TUCK FOUNDATION

TUCK FOUNDATION

The Tuck Foundation is a non-profit foundation created in 1990 with the aim of "developing international and, in particular, Franco-American cooperation in the fields of education and research in the fields of hydrocarbons, petrochemistry, engines, related activities and their effects on the environment".

The foundation acts by providing assistance to students and young researchers, financing research, laboratories, equipment and teaching tools, hosting foreign professors in France, chairs at the École nationale supérieure du pétrole et des moteurs (ENSPM, now IFP School), organizing international seminars and symposia and producing publications. It enables the French Petroleum Institute to raise funds for its activities by benefiting from the patronage tax regime.
