SAMSON, a software platform designed to study and prototype nanosystems, developed by the Nano-D research team, has reached 1000 beta testers worldwide. The new version has been available since 23 May 2017. In light of its increasing popularity among professionals in the fields of chemistry, physics, biology and nanosciences, SAMSON users and developers will come together from 23 to 30 June in Lyon to receive training and learn to develop their own modules.
On 23 May 2017, Absise, the Social Landlords Association of Isère, and Inria Grenoble Rhône-Alpes are holding a day of meetings between researchers, social landlords and start-ups on the topic of "Smart homes and innovation in social housing". The aim: to create new synergies between the worlds of research, innovation and social housing in order to develop the social housing of the future: connected, smart, energy-efficient and adapted to consumer needs.

A former Inria Grenoble Rhône-Alpes research student with the nano-D team, Maël Bosson has created a company to develop the connected and "smart" electric bike; he was also one of the first daily users of the electric bike in 2011, during his PhD.
How can disinformation - "fake news" - be traced? What are the sources of production? What are the levers of circulation and reception of disinformation on the Web and on digital platforms? This is a study topic for the Public Data Lab, an interdisciplinary network of researchers, which has just published its first results - a guide to disinformation - during the International Journalism Festival, an event that brings together thousands of journalists from Europe and the rest of the world and which took place in Perugia, Italy.
The IDEX LYON Initiative d’Excellence driven by the Université de Lyon and all its academic, regional and economic partners and stakeholders, was awarded on Friday, February 24th 2017, after the final hearing by the international jury.
The Avalon research team, a joint team between Inria, CNRS, ENS de Lyon and the University Lyon1, in collaboration with the start-up Stimergy, is proposing a new distributed Cloud approach. This approach notably opens up prospects in the field of optimising the use of data centers with a reduction in their environmental footprint.
A Big Data quantitative approach in the social sciences has made it possible to show the social stratification of society from the analysis of the social network and bank data. This work has been carried out by Yannick Leo in the Dante team, and the results have been published in the Journal of The Royal Society Interface. The study was based on the significant statistical capacity provided by a Big Data approach. Interview with Márton Karsai, senior lecturer at the French higher education institution ENS de Lyon, holder of an Inria chair and contributor to this international study.
