The idea behind the D'Ahoy project belongs to dr. Siegfried Rouvrais at the IMT Atlantique University in France. The aim of D'Ahoy is to develop teaching and research in the field of decision analysis. Along with RU and IMT  Atlantique, the participating Universities are Ecole Navale, Fundació Universitat-Empresa de les Illes Balears, City of Glasgow College, Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework Partnership and Fondation des Régions Européennes pour la Recherche, l'Éducation et la Formation.
