La Fondation Inria

Changed on 09/01/2020

For over fifty years, Inria has been a pioneer in supporting the development of the digital sciences in our society. Today, the Inria Foundation’s work carries on this tradition and takes up a challenge: Support individuals who seek to make sense of the digital world and encourage, within Inria and its partner ecosystem, projects that drive digital transformation for a civic-minded, cohesive and sustainable society.

Founded in 2017 and repositioned in 2019, the Inria Foundation aims to mobilize new financial resources to allow the Institute to support bold projects that make sense of the digital world.

What does this involve? Giving priority to Inria’s strategic focuses, whether to support the Institute's strategic focuses (scientific risk-taking, technological entrepreneurship), causes the Institute supports (disability, making digital sciences and technologies more appealing to young people, digital transformation of lifelong learning, development of free software etc.) or to contribute to solving the major challenges of our society (personalized medicine, precision agriculture, sustainable development, smart city and mobility, trust-based society etc.) with digital technology as a driver for interdisciplinary collaboration.
