Lets's discover the men and women who contribute to innovative computer science and mathematics and drive the development of our digital world. The Inria awards also underline the contributions of research and innovation support teams who play a significant part in the efficiency and successes of Inria. All the 2017 awards have been honoured during the Inria 50th birthday event at the CENTQUATRE-PARIS on novembre 7th 2017.
Researchers from the Inria centre in Paris and the Brain and Spine Institute (ICM) have, for the first time, discovered very early and almost invisible cerebral and cognitive alterations in people who it is known will later develop frontotemporal degeneration (FTD) or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). They are the co-authors of an article on the subject in the medical journalJAMA Neurologyof 2 December 2017. A significant advance for therapeutic research.
On the occasion of Inria's 50th anniversary, Qwant and Inria have just signed a strategic research partnership agreement entitled "Smart Search and Privacy". This collaboration takes the form of a joint laboratory, for a duration of four years, focusing on the themes of information searches on the Web, security, programming languages, new data published on the Web, the processing of multimedia resources and the respect of privacy.
A security research team based at Inria center, in Rennes, Brittany, France, Tamis recently partnered with American networking hardware giant Cisco Systems in a move meant to design an innovative method for uncovering malware at code execution.
Guix is free software, developed under the auspices of the GNU Project by a growing community of enthusiasts and organizations: currently between 40 and 50 people contribute each month. It is used to reproduce software environments. Recently, the Inria Bordeaux – Sud-Ouest Research Centre, Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in Berlin and the Utrecht Bioinformatics Center in the Netherlands decided to undertake a joint effort using this software. What do the three institutions have in common? They all use or have users of high performance computing (HPC) software, and in these institutions, and many others, the ability to reproduce experiments is a stringent necessity… Guix appears to be one of the solutions.
Cordelia Schmid, recognised as one of the worlds’ leading specialists in computer aided vision, heads up the Thoth project team at Inria’s Grenoble Rhône-Alpes research centre. Her research is dedicated to artificial vision, and more particularly the automatic interpretation of digital images and videos. She has made fundamental contributions in the field of representation of images and videos and in visual learning, allowing objects, and indeed actions and places, to be recognised by drawing on massive databases of images and videos. Her outstanding career in computer aided vision, spanning over two decades, has won her the Inria-Académie des sciences Grand Prize Award.
Winner of the Inria – Académie des sciences – Dassault Systèmes Award for Innovation, Marc Pouzet is a specialist in synchronous languages. His research concerns the design, semantics and implementation of programming languages to be used in embedded systems. Among other things, his research has led to the development of SCADE KCG 6, a language and environment used to make critical software for aircraft and trains.
Karthikeyan Bhargavan, an Inria director of research specialised in the security of data exchanges on the Internet, has just received the Inria Young Researcher Award. This latest award comes in recognition of his excellent knowledge of programming languages, Internet protocols and cryptography. He has followed an unusual career to acquire this interdisciplinary expertise.

In an ever evolving digital world, cyber-criminals never cease to devise new threats.
From critical infrastructure operators and administrations to large companies, SMEs and ordinary citizens: no one is safe. In order to deal with the evolution of these new threats, a new generation of tools is necessary to protect sensitive data and computer systems.
Jointly organized by Inria and Cispa, the first Franco-German academic-industrial conference on cybersecurity will take place on December 8, 2016.
This conference is organised in partnership with the Paris-Region The Systematic Cluster
Pôle de compétitivité
This event replaces the meeting of April 26 of 2016, cancelled because of SNCF strike.
The strategic partnerships that Inria establishes are long-term bilateral partnerships with large industrial groups, formalized in a framework agreement. A research program is developed jointly by Inria and its partner based on the industrial player’s proposed priority topics. Research projects, fitting into this program, are then developed jointly by Inria’s teams and the partner. In addition, a steering committee and a scientific committee ensure that the collaboration is consistent and runs smoothly.
1984: Inria becomes a shareholder in a first company, SIMULOG. It was the start of a history of company creation which is still going strong today! Today, and over the coming months, Inria is turning the spotlight on 30 years of exciting entrepreneurial ventures. It is an opportunity to remind ourselves that the creation of businesses is one of the areas Inria decided to focus on in its search for economic and societal impact.
