To promote technological innovation for human benefit
Since it was founded in 1982, Altran has been involved in major innovations over the years, effectively helping to develop advanced technologies. Having become a global leader in innovation consulting, the Group wished to use the skills it had developed for the common good.
In 1996, Altran created a new independent entity: the Altran Foundation for Innovation. Its mission is to "Promote technological innovation for human benefit" and its objectives are as follows:
- to promote the emergence of creative ideas
- to support the development of innovative ideas
- to enable projects to progress more quickly
According to its statutes, the Foundation must select the projects that it will support via a competition.
A well-known civil commitment
The Altran Foundation for Innovation benefits from over 15 years' experience and its action is now well-known. In 2006, at the Oscars du Mécénat organised by ADMICAL*, the Foundation received the Prix de la Fondation de France to recognise the originality and longevity of its competition.
