The industrials and researchers on the Board of Directors and Scientific Advisory Board provide strategic piloting and research advise to the management team. The training program is therefore reviewed on a yearly basis to take into account new needs. Every year 150 lecturers from partner companies and alumni are invited to speak at EBI; they either organise scientific activities, after-works or co-working sessions. The 2500 alumni (graduate engineers and specialised master) are undeniable daily assets.[VK1] Since 2017 the school has been carrying the alumni’s association operational actions through a commodate agreement. The school and alumni therefore work hand in hand to embolden the EBI engineers. The alumni support the students and research thanks to honorary scholarships and loans; they also play an active part in the learning program and guide the young entrepreneurs in their career paths. You can join the alumni network as of the 3rd year, and lifetime contribution at student rate is available as of the 1st year! [VK1]I would put this sentence just after « career path ».
