Established in 1967, Inria is the only public research body fully dedicated to computational sciences. Combining computer sciences with mathematics, Inria’s 3,500 researchers strive to invent the digital technologies of the future, through 174 research project teams. Educated at leading international universities, they creatively integrate basic research with applied research and dedicate themselves to solving real problems, collaborating with the main players in public and private research in France and abroad and transferring the fruits of their work to innovative companies. The researchers at Inria published over 4,850 papers in 2011. They are behind over 270 active patents and 105 start-ups. In 2011, Inria’s budget came to 265,2 million euros, 30% of which represented its own resources. INRIA is partner in about 180 FP7 projects, nearly 100 of them being in the ICT theme of the Cooperation programme.
