Activity report


While digital technology, which is omnipresent in our lives as citizens, entails as many risks as it does promises and raises as many questions as it answers, what is Inria's role, what are its commitments, what are its actions, or more simply, what is its impact?

This is what we invite you to discover in our 2021 annual report. We wanted it to reflect our image, that of a platform institute open to exchanges and partnerships, at the heart of the academic, industrial and entrepreneurial ecosystems of digital technology, at the forefront of research and innovation in and through digital technology, with a single concern: to strengthen our impact in order to build digital sovereignty through research and innovation.

This is why, in this annual report, in addition to presenting our strategy and results, we wanted to give the floor to several of our partners, whether academic, industrial or institutional, to share and understand their vision of our institute and digital technology.
