The Place building
In 2018, the Inria Lille centre celebrates its 10th anniversary - one marked by its expansion to the heart of the French Tech ecosystem. Inria has acquired a third building within EuraTechnologies in order to develop its research activity to serve technology transfer and innovation. Part of the State-Region plan contract, this acquisition has been financed by Inria, the Hauts-de-France regional authority, the MEL (Métropole Européenne de Lille).
Research at the heart of French Tech
The Place building will, from September onwards, be welcoming two of our research teams, our Technology Transfer, Innovation and Partnerships department, as well as the InriaTECH platform furthering the transfer of technologies to businesses. InriaTECH is sponsored by the Hauts-de-France regional authority and the European Union through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
At the end of the year, this building will also be equipped with a technological demonstrator showroom, presenting the work of our centre's research teams. These demonstrators will enable the discovery of the latest innovations carried out by our teams regarding robotics, artificial intelligence, data processing, the Internet of Things, human-computer interaction and optimisation.
Let's get together at the end of 2018 for the inauguration of the Place building and to celebrate our 10 years of research serving technology transfer and society.
