Our scientists produce knowledge, develop technologies and focus on applications related to the major issues of our society as healthcare, transport, energy, communications, security and privacy protection, smart cities and the factory of the future, etc.
At Inria, the major themes shaking up digital ecosystems come to life through the Institute’s project teams and their research subjects, with the focus very much on multi-disciplinary exploration and versatility” .
Human scale, independence, versatility, multiculturalism… these are just some of the qualities that characterise Inria’s project teams today.
Replacing the human being at the centre of the laboratories and projects they give rise to, means promoting the values of exchange, listening and collective intelligence, which are vital to the successful conduct of projects of excellence. Through the flexible model of the project team, Inria promotes innovative research as from the start and guarantees close support to all its researchers.
With digital technology disrupting all established frameworks, in order to bring through ambitious scientific and entrepreneurial projects, Inria's responsibility is to create value on a large scale for society and for the economy; to raise France’s profile and boost its attractiveness; and to increase the impact of research and innovation in the digital sector.
Each year, scientists create about a hundred software products resulting from work carried out in project teams.
The institute is developing ambitious research partnerships with both major manufacturers and smaller companies, the majority of which are based either in France or elsewhere in Europe. These partnerships are pushing at the frontiers of research and helping to promote risk-taking.
