On 24 June 2013, Michel Cosnard, Chairman and CEO of Inria, and Vinton Cerf, Vice President and Chief Internet Evangelist of Google, signed a general partnership agreement.
This collaboration between Inria and Google first emerged in 2009 and was centred on the theme of major distributed systems. By signing a global cooperation agreement, Google and Inria have confirmed their desire to deepen their collaboration and pool their research skills to invent the web services of tomorrow. This partnership will reinforce the principle of monitoring and supporting high potential actions on subjects such as automatic learning, the semantic web, public data access, database management, and more.
