The national meetings
This meeting was held by Inria on 23 June 2010 at the HEC school in Jouy-en-Josas, in partnership with Oséo and the competitiveness clusters associated with the ICT and Sustainable Urban Living inter-cluster cooperation platform, Advancity, System@TIC and Cap Digital, on the theme of "Computational sciences for sustainable urban living".
In partnership with the global competitiveness cluster Aerospace Valley, Inria held the second round of the Inria-Industry Meetings on 17 May 2010 in Toulouse on the theme "Modelling and safe systems". This one-day event followed the first meeting entitled "Modelling & digital simulation", which took place on January 26 in Bordeaux.
In partnership with the global competitiveness cluster Aerospace Valley, Inria organised two one-day events on the theme of modelling and engineering in the field of aeronautics and space.

Inria - Industry meetings
Since 1994, the Inria–Industry meetings have provided an opportunity for dialogue between industry and researchers. The objective is to shorten technology transfer lead times. In 2009, the event was revamped. For upcoming editions, Inria has opted to cooperate more closely with the regional competitiveness clusters through its eight research centres located across France. The Lille - Nord Europe centre, in partnership with the industries of commerce competitiveness cluster (PICOM), kicked off on 12 June 2009 on the topic of industries of commerce.
The Life Science Computing Conference 2008 was held in partnership with System@tic and Medicen on 28 November 2008 at the Maison des Polytechniciens in Paris's 7th arrondissement. Computer applications and knowledge management are now an integral part of the innovative strategies used in the development of new medications. These new methods have significant repercussions on the pharmaceutical industry.
Inria Industry meeting
Nowadays, it goes without saying that the use of information technology is important, even necessary, in the life sciences.
The amount of information that needs to be processed, analysed, stored, and represented is constantly growing. These data must then be integrated, compared, and viewed alongside other data to further knowledge and generate added value.
