Provide mathematical tools to the community of physics researchers

8/11/2013

For Antoine Gloria, bringing the benefit of mathematics to the physical sciences is more than just a passion: it's a calling. His work in the area of composite materials, which is supported jointly by Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) and Inria Lille, led to his being awarded the Starting Grant in 2013 by the European Research Council (ERC).

Democratizing Proof Assistants

Jean-Michel Prima - 10/02/2015

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.

A European grant for better road traffic management

Corinne Drault - Technoscope - 18/10/2010

Inria OPALE project team member Paola Goatin has recently obtained a 2010 European Research Council grant in its "starting grants" category. Worth some €800,000, this grant will enable this young scientist to put together a team of her choosing to conduct an ambitious five-year research project on mathematical modelling in the field of road and pedestrian traffic control.

Axel Hutt: a physicist peeks inside the human brain

Cécile Michaut - Technoscope - 4/11/2010

This year,  eight ERC grant winners are leaders or members of Inria teams. In the "starting grants" category, Axel Hutt (Cortex, Nancy), Paola Goatin (Opale, Sophia Antipolis), Pierre Alliez (Geometrica, Sophia Antipolis), Kartikeyan Bhargavan (Moscova, Rocquencourt), Véronique Cortier (Cassis, Nancy) and Nikos Paragios (Galen, Saclay) have received funding to form research teams. In the "advanced grants" category, Jean Ponce (Willow, Rocquencourt) and André Seznec (Alf, Rennes) are among the lucky winners and have chosen Inria as their host research institution. At a time when candidates are already submitting proposals for 2011, the 2010 winners are reminded of the road they have covered so far. This week, we will look at the work of Axel Hutt.

Nikos Paragios: a life devoted to artificial vision and its applications in medicine

Françoise Monfort - Technoscope - 16/11/2010

This year,  eight ERC grant winners are leaders or members of Inria project-teams. Nikos Paragios, a teacher at the Ecole Centrale de Paris, was awarded a starting grant. Worth approximately 1,500,000 euros, this grant will allow the researcher to reinforce the GALEN team and conduct an ambitious five-year research project on artificial vision and its applications in the medical field. Here, we get to know the grant-winning scientist.
