Employee projects


Every year, the Thales Foundation launches a Call for Employee projects and selects around a dozen winning projects through a rigorous assessment process. The projects are then implemented with financial support from the Foundation and contributions from other employee volunteers.

The projects address the Foundation’s priorities in France and abroad, in the areas of education (sparking an interest in science, developing digital tools to improve access to education, testing new ways to teach children who have dropped out of school, etc.) and humanitarian relief (helping at-risk communities better prepare to limit the human and physical impact of natural disasters).

Discover the winning projects from 2017, 2016 and 2015.
