FIRST-TF is a cluster of excellence of the Programme Investissement d’Avenir of the French Government. It gathers the main actors in the field of time & frequency metrology in France: laboratories, industry, technical centres. Beyond the creation of an expertise network, FIRST TF promotes the emergence of new collaborative projects within a wide spectrum of applications, from fundamental metrology, fundamental physics to sensors or global navigation satellite systems.
FIRST-TF aims also at increasing the interactions between laboratories and industry, with the will to improve the transfer of technology and know-how. Another important objective concerns the development of innovative education and training offers on time a frequency metrology, with thematic extensions to high precision space-time measurements and their applications.
