CarMa Chair is pleased to support Emma Jagu and CentraleSupélec at COP26


In 2021, the CarMa IFP School Chair supported a delegation at COP26 through PhD student Emma Jagu where CentraleSupélec sent a delegation to the COP for the first time this year following a call for projects from the CentraleSupélec Foundation and the school's Sustainable Development referent Pascal DA COSTA. The support from the CarMa Chair, as well as that of the Futures Cities Lab Chair, were instrumental to the success of the delegation’s work.

The delegation consisted of 3 second year students, 3 PhD students (including Emma Jagu) and one lecturer. They had three main objectives:

  1. To allow students, researchers and staff of the university to discover what happens at COP. The delegation published daily "COP Points" and "Info Points" to inform on Glasgow COP26.    
  2. To participate in civil society actions as observers at the COP. For example, one student participated in a working group on indigenous peoples' rights with YOUNGO (
  3. To enrich academic research perspectives with a global view of climate policy. One PhD student was able to testify on how the sustainable mobility transition was addressed at COP26 (
