One of the best-known for-profit consortia is the airline manufacturer Airbus Industrie GIE. European aircraft manufacturers are working together in the consortium to produce and sell commercial aircraft. In France, the consortium, which is considered part of a joint venture, has significant theoretical and practical importance. The French legal system does not contain a definition and does not expressly use the term joint venture or consortium (temporary groupings of companies). The consortium contract in France is a purely contractual cooperation agreement that does not involve the creation of a third party. The consortium shall have neither legal personality nor legal capacity. The contract is concluded between two or more natural or legal persons who undertake to carry out certain works with a view to carrying out a joint project which the members of the consortium themselves could not carry out. The consortium contract is not expressly regulated by the French legislature, but it is permitted with regard to the principle of freedom of contract interpreted by Articles 6 and 1134 of the French Civil Code.
 For example, GENIVI Alliance is a non-profit consortium between different car manufacturers to facilitate the implementation of a vehicle infotainment system. A consortium is a group of two or more people, companies or governments working together to achieve a common goal. Companies participating in a consortium pool resources, but are otherwise only responsible for the obligations set out in the consortium agreement. Each company under the control of the consortium therefore remains independent from its normal business activities and has no say in the operations of another member that is not affiliated with the consortium. Your financial support is provided by the institution from which you receive your degree. The school where you will graduate is the “home” institution that must manage a consortium agreement with the other school, also known as a “guest” institution. Talk to your advisor to make sure that the courses you wish to take at the “guest” institution are transferred to your program of study here. Your advisor will also need to sign the consortium agreement form to verify that the courses are applicable. Remedial courses and vocational/technical courses are not transferred and very few exceptions are allowed. You cannot use the classes you supervise for the consortium agreement.
You also cannot repeat the courses with the consortium agreement without first contacting your advisor and the grants office. An example of a for-profit consortium is a group of banks that work together to make a loan – also known as a syndicate. This type of loan is more commonly referred to as a syndicated loan. In England, it is common for a consortium to buy football clubs in financial difficulty in order to save them from liquidation. [Citation required] Airbus Industries was founded in 1970 as a consortium of aerospace manufacturers. The retention of production and engineering assets by partner companies has made Airbus Industries a sales and marketing company.  This agreement has resulted in inefficiencies due to the inherent conflicts of interest faced by the four partner companies; they were both shareholders and subcontractors of the consortium. .
