Why EngageAI?

Many industrialists ask us about artificial intelligence : What is AI? What can the AI do for me in my business, products or services? How can I identify the most emerging AI technologies? Where to start ? Who can bring me solutions ?

In the framework of the FIT association, IRT have decided to get together to design a joint R&D offer dedicated to this technology: EngageAI.

EngageAI is an initiative built to meet the needs of the industry:

  • Most of our collaborative projects integrate AI.
  • Many locks have already been identified in the field of AI.
  • We have built a structured expertise around an offer that accelerates skills transfer revolving around AI between academic research and the industry.

What EngageAI has to offer?

The EngageAI initiative supports your digital transformation through AI using a transfer of results and know-how developed within our projects. One of our main goals is to advance knowledge and develop AI methodologies by partnering with the relevant academics.

Our offer is divided into three parts :



A fast and agile interaction mode focused on initializing the use of AI

Fast and agile interaction, short duration (3-6 months)
Accompany industries in the quick tests of AI solutions
Design proof of concepts adapted to the needs of industrialists
Propose a set of AI technology bricks already tested at the IRT
Transfer of skills and identification of locks


Multi-partner projects de R&D focused on the impact of AI technologies on the industrial fabric

Interaction over a longer time (between 2 and 5 years), multi-partners, conducive to the resolution of challenges and structuring industrial locks
Federate IRT SystemX researchers, academic actors and industrial partners in collaborative case-oriented R & D projects
Facilitate the mastery of AI technologies and services by using a dedicated digital base composed of the most used scientific and technological bricks
Accelerate the development and production of work recovery prototypes using the assets already realized and capitalized on the Institute’s technological platforms


Accelerated fundamental research around AI

Interaction focused on the scientific challenges specific to AI technology, bringing together the most renowned laboratories in the field
Create joint research initiatives, industrial chairs or doctoral programs with the financial support of industrial partners
Help strengthen the Institute’s expertise to serve the use cases dealt with in the “Boost” and “Improve” offers
Aggregate, capitalize and disseminate these skills and knowledge from Upstream research
