About the program

Driven by a group of 13 French companies and research organizations*, is the technological pillar of the Grand Défi public investment programme “Ensuring the security, reliability and certification of systems based on artificial intelligence”.

Launched in January 2021 and financed through France 2030, the ambition of this 4-year project is to design a platform of sovereign, open, interoperable and sustainable methods and tools that will enable AI of trust to be integrated into critical products and services. It brings together some forty industrial and academic partners in Saclay and Toulouse around seven R&D projects. is one of the structuring projects on which the second part of the national strategy for AI is based, as announced in October 2021. This programme is funded to the tune of €30M through 2030. contributes to the implementation of the future “AI Act” led by the European Commission.

About France 2030

The France 2030 investment plan:

  • Reflects a dual ambition: to transform key sectors of our economy (health, energy, automotive, aeronautics and space) in the long term through technological innovation, and to position France not only as a player but also as the world leader of tomorrow. From basic research to the emergence of an idea to the production of a new product or service, France 2030 supports the entire life cycle of innovation until its industrialization.
  • Is unprecedented in its scale: €54 billion will be invested so that our companies, our universities, our research organizations, can fully achieve their transitions in these strategic sectors. The challenge is to enable them to respond in a competitive manner to the ecological challenges and attractiveness of the world that comes, and to bring out the future leaders of our lines of excellence. France 2030 is defined by two transversal objectives consisting in devoting 50% of its spending to the decarbonation of the economy, and 50% to emerging players, carriers of innovation without spending unfavourable to the environment (in the sense of the principle Do No Significant Harm).
  • Will be implemented collectively: designed and deployed in consultation with economic, academic, local and European stakeholders to determine strategic orientations and flagship actions. Project promoters are invited to submit their applications via open, demanding and selective procedures to benefit from the support of the State.
  • Is managed by the General Secretariat for Investment on behalf of the Prime Minister and implemented by the Ecological Transition Agency (ADEME), the National Research Agency (ANR), Bpifrance and the Bank of Territories.
