We thank our sponsors for their generous support.

Founding sponsor




The ENGIE Foundation is a historical sponsor of the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle. Indeed, the Foundation has supported various projects on the global scale of the Muséum for more than 15 years, such as the restoration of the greenhouses of the Jardin des Plantes, the participative science program Vigie Nature, or the mobile application of the Menagerie.

Continuing its commitment to the institution, the ENGIE Foundation joined the reopening of the Musée de l'Homme in the context of COP 21, illustrating its desire to limit the impact of the climate while reaffirming the social responsibility of the ENGIE Group. By supporting the Musée de l'Homme, the Foundation wished to contribute to the Muséum's research mission with the creation of the Balcon des Sciences, a space dedicated to current research and innovation, and with the creation of the Prix de la Fondation ENGIE – Talents de la recherche au Musée de l’Homme.

This Prize, allocated every year since 2018 and dedicated to the Muséum's researchers, provides an annual grant to researchers working on themes related to the Musée de l’Homme. The objective of this call for projects is to encourage innovative interdisciplinary work and a collaborative research dynamic around the relationships that past and present societies have with their environment. The theme of climate change is, in particular, promoted by this Prize.

The ENGIE 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.

About Engie

ENGIE places responsible growth at the very heart of its business (electricity, natural gas, energy-related services), to rise to the key challenges of the energy transition toward a low-carbon economy: access to sustainable energy, mitigating and adapting to climate change, secured energy supply and intelligent use of resources.

The Group is finding innovative solutions that work for the residential sector, cities and the corporate world, by relying on its expertise in four key sectors: renewable energies, energy efficiency, liquefied natural gas and digital technologies.

Intermarché, exclusive sponsor of the exhibition I Eat, Therefore I Am (Je mange donc je suis) and the Banquets of the exhibition

Intermarché is the only retailer to manufacture its branded products directly in its own factories, the 62 production units of Agromousquetaires, France's 4th largest agri-food operator. This unique "Producers & Traders" model allows the company to commit to better eating throughout the value chain, from farm to fork, from its 20,000 direct agricultural partners (producers, breeders, fishermen) to the customers of its 1,800 sales outlets in France.

Intermarché, which is the exclusive sponsor of the exhibition, has different ambitions : the group wants to build more responsible and sustainable agricultural sectors in constant dialogue with all stakeholders (inter-professions, food industry representatives, scientific experts and NGOs), to actively contribute to changes in agricultural practices in order to build an offer in line with environmental and societal expectations - which preserves the purchasing power of as many people as possible. Then, it also wants to give each consumer easy access to "better eating" and to support the economic dynamics of the territories...
