Three good reasons to join IPP

Social benefit and impact at the heart of IPP’s work

The IPP has set itself the (lofty!) goal of improving the way our democracy works by providing policy-makers and the general public with independent analyses and evaluations based on the latest research findings in economics.

The members of the IPP are committed to producing methodologically rigorous and transparent studies, but also to sharing and defending them in front of politicians, the press and the general public.

A stimulating environment

The heads of department, who directly supervise the IPP’s economists, are all researchers who are recognised in their field, publish in peer-reviewed journals and regularly speak at international conferences.

> Discover the permanent team

In addition to daily interaction with the permanent team, IPP members have easy access to the various seminars and conferences organized every week at PSE or GENES.

A dynamic and pleasant working environment

As a human-sized organisation (35 permanent members of staff), the IPP attaches great importance to cultivating a certain conviviality, encouraging direct and informal exchanges between its members, and developing autonomy and initiative of everyone, juniors and seniors alike.
