Inria launches the first French high security academic research laboratory

1/07/2010

Located at the heart of Inria’s Nancy-Grand Est centre, the high security computing laboratory (LHS) is aimed at hosting decisive research work for making networks, Internet exchanges and associated telecommunications equipment safe. Alongside its partners, Inria is today inaugurating this completely new research facility. The LHS provides the technological and regulatory framework needed for scientific advances that accompany developments in our technological society. Open to industrial partners, the laboratory also represents a favourable opportunity for reliability tests that are needed before various technological products or solutions can be put on the market.

Research action

Inria launches an unprecedented data measurement experiment at the heart of the Moroccan desert

9/03/2010

This year, the SULTAN MARATHON DES SABLES will welcome a new kind of runner. Guillaume Chelius, a junior research scientist in Inria’s DNET team and an ultra-marathon runner, will run 250 km over 7 days, kitted out with 16 sensors, which will, in real time and without any human intervention, measure numerous physiological, biomechanical and environmental variables. Once they have been sorted and analysed, the resulting data can be used to model the race and study the body’s movements, its performance levels, and the ways in which it adapts to the environment, weather conditions and fatigue.

Signature Accord Allistène Valérie Pécresse

Strategy

Foundation of Allistene, the Digital Sciences and Technologies Alliance

8/03/2010

The first coordination meeting of the Allistene alliance was held on 1 March 2010. Its founding members are major national players in ICST research: the CDEFI (Conference of Engineering College and Training Directors), the CEA (French Atomic Energy Commission), the CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research), the CPU (Conference of University Chairmen), Inria and the Institut Télécom. Allistene's aim is to promote collaborative thinking and coordinate its members in terms of foresight and overall strategy, the challenges of advanced training, planning, European and international partnerships, and industrial utilization and liaison. Its functioning will be based on six working groups called "programmatic groups", comprising top-flight researchers, and the division of tasks between a Chairman of the Coordination Committee in charge of overall management and five Vice-Presidents in charge of managing Allistene's work in each of its key assignments.

Ethics and ICST

The CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research) ethics committee and an Inria commission recommend the creation of an ethics committee covering research into computational science and technology

12/01/2010

The CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research) and Inria are making two reports public, namely "In favour of ethics covering research into information and communication science and technology" written by the CNRS ethics committee (known as COMETS), and "Report on forming an ethics committee covering research into computational science and technology" drafted by a commission set up by Inria. At the heart of our societies' development, computational science and technology and the research they generate really do raise fundamental ethical issues that both organisations wished to investigate.  Emphasising the many fields affected by such issues, and describing the current situation in other disciplines and abroad, both reports particularly agree on the need to create an ethics committee covering research into computational science and technology without delay.
