I am pleased to share with you the first edition of the review launched by the Institut Polytechnique de Paris: Polytechnique Insights.
Drawing its strength from two centuries of expertise in science and technology stemming from its 5 founding Schools (École Polytechnique, ENSTA Paris, ENSAE Paris, Telecom Paris, and Telecom SudParis), the Institut Polytechnique de Paris trains the most brilliant and innovative minds to help them become agents of change and responsible leaders. Our training programs equip them with in-depth scientific knowledge, in particular thanks to a privileged access to world-class infrastructures and a dynamic research ecosystem. Polytechnique Insights is in line with this scientific training of excellence and embodies the huge potential of our research to help foster innovation. I am happy to begin 2021 with the launch of this new review, which represents our strong desire to highlight the admirable work of our teachers and researchers, alongside other stakeholders of our ecosystem including alumni, research and industrial partners.
Polytechnique Insights aspires to have a role in expanding IP Paris outreach in France and worldwide, in order to position ourselves as a major academic and research institution with a strong socio-economic impact. This online review contributes to the initiatives that will allow our country to become a key player in scientific progress and societal well-being. Furthermore, it stands out for its rigor, tone neutrality and exclusion of any form of ideologies.

This first issue helps us immerse ourselves in essential subjects, such as the ongoing health crisis, personalized medicine, the necessary decarbonation of the aviation industry or bioplastics. This edition is testament to the richness of our research, guided by scientific integrity, interdisciplinarity, and the general interest of all.
I hope that the scientific advances presented in this first issue of Polytechnique Insights will help fuel your intellectual curiosity and your taste for innovation.
On this occasion, I would like to celebrate our dynamic ecosystem and thank the teams who worked on the launch of the review throughout the past year, the Editorial Committee and the teachers and researchers, as well as the corporate sponsors that show us their trust by supporting Polytechnique Insights. Many stakeholders were essential to the completion of this new, ambitious project, one that can be added to the list of the achievements by the Institut Polytechnique de Paris.
