Designed and financed by Total, the ARGOS challenge is being implemented in partnership with the French National Research Agency (ANR).

Total is organising and financing the Argos challenge. The Group is allocating a budget of up to 600,000 euros to each team. A prize of 500,000 euros was awarded to the winner.

ANR has been appointed by Total to manage the call for proposals launched in December 2013, oversee the project assessment process and support Total in organising competitions.
