France 2030 – A year of action to live better, produce better and understand better

France 2030 is unprecedented in its scope : 54 billion euros are invested so that our companies, our schools, our universities, our research organizations are fully successful in their transitions in these strategic sectors. The challenge is to enable them to respond competitively to the ecological and attractiveness challenges of the world to come, and to bring out the future champions of our sectors of excellence. France 2030 is defined by two transversal objectives

consisting of allocating 50% of one’s expenditure to the decarbonisation of the economy, and 50% to emerging players, bearers of innovation without spending unfavorable to the environment (in the sense of the Do No Significant Harm principle).

France 2030 is implemented collectively : designed and implemented in consultation with economic, academic, local and European actors to determine their strategic orientations and key actions.

Project leaders are invited to submit their practice through open, demanding and selective procedures to benefit from state support.

France 2030 is managed by the General Secretariat for Investments, responsible for France 2030, on behalf of the Prime Minister, in collaboration with the ministries concerned. France 2030 is implemented by the National Research Agency (ANR), the Agency for the ecological transition (ADEME), Bpifrance and the Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations (CDC).

The France 2030 investment plan:

It reflects a dual ambition: to transform key sectors of our economy (energy, automobile, aeronautics or even space) in a sustainable way through technological innovation and to position France not only as a player, but as a leader in the world of tomorrow. From fundamental research, to the emergence of an idea, to the production of a new product or service, France 2030 supports the entire life cycle of innovation up to its industrialisation.

A collective dynamic throughout the territory

90 ambassadors, civil society experts

The unified governance of France 2030 allows for a constant exchange between the state and ecosystems.

Recycling, space, robotics, digital, transport, training… In all fields, civil society experts are stakeholders in the governance of France 2030.

These ambassadors, 90 in number, are consulted on the occasion of the Strategic Steering Committees organized by the ministers, in liaison with the General Secretariat for Investments, to put their skills at the service of defining the sectoral strategy, to advise the State on the expectations of ecosystems and to clarify the choice of selected systems.

Strong networks in the territories

This plan, unprecedented in scope and ambition, has a territorial component: France 2030 Regionalized.

Endowed with 500 million euros, this component aims to support innovation, start-ups, SMEs, ETIs or local organizations in particular, throughout the national territory.

The particularity of the territorial component lies more specifically in its co-financing method: every euro invested by the State is supplemented by one euro invested by the Region. A global budget of 1 billion euros is therefore mobilized by public authorities to free up the energies of our territories and support the most transformative innovative projects.

In concrete terms, the prefects and the presidents of the regional councils are mobilizing their services, alongside the operators, to identify and co-finance innovative projects on an equal basis.

Bpifrance and the Banque des Territoires intervene as operators for the education and contractualization relating to the decisions taken by the State and the Region. Bpifrance acts as an operator of innovation, research and development projects, as well as industrial projects. For vocational training engineering projects, missions are conducted by the Banque des


France 2030 Regionalized intended to combine the strengths of France 2030 and those of the Regions (knowledge of territorial realities, proximity to

local economic actors). The steering committees in charge of selecting the winners are chaired by the regional prefecture and the regional council.

This regional component, which runs from 2021 to 2025, is divided into 4 areas:

• “Innovation Projects” to accelerate the creation of innovative companies, leaders in their sector and which can claim at least a national reach.

• “Collaborative research and development projects” or “regionalized i-Demos” to create a fabric of collaborative industrial relations

companies of all sizes, regardless of their place in the sector, from industrial research to experimental development.

• “Sector projects” to strengthen the competitiveness of French strategic sectors by enabling the use of shared means of production or testing, experimentation or research and development infrastructures.

• “Professional training projects” to support companies in anticipating economic and organizational changes, including the development of skills for practicing new professions.

10 mainland and 1 overseas regions are already committed, 727 million euros mobilized for the local economic fabric. To date, eleven Regions have therefore signed a France 2030 regionalized agreement with the State. The State and the same number of Regions have already committed 363.8 million euros, equal to 72.47% of the set objective. The vast majority of regions, including overseas ones, are expected to join France 2030 Regionalized by the end of 2022. An additional agreement is being signed. To amplify the deployment of France 2030 in all territories, the government is installing “France 2030 and investments” sub-prefects in each department.
