reated in 2011, the Inria Awards are designed to reward those who advance digital science and technology through their research projects and innovations. These three scientific prizes are awarded in partnership with the Académie des sciences and Dassault Systèmes:
- The Inria - Académie des sciences Grand Prize. This award is given to a scientist, working in a French institution or emeritus of a French institution, who has made an exceptional contribution to the field of computer and mathematical sciences.
- The Inria - Académie des sciences - Dassault Systèmes Innovation Award. This award is given to a scientist or a team of scientists (maximum 6 people), working in a French institution or emeritus of a French institution, who have been particularly active in the field of transfer and innovation in the field of computer and mathematical sciences.
- The Inria - Académie des sciences young researcher Award. This prize is awarded to a scientist under forty years of age, working in a French institution, who has made a major contribution to the field of computer and mathematical sciences through his or her research, transfer or innovation activities.
