The "hardware and software infrastructures for the digital society programme" covers all the research work aiming at producing the hardware and software architectures and infrastructures that will allow ubiquitous access to the various communication, storage and computing infrastructures. These infrastructures are very widely distributed on highly diverse scales (multi-scale), involving equipment items of very different and heterogeneous natures, ranging from networks of objects (sensors, micro and nano-controllers, etc.) to massively parallel architectures (including multi-core parallelism) and machine grids on the scale of the Internet.
The aim of this programme is to incite and support research and experiments in the strategic domains of hardware and software infrastructures for the Internet of the future, ambient intelligence, new services and associated modes of utilization, high-performance computing and storage, and ubiquitous availability of data, information and multimedia content.
The programme is at the core of the rise of the digital society, especially on the following themes:
The thematic lines for this programme are:

The appelsprojetsrecherche.fr portal centralises all information on calls for proposals and calls for applications from ADEME, ANR, Inserm including ANRS, Anses and INCa. It provides a simplified access to upcoming and ongoing calls, giving a greater visibility to funding opportunities. Following their closing date, the calls remain published for a few months.
