Since 2002, Inria has funded an “Associate Team” programme to strengthen collaboration between Inria project teams and cutting-edge research teams around the world. Recently, the three project teams in Lille, Shacra and Rmod created new Associate Teams with research teams in northern Europe.

Two new Associate Teams

Associate Teams are important instruments of Inria's scientific and international policy. The goal of the programme is to strengthen Inria's scientific potential by developing partnerships between Inria project teams and cutting-edge research teams around the world. The programme centres on a joint research project and funds the travel of members of the team in France and other partner countries. Workshops and working groups on joint research may also be organised.

Such alliances are true accelerators for research. They provide researchers with opportunities to pool data and consider new perspectives as well as to create long-term ties between researchers at the international level.

The two new Associate Teams are:

  • King’s College London and the Shacra project team (jointly with Université Lille1*1) form the Associate Team on “Fluidic sensors and actuators for surgical soft robots controlled by real-time Finite Element Method”;
  • Delft University of Technology, Netherlands, and the Rmod  project team (jointly with Université Lille1*2) form the Associate Team on “Improving state-of-the-art code review tools”;

*1 within UMR 8022 CNRS-Lille1-Lille 3-Inria, LIFL.
*2 within UMR 8022 CNRS-Lille1-Lille 3-Inria, LIFL.
