"The fact that ICSTs are present in every business sector makes them a very promising field for the future. We need talented and creative researchers in this field, which goes to the very core of today's most pressing social and human problems. Researchers are driving knowledge and innovation forward through working with scientists all over the world. Supporting them in building balanced scientific partnerships with the best colleagues worldwide makes it possible to widen knowledge and strengthen innovation. I hope that our disciplines will continue to attract more and more personnel, particularly women, who are still under-represented. Anyway, I can assure you that a research visit at Inria will be an asset in your career as a researcher"

"Inria has strong connections with American and Canadian laboratories, because of their involvement, similar to Inria, in research and innovation. We are already involved in a large number of collaborations, but paradoxically they are still spread out. Our aim is therefore both to strengthen collaborations and to give them cohesion through a joint research program. In partnership with UC Berkeley and Stanford University, we are launching Inria@SiliconValley."
