Logo Engie

Support from the ENGIE Foundation is in line with a partnership forged more than ten years ago with the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle, for the restoration of the Greenhouses. More recently, the partnership is playing a role in the participatory scientific programme “Vigie – nature”.
The ENGIE Foundation, which provides multi-layered support, is making a personal contribution to the Balcon des sciences, a space dedicated to the latest advances in research and innovation. An ENGIE award has been created for the best of research at the Musée de l’Homme, as well as an annual grant for a museum researcher.
This year, the Foundation is playing a role in museum programming for COP21, the UN Conference on Climate Change.
The Foundation lends proud support to foster research, teaming up with Group employees, but also partnering associations who all have the same goal in mind: bringing culture and science to people.

Logo Orange

Partner of the reopening of the Musée de l’Homme, Orange supports the museum by providing expertise in digital technology to promote the sharing of knowledge. As a first step, Orange will provide an innovative tool for families visiting the museum, and will contribute to the design of new educational tools such as Moocs, interactive devices, etc.

Orange, a world leader in telecommunications, aims to bring the benefits of digital technology to the widest possible audience. That is why the company has been forging partnerships over the past years with cultural institutions with a common goal: putting digital technology at the service of culture, a driver of human, economic and social development.

Logo Publicis Conseil

Publicis Activ Paris provides assistance to the Musée de l’Homme in developing the strategy behind the museum’s reopening. This means defining the museum’s position, notably through a fresh visual identity with the creation of a new logo and tagline, “Man is evolving. So is his museum.”
From the start, Publicis has offered advice and support to market leaders. The observation is the same across the board: the world is changing faster than ever.
Publicis’ philosophy, Lead the Change, consists of identifying, understanding and analysing that change in all its forms, to give a head start to the brands it assists throughout the world.


Logo Fondation EDF

The EDF Foundation supports the sensory experience of the Musée de l’Homme.
At the EDF Foundation, social solidarity is paramount. The group strives to promote social inclusion and make a real contribution to helping all people find their place in the world, regardless of social status, age, sex, religion or disability. It is committed to promoting access to knowledge and culture for people everywhere, and regards cultural institutions as gateways to social cohesion.
As such, the Musée de l’Homme has a vital role to play. It is a place to share knowledge, where people are invited to contemplate the human race, its past, and its future. It embraces the diversity and universality of mankind to promote living together in harmony while accepting, and learning from, our differences.
