Focus areas > La Fondation Dassault Systèmes

Fields of action

La Fondation is committed to transforming the way we learn, discover and share knowledge and the skills needed to meet the challenges ahead.

We cover 3 key areas

We chose to support projects to transform the way we learn, discover and protect our heritage.


Transform the way we learn

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.

  • Facilitate innovative methods to learn and discover the world around us
  • Encourage and share the creation of 3D content to teach more efficiently and learn in funnier environment
  • Inspire people to grow in science, technology and engineering
  • Enable more people to acquire the skills required to get a better job or create their own business
  • Encourage students who have dropped out of school to return
  • Support education programs for underserved communities
  • Raise awareness about the challenges facing the world and potential solutions using virtual universes


Transform the way we discover

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.

  • Foster scientific research in all areas focusing on sustainable development
  • Leverage technical capabilities of research labs
  • Encourage innovation


Transform the way we preserve

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.

  • Model, test and iterate to better understand our predecessors know-how
  • Reveal the mystery behind some of the world's most iconic monuments
  • Preserve our heritage using 3D technology
  • Share knowledge and a passion for heritage via models produced by scientists
