Marie Duflot-Kremer is an Associate Professor at the University of Lorraine and a researcher in the Mosel-Véridis team, a joint Inria-Loria team. She has been awarded the Serge Hocquenghem prize in recognition of her commitment to science education and outreach. She received the prize on 23 October 2018, during the "Journées Nationales" conference held in Bordeaux and organised by the APMEP, the Association of Mathematics Professors working in French state education.

The "intellectual game" aspect gave her a taste for mathematics very early on. She even wanted to pursue it as a career, thinking she did not have any practical options. Since then Anne Gégout-Petit has changed - as has the scientific environment - and she has developed a passion for statistical learning, thereby using her expertise to look for concrete solutions. Having been president of the French Statistical Society (SFdS) and now a professor at the University of Lorraine (UL), today she is head of BIGS (Biology, Genetics and Statistics) - a joint team between Inria Nancy - Grand Est and the IECL (Elie Cartan Institute of Lorraine).
In January 2016, Lorraine University of Excellence (LUE) received the I-SITE label, rewarding the partnership-based voluntarist approach it has adopted for over a decade. Sylvain Petitjean presents the challenges and advances of a programme described as “a global engineering initiative”.
In 2018 Stéphane Glondu, research engineer in the SED (Experimentation and Development department), received the “Impact Paper Award” from ACM SIGSOFT, which recognises work he carried out 13 years ago whilst still an intern at the University of California, Davis.
Jannik Dreier, senior lecturer at the Université de Lorraine (Télécom Nancy) has collaborated with researchers from the ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) and the University of Dundee (Scotland) to carry out a very precise security analysis of the future mobile communication system, 5G.
From 1 to 5 October, Antoine Deleforge and Martin Strauss took part in the IROS conference in Madrid to present their paper entitled "Dregon: Dataset and Methods for UAV-embedded Sound Source Localization"
Three Inria researchers have received the 39th Symposium on Security and Privacy “Distinguished Paper Award”
Vincent, Steve and Itsaka received the Distinguished Paper Award during the 39th IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy, which took place in San Francisco from 21-23 May.
On 6 September Emmanuel Vincent, Inria research director in the Nancy centre's Multispeech team, received the International Speech Communication Association (ISCA) award for the best paper published in the journalComputer Speech and Languageover the last five years. The winning paper, published in 2013, presents the conclusions of the first 'CHiME' speech recognition challenge organised in 2011 by Emmanuel and his colleagues from the University of Sheffield.

- 2011: Arrived to Nancy
Steve Kremer: Following studies in computer science in Belgium, he spent a post-doctoral year at the University of Birmingham in England. On his return he joined the Inria Saclay centre, within the SECSI team, which works on information systems security, before joining the Inria Nancy - Grand Est research centre in 2011.
Vincent Cheval: Following a PhD at ENS Cachan, he studied post-doctoral degrees at the University of Birmingham and at Inria Nancy. He then became a lecturer at the University of Kent, in England, before being recruited by Inria in 2015 as a researcher.
Itsaka Rakotonirina: He works on information security. Following a master's in fundamental computer science at ENS Cachan, he did his end-of-studies internship with Steve, which made him want to continue with a PhD at the Inria Nancy - Grand Est research centre.
