Faithful to its commitment to territorial anchoring and openness to the city, enshrined in its statutes, aivancity forges partnerships to serve the territory, its inhabitants, its entrepreneurial fabric and its learning community.
COOPERATIVE TIES FOR TERRITORIAL RESPONSIBILITY
As a stakeholder in the campus installation project from the outset, the City of Cachan has become an institutional partner of aivancity, with the ambition of anchoring the school in its territory.
Also, in order to make aivancity students aware of their role as citizens and their responsibilities, and to contribute to the dynamism of the associative space of Cachan, aivancity and the City of Cachan are working on the setting up of 6-month voluntary citizen missions within the city's associations for all the students of the school.
The City and the school are alsoconsidering the possibility of offering an aivancity studentcard open to City services, such as access to sports facilities, cultural spaces and events, allowingstudents to enrichtheiracademicexperiencethrough cultural, sports, citizenship and Cachaneseactivities, thusallowing, especially for international students, a betterintegrationinto French culture.
The City will contribute to the dissemination and promotion of the IA Clinic'soffer , whichwilloffer a free IA and data projectanalysis service, piloted by aivancity students and supervised by professorsfrom the school, to SMEs, VSEs, associations or non-profit organizations.
The CCI Val-de-Marne, represented by itspresident, Gérard Delmas, has alsosigned a partnership with aivancity, in the service of the economic fabric of the department.

A schoolwith a mission, aivancity is also committed to promot ing diversity and social inclusion, in particular by encouraging the democratization of access to higher education.
PARTNERSHIP-BASED OFFERS PROMOTING ACCESS TO EDUCATION
This iswhy, in addition to setting up the school'sendowmentfund, aivancity is able to offerpreferential offers to its students, thanks to the signature of three new partnerships with the Caisse d'Epargne Ile-de-France, the Crédit Mutuel Ile-de-France and the LCL.
Aivancity students will thus be able to benefit from a student loan of 60 K€ with a 0.8% interest rate for a period of 12 to 120 months, a consumer loan of up to 1000€, at 0% interest, without application fees, for a period of 12 to 36 months, a bundled offer of services at 1€/year for 6 years, a dedicated advisor and online platform, and an international offer.
Corner stones of the school's statutes, the territorial anchoring and the opening to the city resonate today in a concrete way. With the financial support of the Caisse d'Epargne Ile-de-France, Crédit Mutuel Ile-de-France and LCL, aivancity Paris-Cachan is developing close ties with its environment and contributes to the wealth of activities in the region.
