The G&G Pélisson Foundation for Institut Paul Bocuse was created in 2015 under the patronage of the Fondation de France. The Foundation’s mission is to support and help guide the development of our school and therefore continue contributing to the influence of French know-how across the globe.
The G&G Pélisson Foundation: an ally for the future of the school
Created through the impetus given by Gérard Pélisson, our Foundation has fixed itself 4 simple, yet ambitious objectives in agreement with the Institut Paul Bocuse and with the support of our alumni:
- Make it possible for all to study at Institut Paul Bocuse.
As a way of contributing to the internationalisation of the Institute and its widening participation policy, each year the Foundation awards bursaries and scholarships and contributes to the funding of doctoral students’ studies.
- Develop the installations of the Institute.
Recognised as among the best hospitality, foodservice and culinary arts management schools, Institut Paul Bocuse now aims to become one of the leading institutions in the world. We have therefore begun a new phase in our development with the extension and modernisation of our campus in Lyon.
- Support research and innovative educational projects, in particular by developing creative learning spaces, by deploying tools that encourage collaborative teaching and by financing projects of the Center for Food and Hospitality Research at Institut Paul Bocuse.
- Strengthen the influence of our school in France and overseas.
The Foundation endeavours to promote worldwide the renowned French know-how, cultural heritage and hospitality developed at Institut Paul Bocuse ever since its creation.
Alumni, students, parents and friends of Institut Paul Bocuse – it’s thanks to you that we are able to realise our dreams and ambitions!
