Our values

“Your task is not to foresee the future, but to enable it.” (Antoine de Saint Exupéry, Citadelle)

IRT Saint Exupéry is founded upon the personal values of a well-known pioneer pilot in Airmail (Aéropostale), Antoine de Saint Exupéry, who was a writer, an artist, a humanist and an engineer (10 patents).
  • Freedom to create
    The freedom to exchange, to try, to make mistakes, & to try again. To give our employees the opportunity to “get out of the box”, to be a source of ideas, to experiment and to show curiosity, just as Antoine de Saint Exupéry did.
  • Pioneer Spirit
    The pioneer spirit is the DNA of IRT Saint Exupéry. We define ourselves as explorers, curious and open to the world, serving tomorrow’s technologies, inspired by the values of Antoine de Saint Exupéry, author, artist, humanist and engineer.
  • Passion for technology
    We all share the same goal: to have a virtuous impact on tomorrow by paving the way for disruptive technologies and accelerating the transfer of these technologies to industry. That is our commitment.
  • Richness of diversity
    We created an IRT where people from different backgrounds come together, a unique place for exchange and collaboration that brings together academics, industrials, researchers, engineers and PhD student around our values. The diversity of cultures and backgrounds makes the IRT Saint Exupéry a catalyst of skills in the service of innovation.
