iMagination Week is currently in its fifth edition at ESSEC’s main campus in Cergy, Paris. “Our objective is to culturally enrich the students by taking them out of their usual work habit and exposing them to experts from various disciplines like life sciences, future studies, art, technology, and sciences, among others. It is also to invite the students to envision the future and develop their creative minds by stimulating their imagination and team work capabilities.” explains Prof. Xavier Pavie, Director of the iMagination Center at ESSEC.
