he Monc project team, a joint undertaking involving Inria, the CNRS and Bordeaux INP who develop mathematical models to improve the monitoring of patients suffering from cancer, recently launched a new research project into non-small cell lung cancer. This project, given the name Pimiento, was awarded financial support from the Inria Foundation via the fellowship fund MSDAvenir to the tune of 900,000 euros. We caught up with Olivier Saut, the man in charge of the team.
Established in Bordeaux since September 2017, Ubisoft wishes to develop its offering by collaborating with academic stakeholders in the region. Supported by the Nouvelle-Aquitaine regional authority, Ubisoft has just signed a four-year research project, called "projet KIWI", with the Inria Bordeaux - Sud-Ouest research centre, CATIE (Aquitaine Centre for Information and Electronic Technologies), the Angoulême office of CNAM-Cedric (Centre for Study and Research in Computer Science) and the LaBRI (Bordeaux Computer Science Research Laboratory). The aim of this collaboration is to address technological challenges in a group of areas linked to the automation of interactive simulations that evolve in real time and the analysis of the players and their behaviour.
The association Poppy Station is the result of a transfer from Inria research and its open source robotics ecosystem, Poppy, towards a multi-partner external structure. Presented at the coming educational innovation trade fair, EducaTec EducaTice, in Paris on 21, 22 & 23 November, Poppy Station invites educational, research and cultural stakeholders to take the plunge into open source robotics.
A collaboration that has the wind in its sails! This is how the partnership bringing together the Memphis project team and the company Valorem - a green energy operator - can be defined. This partnership, which began in 2010 with an initial CIFRE (French industrial agreements for training through research) thesis, then enabled the company to join the H2020 AeroGust project in 2015. Today, this European project is coming to an end and the two entities wish to continue to move forward together.
The official opening of the new SOPHiA GENETICS offices in Bidart took place on 12 April 2018 with the President of the Region in attendance. It was the perfect opportunity for us to present Nénuphar, a technology developed from the research of the MONC* project-team, which has now been directly integrated into intelligence artificial platform of SOPHiA GENETICS company with the help of SATT Aquitaine Science Transfert.
*MONC is a joint Bordeaux INP and CNRS project-team, located at the Bordeaux Institute of Mathematics (IMB)
In joining forces, they aim to revolutionise the world of Occupational Health thanks to their Numii® project, developed to improve the detection and analysis of musculoskeletal disorders (MSD). We met the two men behind the project - not only do they think alike, their names are rather similar too: David Daney, researcher at INRIA and AUCTUS team leader, and Cyril Dané, CEO of AIO.
TADaaM enpowers Safran Helicopter Engines to tackle a major scientific challenge. The PaMPA software, coupled with MMG3D, allowed CERFACS to one torefine of a 43 million elements mesh into a mesh comprising more than one billion elements.
The GeoStat project team and the company i2S, pioneer and leader on the digital vision, optronics and image processing markets, joined forces in 2017 in a three-year industrial transfer project.
In an extremely competitive global market, the French wine-making sector must face numerous challenges. It must maintain its competitiveness in a durable way, and evolve so as to be in tune with societal expectations. EXAPTA - a decision-support tool (DST) adaptable to any vineyard - was created with this in mind.
