We support innovative projects related to education, research, or heritage that benefit the general public.
Diving into the virtual world to improve the real world
La Fondation Dassault Systèmes® was set up by Dassault Systèmes, the 3DEXPERIENCE Company and world leader in 3D design software.
Serving science, technology and art for a sustainable society, Dassault Systèmes and its 20,000 passionate employees strive to transform the way to innovate. Its mission is to provide business and people with 3DEXPERIENCE universes to imagine sustainable innovations capable of harmonizing product, nature and life. With its 3DEXPERIENCE platform, it connects designers, engineers, business entities and consumers in a new social enterprise.
La Fondation is actively contributing to transforming the learning experience by offering academic and research institutions opportunities to leverage the power of experience to learn better and faster by transforming the way people interact with, and discover, the world around them.
La Fondation Dassault Systèmes' mission is to strive for a sustainable future by supporting the development of an economy based on collective intelligence that is accessible to the greatest possible number of teachers, students and searchers.
It aims to achieve this by supporting innovative, not-for-profit projects in the areas of education, scientific research, and heritage. Schools, universities, research institutions, science and technology-focused community organizations and museums can all leverage the power of virtual experiences to change the way people discover and interact with the world around them.
La Fondation is committed to transforming the way we learn, discover and share knowledge and the skills needed to meet the challenges ahead.
In the decades ahead, education, an innovative mindset and ongoing improvements to skillsets will be more important than ever to fulfillment of individuals and society. Today we face a changing world. Unless education manages to keep pace with changing skills requirements, growing inequalities will undermine global economic growth, with profound social and political repercussions.
To address the major environmental, economic and social challenges facing the international community, inventing solutions to successfully transition to a more sustainable society calls for the creation and sharing of knowledge and a science-based understanding of the world and its future prospects.
Making the virtual world and creating new 3D content accessible to everyone will help drive citizen-inspired innovation and will foster novel experiences in the areas of education, research, and heritage.
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.
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.
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.
La Fondation Dassault Systèmes: 3 separate foundations on 3 continents.
We support innovative, not-for-profit projects from projects leaders based in Europe, India and the United States.
