Welcome to a universe at the heart of society.


“Scientific and technological skills sponsorship is a partnership between the EDF Group Foundation and EDF R&D. The aim is to make researchers' time available for projects of general interest. EDF's R&D has the characteristic of working for all the Group's businesses. This means that we have a wide range of diversified skills that cover a very broad field that is rarely found in other organisations.”

Etienne Brière, Scientific Director of R&D at EDF
