iMagination Week: an edition "beyond frontiers" for the 10th anniversary of the pedagogical experience

The students of the Grande Ecole will be attending a special edition of iMagination Week on the Cergy campus, from January 3 to 7, 2022. This unique pedagogical experience of ESSEC, dedicated to imagination, transdisciplinarity and responsible innovation, will celebrate its tenth anniversary this year. The theme of this year's event, "Beyond frontiers: 2012-2032: 20 years of iMagination", will allow us to look back on the past decade, but also to consider the next 10 years.

"iMagination Week aims at enriching students culturally by taking them out of their environment, explains Xavier Pavie, ESSEC professor and iMagination Center Director. The iMagination Week confronts students with transdisciplinary experts, instilling a "visionary" spirit. Its objective is to help students become aware of the challenges of the society they are going to build and start questioning their contribution. Also, iWeek aims at helping students develop their critical skills for their life: creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, inquisitive posture. At the end, stimulating their imagination to enhance responsible innovation a better future."
