Libres Savoirs"November 2003, ParisTech launched an ambitious project to promote, gather and give free access to the largest number of courses materials from the then 11 member Instituts : " ParisTech Libres Savoirs " meaning literally "ParisTech free Knowleges". This is the main goal of the ParisTech Graduate School website. December 2008, thes website underwent a major evolution; now it offers on one hand access to Open Course Ware and PhD Thesis and on the other hand the homogeneous institutional display of all the Credits, Training programs and Books written by faculty members. The whole website content is structured and can be searched according to the leftmost column containing the ten main fields of scientific expertise of ParisTech.
