Dassault Systèmes promotes solutions to global challenges with the initiative "The Only Progress is Human

- The two-year initiative is addressed to the public in ten "acts" - with a focus on the following topics: emotions, health, cities, nature, consumption, mobility, energy, water, cultural heritage and the future

- The campaign shows how experiences with virtual twins create sustainable innovations for a better future and is intended to encourage people to take action
- Virtual worlds combine the imagination in a meaningful and sustainable way with the goal of harmonizing product, nature and life

Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA) launched the campaign "The Only Progress is Human". This global initiative aims to raise awareness of today's social and environmental challenges. The initiative aims to encourage people to use the virtual world to create sustainable innovations for a better future.

Over a period of two years, Dassault Systèmes will address the public in ten "acts": The activities will focus on some of the most pressing problems facing humanity in areas such as health, cities, energy and water. They will illustrate how experiences with virtual twins can help overcome challenges and address questions such as "How can we better manage our health in the future?" and "How can we protect our most valuable resource? The aim is to reshape the future, change the way products are designed and manufactured, and create experiences that focus on people and the real world.

The first act took place on February 26 at the Jardin des Plantes in Paris and focused on emotions and the question: "How can virtual worlds change the way we experience emotions? The action showed how the virtual world can involve both the intellect and emotions, becoming a powerful catalyst for positive action. The "3Dvarius" was presented during this unique musical and visual experience called "Virtual Harmony": It is the first fully playable violin printed in 3D - designed with solutions from Dassault Systèmes. The event was accompanied by a call for students to design the next generation of musical instruments.

"The greatest value of virtual worlds lies in their potential to give us a better idea of the future and a better understanding of the social and environmental impact of every decision in the design process. Virtual worlds will be the crucial link between imagination, utility and sustainability to create harmony between product, nature and life," said Bernard Charlès, Vice Chairman and CEO of Dassault Systèmes. "Dassault Systèmes' vision is to drive transformative global change towards a new era of truly sustainable innovation - with people at the center. We want to bring this vision to life with ten acts that challenge perceptions and inspire action. We want to show and promote the enormous innovation potential that people have when they work together.

Experiences with virtual twins developed on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform from Dassault Systèmes have often helped the industry: For example, to launch new medical treatments, to improve services in cities or to design a sculpture that absorbs emissions. These experiences open up new possibilities for discovery by enabling people to design, simulate, test, understand and experience solutions in the context of their use - even before they are physically implemented.
