A strong commitment to European Research
Since its creation, the Inria Saclay - Île-de-France centre has been involved in European projects, be it as the coordinator or as a participant alongside other partners.
Our research teams are involved in over 20 European research and innovation projects. Our activities spread out across the different programmes of the European Commission, ranging from Cooperation, Ideas and People, to European Technology Platforms. Hereafter is a short list of the project Inria Saclay - Île-de-France is involved in:
HYCON 2: control of complex, large-scale, and networked dynamical systems for transportation, electrical power networks, process industries, and biological and medical systems.
UNIVERSELF: UniverSelf unites 17 partners with the aim of overcoming the growing management complexity of future networking systems, and to reduce the barriers that complexity and ossification pose to further growth.
DDMORE: The Drug Disease Model Resources (DDMoRe) consortium builds and maintains a universally applicable, open source, model based framework, intended as the gold standard for future collaborative drug and disease Modelling & Simulation.
FORMATH : the objective of this project is to develop libraries of formalised mathematics concerning algebra, linear algebra, real number computation, and algebraic topology.
TERAFLUX: The aim of this project is to propose a complete solution that is able to harness the large-scale parallelism for Teradevice systems.
CGLEARNING : The Computational Geometric Learning project aims at extending the success story of geometric algorithms with guarantees to high-dimensions.
CENDARI : This research infrastructure project aims at at integrating digital archives
for medieval and modern European history.
EuHeart : The project combines seventeen industrial, clinical and academic partners, whose collective goal is the development of individualized, computer-based, human heart models to target the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
DREAM : This Initial Training Network will investigate the problem of modeling, controlling, removing, and synthesizing acoustic reverberation with the aim of enhancing the quality and intelligibility of audio, music, and speech signals.
Inria Saclay - Île-de-France currently hosts five ERC Grants:
Webdam, led by Serge Abiteboul : this project (Adanced Grant) proposes to develop a formal framework to describe Web applications geared towards the exchange and integration of information. Such a framework would allow autonomous systems to reason together to participate together in overall data management, to cooperate to resolve specific tasks and obtain the desired quality of service.
ProofCert, driven by Dale Miller : this Adanced Grant aims at building a foundation that will allow a broad spectrum of formal methods—ranging from automatic model checkers to interactive theorem provers—to work together to establish formal properties of computer system.
Ceativ, led by Wendy McKay , this Adanced Grant explores how the concept of co-adaptation can revolutionize the design and use of interactive software. Co-adaptation is the parallel phenomenon in which users both adapt their behavior to the system’s constraints, learning its power and idiosyncrasies, and appropriate the system for their own needs, often using it in ways unintended by the system designer.
DIOCLES, led by Nikos Paragios , this ERC starting grant focuses on discrete bIoimaging perception for longitudinal organ modelling and computer-aided diagnosid.
GeCoMethods, is driven by Ugo Boscain. This ERC starting grant is dealing with geometric control methods for the Heat and Schroedinger equations .
Involved in the KIC EIT ICT Labs
(c) EIT ICT Lab
Supported by Inria, the ICT Labs project is one of the three Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KIC) selected at the end of 2009 by the EIT (European Institute of Innovation and Technology). This project, which brings together major players from Europe's academic and industrial communities, reinforces synergies between education, research and innovation to promote "the future information and communication society". Inria Saclay – Île-de-France centre is currently developing its commitment in ICT activities, in particular through its involvement in the Action Line “Computing in the Cloud” in which the OAK research team, in cooperation with TU Berlin, addresses Big Data management in cloud environments.
Collaboration with a European university: Humboldt University, Berlin
The Inria Saclay – Ile-de-France research centre recently concluded an agreement with Humboldt University, Berlin as part of its close collaboration with the Institut für deutsche Sprache und Linguistik (IDSL) and the Institut für Bibliotheks- und Informationswissenschaft (IBI).
