June 6, 2024 - F.P.Journe celebrated 20 years of partnership with the Paris Brain Institute at the Paris Boutique. The event brought together François-Paul Journe, the Institute's founding members and collectors, marking two decades of support for neuroscience research.

In 2004, Professor Gérard Saillant and Jean Todt decided to create a structure bringing together experts from all over the world to study all aspects of the brain, from fundamental to clinical research. Inspired by their vision, François-Paul Journe chose to support this initiative without the slightest hesitation, making F.P.Journe the longest-standing private partner.

Founded in 2008, the Paris Brain Institute is an innovative research centre in both concept and organisation. Bringing together patients, doctors, researchers and entrepreneurs in a single location, its aim is to enable the rapid development of treatments for nervous system pathologies, so that they can be offered to patients in the best possible time frame. Located at the heart of the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital, one of Europe's leading neurology centres, the Paris Brain Institute has become a world reference in just 15 years.

Many milestones have not only strengthened the ties between the two entities, but also helped raise important funds. By offering unique pieces at auctions, donating 30% of the profits from the sale of each Centigraphe since 2008 and funding ambitious projects, F.P.Journe has demonstrated its long-term commitment to the Paris Brain Institute and its mission.

In addition to existing initiatives, F.P.Journe and the Paris Brain Institute are announcing a new partnership to support the Research and Development Unit (now called RnD Unit F.P.Journe), in order to enhance its capabilities in 2024-2026 through the recruitment of engineers and the acquisition of cutting-edge equipment.
