On 17 December 2009, an alliance was established for digital sciences and technologies. It is called Allistene, and it brings together the major French domestic players in the field, namely Inria, the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), France’s Conference of University Chairmen (CPU), the French Telecoms Institute and the Conference of the Heads of French Engineering Schools (CDEFI), with the role of coordinating and planning public research in this area. Michel Cosnard, chairman of the alliance’s coordination committee for two years, enlightens us about his role and work.

The first coordination meeting of the Allistene alliance was held on 1 March 2010. Its founding members are major national players in ICST research: the CDEFI (Conference of Engineering College and Training Directors), the CEA (French Atomic Energy Commission), the CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research), the CPU (Conference of University Chairmen), Inria and the Institut Télécom. Allistene's aim is to promote collaborative thinking and coordinate its members in terms of foresight and overall strategy, the challenges of advanced training, planning, European and international partnerships, and industrial utilization and liaison. Its functioning will be based on six working groups called "programmatic groups", comprising top-flight researchers, and the division of tasks between a Chairman of the Coordination Committee in charge of overall management and five Vice-Presidents in charge of managing Allistene's work in each of its key assignments.
