Information mission

Political decision-makers, the scientific community, the media, the general public: IFP Energies nouvelles aims to provide precise and objective information to enable as many people as possible to have a better understanding of the energy issues of the 21st century.

An independent expertise center

IFPEN boasts exceptional documentary resources and a unique capital of scientific, technical and economic knowledge gleaned over several decades of research and industrial successes.
The fields of energy and the environment will be subject to significant change. IFPEN strives to provide as many people as possible with the necessary information for a better understanding of this century’s major challenges:

  • public authorities, by putting our independent expertise (scientific, technical, economic and industrial) at their service so they can make the best choices for each field of energy,
  • opinion leaders, and the media in particular,
  • the general public, by making a set of independent and objective analyses and informative resources accessible. They enable all concerned to form their own opinions on the major challenges to come in the fields of energy, transport and the environment,
  • young people, by proactively contributing to awareness-raising initiatives concerning scientific education and the world of research.


The dissemination of knowledge

While the dissemination of knowledge is one of IFPEN’s public interest missions, it also contributes to its scientific influence, and, more broadly, that of French and European research on the international stage. IFPEN has built up a unique body of knowledge as a result of several decades of scientific research and industrial successes.
IFPEN has created its own peer-reviewed journal, Oil & Gas Science and Technology (OGST).

Oil & Gas Science and Technology (OGST)

Indexed in the major international databases, it covers all the disciplines and fields of activity within the scope of IFPEN.
It is freely available on its website >>

Every year, IFPEN publishes:

  • over 200 articles, 75% of which are in peer-reviewed international journals. These journals are indexed in Thomson ISI databases,
  • reference works in its recognized fields of scientific expertise.

IFPEN is keen to promote scientific research and ensure its knowledge is disseminated to the widest possible audience. To this end, it is a member of the “Universciences partenaires” foundation.
Moreover, the IFPEN website includes a Discovery space aimed at the public. This space was expanded in 2014 to incorporate a new Info Science section, containing the main studies and results associated with IFPEN's publications, as well as a list of events it is organizing or supporting that focus on key problems or emerging themes.

The Science@ifpen newsletter

IFPEN publishes a scientific newsletter four times per year, available online on its website. The objective is to highlight recently published R&D results, in IFPEN’s various fields of activity.
