Airbus Defence and Space

Airbus Defence and Space is proud to support the Joussot-Dubien award as a demonstration that the international scientific and technologic exchanges are key elements for innovations and breakthroughs for future industrial applications. Airbus Defence and Space is investing in a long term view with top scientific teams and high level education schools such as ENSCBP to prepare future engineers for Defence and Space industry challenges. Airbus Defence and Space, an Airbus Group company, with more than 40,000 employees is Number 1 in Europe in Defence industry and Number 2 Worldwide in Space industry. World leader in innovation, Airbus Defence and Space is investing yearly 3 B€ in Research & Development.


This award has been created to honor the life of Professor Jacques Joussot-Dubien (1928-2009), director of ENSCBP from 1982 to 1986 in recognition of his very important impact on the future development of the graduate school as well as his actions in favor of international scientific exchanges. He was not only the key figure in establishing a graduate school closely connecting Chemistry and Physics, but also an outstanding scientist with the highest national and international recognition especially in the field of photochemistry. Having himself performed a large part of his studies abroad (Bachelor of Science in Chemistry at Swarthmore College, Pennsylvania in 1949, followed later by a post-doc at the Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute, New York) he was always very open for hosting foreign students either at the graduate school or in his research laboratory. It is therefore more than natural that this award carries his name and will in this way contribute to keep alive the memory of an exceptional person.
