Launched in 1997, the Le Monde Prize for research is intended to highlight the early work of young French-speaking researchers who are likely to influence our scientific, economic, social, and/or artistic environment. Jonathan Grizou, a doctoral candidate who defended his PhD in October 2014, working in the Flowers project team (joint project with the University of Bordeaux and Enta Paris-Tech) is one of the winners of this 18th edition of the prize.
On 4th November, children from Bordeaux and Nancy, with support from the Inria research centres, will participate in the R2T2 international mission, initiated by Professor Francesco Mondada from Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). Their task: to use their computer skills here on Earth to program robots to repair the generator of Mars Base R45, which has been damaged by a meteorite.

From High Performance Computing to modelling heart rhythm, the scope of research carried out at the Inria Bordeaux – Sud-Ouest Research Centre is vast. To ensure that its activities are clearly visible, the Scientific Department has structured them around four strategic priority research areas. Here, all is explained.
What are the laws of physics that determine the movements of millions of grains in a silo?It’s a question that has baffled scientists for over a century.The work of Nicolas Brodu, a post-doctoral researcher in the Geostat project team at Inria Bordeaux - Sud-Ouest, has thrown a little more light on the matter.
This is the story of a human and scientific encounter. When Stéphanie Fleck, the Associate Professor leading the University of Lorraine's PErSEUs* team, came to Talence barely a year ago to present her work to the IMH'13 conference (organised by Inria Bordeaux Sud-Ouest and the Francophone Association for Man-Machine Interaction), she discovered the work of Martin Hachet, who was heading the Potioc project team.
Our 2015 campaign to hire young graduate scientists and young experienced scientists and senior researchers has gotten off to a start.
