Creation of the FESIC network
The FESIC organisation was created in 1969 by Norbert SÉGARD – renowned scientist and former Minister of Foreign Trade, Postal Services and Telecommunications in the 70’s who grew up in the North of France – alongside a group of directors of engineering “Grandes Ecoles”. As soon as it was created, FESIC members wanted to “underline FESIC’s originality by involving a real part of humanism in the course trainings and making a difference in the way courses were managed”. This is how the first network of higher education institutions saw the light in France.
The federation is today formed by highly reputables and non profitables institutions with humanist traditions, which benefit from great development dynamics. It is a network united around the concepts of excellence, ethics and service of the society.
