It was within Inria’s Eva team that a high-performance wireless communication technology was developed. This technology has since been deployed by Wattson Elements, which uses it in the pleasure boat industry. With support from Inria, it has developed a platform around this technology, dubbed Falco, which offers new services to port managers and amateur sailors alike. Interview with Elsa Nicol, chief executive at Wattson Elements.
Set up in 2016 by three researchers from an Inria-Ircam*-CNRS team, Antescofo provides classical musicians with the opportunity to practise using an application that plays the orchestral accompaniment in high-quality sound and adjusts in real time to any errors they make. The start-up, supported by Inria, is backed by prestigious investors. It is planning a large-scale commercial launch at the end of 2019.
Built on cooperation between researchers in biological fluid dynamics, mathematical modelling specialists and doctors, the Reo project team came to an end in December 2018. This is an opportunity to look back on the research into congenital heart diseases and liver surgery that Irène Vignon-Clémentel, senior researcher at Inria Paris, conducted over more than 12 years in that multidisciplinary team.

Awards and accolades
The JCJC (Jeunes Chercheuses et Jeunes Chercheurs) scheme was set up to help project leaders work independently on specific subjects, promoting accountability and encouraging scientific innovation.
Set up following the SmartMarinaproject, led by the Eva team at the Inria Paris centre, the start-up Wattson Elements has unveiled technology capable of remotely monitoring boats moored in marinas. The goal of this solution, given the name Falco, was to improve marina management and security while promoting the development of new services targeted at boat owners.
In mid-January Inria published its white paper on cybersecurity, highlighting 5 scientific challenges that need to be met for the future. High on the list is the security of cryptographic protocols. This is precisely the playing field of the Prosecco team (Inria Paris).
The 2018 edition of the Concours Alkindi is underway! Organised by Animath and France IOI, this competition is supported once again by the Secretary of State for Digital Technology and Inria.
