibition, Schneider Electric and the Ministry of National Education signed a master agreement.
> The purpose was to strengthen their cooperation and provide a reference framework for their 40-year partnership in the areas of industrial control & automation and electrical distribution. The primary goal is to dynamize this partnership in the French provinces. “This agreement is not the culmination of our relations, but a promise of new developments,” declared Daniel Becquet, in charge of ministerial relations at Schneider Electric. “Young people need corporations. The goal is to anticipate, plan and take joint action for their future.”
The partners thus plan to further extend and accelerate the experiments and innovations carried out as part of regional and academic agreements, aimed at developing the electrical engineering professions and supporting them through initial and on-going professional training.
