The French National RFID Centre (CNRFID), founded by the French Ministry of Economy, Industry and Employment, works to facilitate the adoption and use of RFID and NFC technology.

Since its establishment, CNRFID has developed the use of RFID and drawn together initiatives in France and abroad. It promotes relationships between providers (designers, manufacturers, suppliers, system integrators, etc.), RFID and NFC solutions users (industrial and public services in all sectors and of all sizes), institutions and research organisations. CNRFID offers services that are tailored adapted to the needs and interests of its 140 members and each year brings together several hundreds of French and international players in RFID and NFC markets.

CNRFID aims to promote intelligent use of RFID and NFC technologies. This aim is undertaken with the greatest transparency and with all the neutrality that is essential to a National Reference Center. The main objectives are to encourage deployment of automatic identification solutions and to develop partnerships between solutions providers, users, research centres and institutions in the following ways:
- CNRFID operates in all business sectors to identify the added value of RFID/NFC technologies, analyse trade-specific processes and help with drawing up specifications and identifying suitable solutions
- Financial and technical support for developing RFID and NFC solutions
- Help with participation in collaborative European projects
- Contribution to standardisation and to legal and regulatory developments (AFNOR, ISO, CEN, etc.)
- Support in developing the business of CNRFID members
- Training (scientific and managerial) for RFID/NFC users and providers
- Recruitment advice
- Introducing and popularising RFID and NFC technologies
- Forwarding calls for solutions to a contact database of over 8000 contacts
- Strategic technology and market watch
- Help with participation in events (meetings, congress, etc.)
