Proving theorem and software correctness are the two raisons d'être of proof assistants. Coq, the result of a 25-year project driven by Inria, has become a preeminent tool in this domain. Yet, a recent breakthrough in mathematics by Fields medal Vladimir Voevosdky has opened the door to a huge improvement of formal verification. Inria scientist Nicolas Tabareau is being granted funding by the European Research Council (ERC) in order to explore how this finding could indeed pave the way to a novel and much enhanced version of Coq. As he explains, this work is expected to have a very strong impact and spread the use of this proof assistant across the industry.
The European Cyber Security Organisation (ECSO) was founded recently to promote Europe's cybersecurity market and encourage applied research in the field.
Inria, which already focuses on the cybersecurity, has just joined the organisation as a founding member.

For the experts in computer animation, simulating the movement of hair and clothing in the most realistic way possible is a more complex problem than it first appears. The work carried out by Florence Bertails-Descoubes in the inverse modelling of irregular dynamic systems could just be the solution they are looking for. She has recently been awarded a Starting Grant by the European Research Council (ERC).

Launched as a consortium in March 2015, I-Support aims to design a robotics system to assist elderly people bathe independently. Nine research laboratories and companies are involved in the development of I-Support. The GALEN team at Inria Saclay - Île-de-France Research centre is working on the computer vision for the system.

A powerful software development methodology, DevOps has become a very popular tool in the US for it greatly helps web giants to deliver more frequent updates. True enough, Europe hasn't catch up yet. Coordinated by Inria, STAMP is a consortium whose aim is to provide a critical missing piece to this methodology. To wit: an automated test generation tool that would make DevOps less risky and incidentally more palatable to European companies. This projet has just been selected as part of the EU H2020 call for proposals ICT-10-2016 ‘Software Technologies’.
With the advance of robotics, a variety of service bots will soon be trundling and treading the public spaces among people going about their daily occupations. Making navigation through human tides safe and smooth is the purpose of Crowdbot, a European consortium led by Inria and funded by the EU ICT H2020 program. As project coordinator Julien Pettré points out, this research places a strong emphasis on ethics.
As a major player in Europe's research ecosystem, Inria considered important to clarify its expectations with regard to FP9, the future framework programme to succeed H2020. The institute has therefore forwarded its proposals to the European Commission "to provide food for thought during the active phase of drawing up the next framework programme for research and innovation ".

Rachid Deriche, an exceptional grade research director at Inria Sophia Antipolis - Méditerranée, where he heads the ATHENA project team, has been awarded a European Research Council grant in the Advanced category for the CoBCoM project, at the crossroad between mathematics, information technology, and neuroimaging.
ERC Advanced Grants are awarded under the "Excellent Science" pillar of the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, and are attributed to senior researchers recognised as leaders in their field and whose proposal for ground-breaking research has the potential to significantly push back the frontiers of science.

A collaboration that has the wind in its sails! This is how the partnership bringing together the Memphis project team and the company Valorem - a green energy operator - can be defined. This partnership, which began in 2010 with an initial CIFRE (French industrial agreements for training through research) thesis, then enabled the company to join the H2020 AeroGust project in 2015. Today, this European project is coming to an end and the two entities wish to continue to move forward together.
