Values and Ambitions

Trust, Commitment, Team Spirit, Self development

Isara has been built for more than 50 years upon deeply human values which move our student-engineers and our collaborators and support our school in its history and development.


Valeurs de ISARA


These values are our ground rules and govern the way we work together on a daily basis.
To make them more concrete and applicable within our organization, they have been broken down into principles of action:


  • Identifying and respecting each other’s responsibilities
  • Sharing information efficiently
  • Having the right to make mistakes & supporting continuous improvement



  • Setting common goals and sharing them
  • Giving ourselves enough time to deliver quality results
  • Experimenting & driving change


Team spirit

  • Listening
  • Encouraging co-development and the sharingof experiences
  • Developing synergies between students and staff
  • Defending the interests of the group over those of the individual



  • Allowing everyone to develop their professional or academic project
  • Setting time aside to stay flexible
  • Recognizing and valuing the work done



To be an engineering Grande Ecole, open to the world, a leading center at the heart of food, farming and environmental issues, creator of ideas and innovation

Fully commited to our values of trust, commitment, team spirit and self-development, we have the ambition to be a multi-activity higher education institution (full-time and continuing education, research, consulting, entrepreneurship), located in Lyon and Avignon, at the heart of food, farming, environmental and territorial development issues, attentive to the quality of life at work and during studies.
