The objective of this Transversal Program is to boost the profile of the French academic establishment in the field of green and sustainable finance, to mutualize the research effort among its institutions while expanding its financial resources and to make sure that the most critical research issues driven by these new emerging challenges are properly addressed, in coordination among the institutions and with the financial industry, and communicated to a large audience. The Transerval Programme also aims to back up and inspire the regulatory bodies as opposed to influencing them. Such objectives require narrowing the gaps between programs, research agendas and analytical methods as well as enhancing skills to reach practitioners in order to allow an impact on their processes, their governance as well as financial tools and instruments.
