In order to support research projects on topics of interest to the civilian and defense sectors, the French National Research Agency (ANR) and the Defense Innovation Agency (AID) will soon launch an ASTRID call targeting artificial intelligence. The launch of this call, operated by the ANR and fully funded by the AID, is scheduled for mid-June 2021 with a deadline for submitting proposals set for July 27, 2021.

In order to support research projects in this field, the future thematic ASTRID call is divided into the following three areas

Generic methods for Defense Artificial Intelligence
Processing of massive data from heterogeneous sensors
Automatic processing of natural language and speech

The ASTRID program aims to support projects involving at least one public or similar research organization. The total number of partners is generally less than five. The duration of the projects is between 18 and 36 months and the amount of aid is a maximum of 300 K€ per project.
