"Making Inria a major actor in the European research arena whilst confirming its international influence"; such is the institute's objective, with the aim of giving greater coherence and synergies to our actions within the areas of European and international research.
Inria is an institute that is recognised abroad for the quality of its research and its capacity to transform its findings into technological innovations liable to respond to societal issues. However this situation is not a foregone conclusion, and Inria must develop and strengthen its strategic partnerships with the best international actors in its field in order to increase its influence and visibility abroad.
In particular, Inria favours the emergence of both its own instruments (Inria International Labs , Associate Teams , Chairs , Sabbaticals ) and those proposed by the European Commission through international actions funded by the Horizon 2020 framework programme .
Inria must ensure its presence in European research programmes, notably the Horizon 2020 framework programme, and foster institutional, scientific and industrial relations developed with partner organisations in Europe and throughout the world.
