Inria has just been awarded the Human Resources - Excellence in Research label by the European Commission, underlining the quality of its European Human Resources Strategy for Scientists (HRS4R). This label is an opportunity to highlight Inria's place in the European Research Area and its commitment to improving its attractiveness to the scientific community worldwide. Interview with Jean-Frédéric Gerbeau on Inria's commitment and its impact on research.
Since 2017, NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) has organised an international competition to standardise post-quantum cryptographic algorithms. Of the 26 submissions chosen as finalists, 7 are the fruit of research by Inria project teams. Anne Canteaut, head of the SECRET project team, talks to us about the objectives and challenges.
Christine Guillemot, director of research at Inria and head of SIROCCO research project team, will receive in september during the international conference EUSIPCO 2019, the 2019 Eurasip Technical Achievement Award. Each year, this award honors a scientist who, over a period of years, has made outstanding technical contributions to theory or practice in technical areas within the scope of the Society, as demonstrated by publications, patents, or recognized impact in this field. Christine Guillemot is rewarded for her contributions to video processing for compression and inverse problems.
Viva Technology is a global event bringing start-ups and leaders together to celebrate innovation. This is also the theme chosen by Inria for this year’s event, bringing to the fore start-ups that began life within the institute, participating in workshops in partnership with French Tech and with a “Doctoral pathway” on the theme of company creation.
Dans le cadre du programme national pour l’intelligence artificielle (IA), l’État a décidé de soutenir la constitution d’un réseau composé d’un petit nombre d’Instituts Interdisciplinaires d’Intelligence Artificielle (3IA) avec lesquels l’ensemble du potentiel français en IA aura vocation à interagir. Après audition par un jury international, les résultats définitifs de l’appel à manifestation d’intérêt 3IA ont été rendus publics ce mercredi 24 avril 2019 par la ministre de l’Enseignement supérieur, de la Recherche et de l’Innovation, Frédérique Vidal et le secrétaire d'État chargé du Numérique, Cédric O. Les projets des sites de Grenoble « MIAI@Grenoble-Alpes », de Nice-Sophia Antipolis « 3IA Côte d'Azur », de Paris « PRAIRIE» et de Toulouse « ANITI » ont été retenus. Inria participe donc à trois des quatre projets retenus.
The Science and Technology Department of the French Embassy in Germany (SST) and Inria are jointly launching two calls for projects to support mobility and finance the organisation of events.
- Call for projects
- Event organisation
- Artificial intelligence
- Franco-German cooperation
- Call for application
Human computer interaction
To make it easier to write in French and to enable the use of all regional and European languages, while devising a more ergonomic design - this was the three-pronged objective assigned to the standard on the French keyboard, published in early April by the AFNOR. Let’s take a look back at what was an unusual project in the company of Mathieu Nancel, research fellow at the Inria Lille - Nord Europe centre and member of the team of researchers who designed the optimisation tool that was central to the project.
Built on cooperation between researchers in biological fluid dynamics, mathematical modelling specialists and doctors, the Reo project team came to an end in December 2018. This is an opportunity to look back on the research into congenital heart diseases and liver surgery that Irène Vignon-Clémentel, senior researcher at Inria Paris, conducted over more than 12 years in that multidisciplinary team.

Cybersecurity is a serious and urgent collective challenge. Cyber threats, closely linked to the digitisation of society, increasingly affect our lives. It is therefore essential to ensure the European Union’s digital security and strategic autonomy by strengthening its most significant capacities. This challenge demands the coordination of the EU’s greatest skills to achieve common objectives in research and innovation.
For its 5th edition, SIDO, a cornerstone event in the world of IoT, is aiming to break down the barriers between different disciplines, combining the IoT, AI & robotics. Inria will present fourteen demos on 10th and 11th April in Lyon, including 5 start-ups, demonstrating the way in which these new companies are able to boost the economic impact of ambitious research projects.
