The Institut de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse (IRIT), one of the most important Mixed Research Units (UMR 5505) at the national level, is one of the pillars of research in Occitania with its 600 members, permanent and non-permanent, and a hundred external collaborators. Because of its multi-tutelage (CNRS, Toulouse Universities), its scientific impact and its interactions with other fields, the laboratory constitutes one of the structuring forces of the landscape of computer science and its applications in the digital world, both at the regional and national levels. Our unit has been able, through its cutting-edge work and its dynamics, to define its identity and acquire an undeniable visibility, while positioning itself at the heart of the evolutions of the local structures: University of Toulouse, as well as the various devices resulting from the investments of the future (LabEx CIMI, IRT Saint-Exupéry, SAT TTT…). In particular, it is a founding member of the Carnot Cognition Institute.
