Today, SystemX is deploying the full potential of research in digital technologies. Drawing on the wealth of use cases and research topics contributed by its 180 partners over the last ten years, the Institute has built five state-of-the-art technological environments to facilitate and accelerate the transfer and deployment of results to industry.


Founded as part of the French “Investing for the Future” Programme (PIA), now integrated into the France 2030 investment plan, the Institute for Technological Research (IRT) SystemX got off the ground in early 2013 within the Paris-Saclay ecosystem of excellence. As a new stakeholder aiming to build bridges and foster collaboration between academics, industry and institutions, the Institute has asserted its legitimacy through its multidisciplinary and cross-sector approach, as well as its expertise in analysis, modelling, simulation and decision support for complex systems. SystemX has the distinctive feature of co-developing projects with its partners, based on use cases provided by industrial partners.

Since the IRT was founded, over 180 partners have placed their trust in SystemX to collaborate on more than 60 R&D projects. Thanks to the results of this work, SystemX very soon asserted the ambition to pursue a value creation strategy by building leading-edge platforms and assets today organised across five technological environments:

  • Data science, AI & interaction,
  • Scientific computing & optimisation,
  • System engineering & dependability,
  • Cyber security & networks,
  • Digital infrastructure & software engineering.


“After ten years of operation of SystemX, I am delighted with the results of the investment in this IRT made jointly by the French government, its industrial and academic partners, namely the production of key innovations in the digital field (AI, optimization, data science, systems engineering, cybersecurity, etc.), the creation of technological platforms and teams of international stature. On the strength of this success, I have no doubt that the management team and all the talents of the Institute, at the heart of the Paris-Saclay scientific and technological cluster, will continue to be mobilized to ensure the success of France 2030 and its economic, environmental and societal impact”. Bruno Bonnell, Secretary General for Investment, in charge of France 2030
