To keep at the forefront of scientific and technical excellence, as well as to attract emerging talent, Nexans maintains a close relationship with major universities worldwide.cooperations

These relations are based on the competence and most often on the proximity of universities to our major Research Centers.

Cooperation can take several forms, from summer internships to supporting doctoral or post-poctoral work, or participation in major international projects.

All these cooperative links are normally established for the long run, and correspond to a long-term commitment among our partners.
