Defrost* project-team has participated at the international IEEE-RAS Robosoft 2018 conference. Defrost manipulator received the second place award for the manipulation challenge.
Length of hospitalization, care protocols, examination results, and transfer of records between doctors...French hospitals generate a significant amount of data. Knowing how to process and analyze them could enable an optimization of the patients' care. This is precisely the aim of the ANR ClinMine project, in which, notably, members of the Modal 1 project team from the Inria Lille - Nord Europe center have taken part.
Gang Zheng, a researcher with the Defrost* project team at the Inria Lille center, is one of the winners of the Université de Lille Nord Europe's I-SITE EXPAND 2017 call for projects. His soft robotics projects is among the eight EXPAND projects financed to up to €200k (including the recruitment of a PhD student). These calls for projects were launched with the support of the MEL (Métropole Européenne de Lille) and the collaboration of SATT Nord, the French technology transfer accelerator company.
Christophe Biernacki has been the new Head of Science at the Inria Lille – Nord Europe research centre since last June.A statistician at the head of the Modal* project team since 2010 and previously assistant to the former Head of Science, he was the natural choice for this position.Aware of the steadily growing importance of digital science for both research and society, he is keen to take the helm of the centre at a turning point in its existence.
Calls for projects
On 25th September 2017, the I-SITE programme of the University of Lille Nord-Europe (ULNE) launched the first phase of its call for projects. Inria is one of the founder members of this ambitious project.
For the "Forum Numérique 2067" event, organized on October 5 at la Plaine Images, Inria Lille – Nord Europe research center has created an imaginary newspaper. Members of Inria and partners have contributed to this unique newspaper, dated Octobre 5, 2067. The storyline ? Imagine the digital world of 2067.
Human Computer Interaction
Direction Lille and Grenoble and to Go Touch VR, where researchers in haptic technology turned entrepreneurs have developed a very simple solution in order to touch and manipulate virtual objects. Eric Vezzoli, co-founder and CEO of the start-up - and former member of the Mint project team at the Inria center in Lille - explains.
As part of the regional partnership CPER (state-region planning contract) ELSAT 2020, the ContrATech sub-program focuses on new technologies in flow control able to reduce consumption and improve flight aerodynamics. Maxime Feingesicht is doing his thesis (co-funded by the graduate engineering school École Centrale de Lille and the Hauts-de-France regional council) on control issues. He has agreed to answer some questions on his research, which is supervised by Jean-Pierre Richard from École Centrale de Lille, Andrey Polyakov from Inria and Franck Kerhervé from the University of Poitiers.
