Investments of the future

Programme d'Investissements d'Avenir -  PIA

With a budget of some 57 billion euros, the Programme of Investments for the Future (PIA), run by the General Commissariat of Investment, was set up by the French state to finance innovative and promising investments in the territory, with a co-financing principle for each project.

The €57bn dedicated by the French state to investments of the future was undertaken in two stages:

  • in 2010, €35bn was dedicated to the first wave (PIA1)
  • in 2014, the PIA was strengthened and was accorded an additional amount of €12bn (PIA2)


    in 2016, €10bn more have been devoted to PIA

Within this prestigious government program, UCCS has obtained various funding, as coordinator or partner of the projects described in these pages.
