The purpose of the Chair in Mindfulness, Well-Being and Economic Peace is to develop knowledge and teaching in the areas previously defined.

The Chair mainly operates thanks to donations that are granted over a three-year period by financial partners. These donations are referred to the Foundation for the Development of Man and Society (FDHS) under the aegis of the Fondation de France. Then the latter sends a tax receipt to the donor who benefits from a 60% tax reduction in corporate income tax.

Projects are defined in collaboration with donors by a scientific and professional board of members representing the Chair and its donors. Research work is carried out in fields of general interest.

Donors can also benefit from items listed on the Why donate page of this website.

Partners in this Research Chair will enjoy the benefits of a wealth of conclusions resulting from discussions with researchers in transversal exchanges of topics.

On a secondary level, and only exceptionally, an organization may contract directly with the Chair for its own operational questions. In this case, the partner will not go via the Foundation, nor receive a tax receipt, but will benefit directly from the results of the research.

The Chair is supported by the Fondation pour le Développement de l'Homme et de la Société under the aegis of the Fondation de France.

Why donate

 Development of a high level of expertise

When participating in research, donors support the development of a high level of expertise on issues of breach, innovation and research in the subject area. The Chair’s research work gives its partners the answers to key questions, whether of a general or specific interest, through concerted work that contributes to a subtle understanding of human issues in the economy. Based on the questions raised the researchers, as experts in reconciling different points of view, aim to propose answers relevant to current issues in the workplace.

Development and production of knowledge and methods

By participating in the Chair, donors contribute to the development and production of knowledge and methods which are based on research work. They benefit from the progress in the research work and from the tools that are developed1. The initial questions and the results of the research play a part in the evolution of dynamics and in the development policy of organizations.

Value creation

In associating research, teaching and partners, the Chair participates in the growth of a competitive relationship centered on a significant change in the meaning of work and collaboration. It leads to a differentiated market strategy, involving the partner as an innovator recognized for his ability to restore new meaning to human work and become a key player in the future.

Enhancement of the company's commitment to major societal issues

Donors through their participation become a reference concerning issues of managerial developments. As members of the Chair’s project, they participate actively in public affairs, becoming involved in matters that have societal implications. Their commitment turns them into agents of change and facilitators of public debate.

Belonging to a community of practice and learning

In today's economic world, many companies and organizations already play a significant role with regard to the values and practices that our Chair promotes and studies. However, these companies and organizations are often isolated and cannot share their practices or learn from others. The Chair aims to play a unifying role and create a community of practice that integrates learning within a social and human perspective. The Chair is a venture for mutual engagement, through meetings, time-sharing, open working groups and through the creation of a common network, helping all participants to learn and share knowledge and expertise.

Participation in training for top managers

By participating in the Chair, a donor contributes to the development of training for top managers who are able to understand human and economic issues in the work environment. The donor’s involvement gives him access to a recruitment pool of future managers whose training has made them aware of the healthy and efficient management of the men and women who make up a company’s staff.

National and international outreach: media, industry partners and the public

The Chair’s contribution to cooperation, its presence in the field of science and mass-media interventions, as well as its international publications, multiply the opportunities for the development of a corporate partner’s brand image.
