For a sustainable world

La Fondation Dassault Systèmes supports projects contributing to a better future. At the heart of everything we do, virtual worlds offer huge potential and boundless prospects for innovation capable of delivering benefits and serving people's most fundamental interests in all areas of society. To help build a more sustainable and equitable future, La Fondation Dassault Systèmes is committed to nurturing intelligence and creative thinking and to passing on knowledge to current and future generations through experiences in virtual worlds in three main areas of focus:

Education - La Fondation Dassault Systèmes


The world is changing at an unprecedented pace. While literacy rates have improved globally, new challenges have emerged, such as the need to train more young people in science and technology, prepare them for the future, foster innovation, and integrate sustainable development into all levels of education and learning. Giving students broader access to virtual worlds and 3D education content improves the depth and quality of their education via realistic experiments. These tools allow students to work both collaboratively and independently to unleash their creative thinking and build a better world.

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.




Heritage - La Fondation Dassault Systèmes

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.
