Yann Algan is leaving his position as Dean of the EAP to take up the position of Associate Dean of the HEC Pre-Experience Program and to continue his research on trust and cooperation in organizations. He will be on secondment from Sciences Po starting at the beginning of the 2021 academic year.
Yann Algan arrived at Sciences Po in 2008 and has participated in many of Sciences Po’s collective adventures, including the launch of the economics department, the renewal of the economics course taught to first-year students at the Collège universitaire, the creation of chairs and numerous public and private partnerships, and of course the opening of the School of Public Affairs in 2015.
For the life of institutions and researchers alike, renewal is an important step. After six exciting years as Dean of EAP, it is good to begin a new cycle that will, among other things, bring in new ideas. EAP is on very solid footing, especially with Anne-Solenne de Roux, who will be acting as interim director.
Information about Yann Algan’s position at HEC and the Pre-Experience Program is forthcoming on this site.
