Diving into the virtual world to improve the real world

For a sustainable world

La Fondation Dassault Systèmes supports projects contributing to a more sustainable future. At the heart of our expertise, virtual worlds offer huge potential and prospects for innovation capable of delivering benefits in all areas of society. Therefore, we chose to help transforming the way we learn, discover and protect our heritage.

To do so, we focus in 3 main areas:

  • Education
  • Research
  • Cultural Heritage.

Education - La Fondation Dassault Systèmes


While literacy rates have improved globally, new challenges have emerged, such as the need to train more young people in science and technology and digital tools, foster innovation, and integrate sustainable development into all levels of education and learning. Giving students broader access to virtual worlds and 3D content allows students to work both collaboratively and independently to unleash their creative thinking to be prepared for their future.

Research - La Fondation Dassault Systèmes


Scientific research is the main contributor to solving the major economic, social, and environmental challenges of today’s world. La Fondation Dassault Systèmes empowers researchers to stretch the limits of their knowledge by enabling them to work on lifelike digital models of the real world.

Cultural Heritage

In the fast-paced world we currently live in, cultural heritage constitutes a source of identity and cohesion. Understanding the past is fundamental to shaping the future. With 3D simulation technology, scientists can unravel the threads of our heritage and safeguard it for future generations.
