Agence Nationale de la Recherche : boosting french R&D projects

Do you need R&D funding? The Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) offers funding instruments to support your projects.

France’s national research agency, the ANR, funds research projects in France by means of a competitive selection process, in line with international standards. To this end, it has designed and put in place a range of funding instruments both to fulfil the role assigned to it in French public policy on research and innovation, and to cater for the funding needs of the research community. The major challenges addressed by the ANR are in step with the French and European strategic agendas.

Since 2010, the ANR has also been the main operator of the Programme d’Investissements d'Avenir (PIA) in the field of higher education and research. It is responsible for project selection, funding and monitoring.
