Learning Expeditions give industrial teams the opportunity to “immerse themselves” with field visits to get closer to academic teams, French research centers or technology platforms of excellence. These exchanges provide sources of inspiration for new solutions or to develop new public-private partnerships.


Newly proposed by ARIIS to its members, the Learning Expeditions aim to foster exchange between the public and private sector during visits to research centers, platforms or infrastructures of excellence that exist in a great number at the Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), the National Institute for Health and Medical Research (INSERM) and the National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation (INRIA).

These “immersion” half-days aim to benefit all stakeholders. In fact, they allow industry and academic teams to think about common key issues and themes, to jointly look ahead to emerging technologies, to examine their own ways of seeking solutions, and, in fine, to strengthen relationships between the participants and to develop new partnerships.
