Support for research and innovation

To gather public and private research

It implements several programs to materialize the interaction between public and private research. Convinced that the conditions for a harmonious development of the public / private partnership go through the support of research laboratories and doctoral students, by the provision of resources and by the development of a common vision of research orientations, the Foundation offers a three-step methodology:

  • Information: creation of an internet platform and a place for exchanges between the various research and innovation players dedicated to the open calls for projects
  • Preparation: selection of projects that meet the requirements of scientific excellence
  • Support: funding and promotion of selected projects

All actions are carried out in an ethical and transparent manner in the service of the general interest.

The Board of Directors is the guarantor of the Foundation’s main orientations. It has 9 members, including a college of 3 outsiders, qualified in the Foundation’s field of intervention, and 6 representatives of the company FI Group, which provides close support to project leaders.
