The startup Ullo, which began life within the POTIOC project team at the Inria Bordeaux - Sud-Ouest research centre, has added two new shareholders. Crédit Agricole Charente-Maritime Deux-Sèvres Expansion and IT-Translation Investissement have bought shares in this La Rochelle-based company, which, since 2016, has been developing biofeedback technology for use by individuals suffering from cognitive issues. The aim of this investment is to give this young company the means with which to gain a foothold on the digital health market.
10 years! The R&D platform PlaFRIM is celebrating its ten-year anniversary this year. The past decade has seen the birth of a range of interdisciplinary collaborations, leading to success in various different fields. On the back of this success, the PlaFRIM team are keen to continue their upward trajectory, and to help invent the software of the future.
The project team Geostat and I2S, an SME specialising in high-end digital imaging in high-tech sectors, have formalised their intention to work together via the creation of a joint laboratory, to be known as the Inria Innovation Lab. Xavier Datin, managing director of I2S, and Hussein Yahia, head of the Geostat team, told us more about this shared project.
Pléiade, a new project team at the interface between biology, IT and mathematics geared towards biodiversity and biotechnology
Early March saw the arrival at the Inria Bordeaux - Sud-Ouest research centre of a new project team, Pléiade, a joint undertaking involving Inria, the INRA and the CNRS. Linking biology, IT and mathematics, Pléiade, run by David Sherman, is the first team within the centre to be set up in partnership with the INRA.
Established in Bordeaux since September 2017, Ubisoft wishes to develop its offering by collaborating with academic stakeholders in the region. Supported by the Nouvelle-Aquitaine regional authority, Ubisoft has just signed a four-year research project, called "projet KIWI", with the Inria Bordeaux - Sud-Ouest research centre, CATIE (Aquitaine Centre for Information and Electronic Technologies), the Angoulême office of CNAM-Cedric (Centre for Study and Research in Computer Science) and the LaBRI (Bordeaux Computer Science Research Laboratory). The aim of this collaboration is to address technological challenges in a group of areas linked to the automation of interactive simulations that evolve in real time and the analysis of the players and their behaviour.
The association Poppy Station is the result of a transfer from Inria research and its open source robotics ecosystem, Poppy, towards a multi-partner external structure. Presented at the coming educational innovation trade fair, EducaTec EducaTice, in Paris on 21, 22 & 23 November, Poppy Station invites educational, research and cultural stakeholders to take the plunge into open source robotics.
Born from a collaboration with the Potioc project team, the start-up Ullo is currently preparing its flight to Las Vegas for CES 2019 with the delegation from New Aquitaine. The Roche-based start-up, which is developing new therapeutic approaches for the care of cognitive disorders, will present Inner Garden, an interactive sensory sandbox.
This special edition of Plug'In is published on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the creation of the Inria Bordeaux-Sud-Ouest center.
More than ever, its vocation is to implement a dynamic, to provoke meetings, to encourage projects. For that we offer you a trip back in time, to the origins of the creation of the center and the first academic and industrial collaborations, before returning to the present passing through a decade of innovation and discoveries. Then we meet the collaborators of the center: women and men of science of course, but also all people exercising research support functions.
The technology transfer and the stakes of research in digital sciences finally conclude this issue with an opening to the future: we hope that this magazine will make you want to start new collaboration, to study in digital sciences, or event create your start-up!
We wish you a very good read.
Set up by Florian Bernard, a former PhD student on the Memphis project team, the Nurea startup is rewriting all the rules. Between the worlds of research and industry, as well as the fields of aeronautics and aerospace, and medicine, this is the tale of a scientific and entrepreneurial adventure.
After Lille in 2014, Nancy in 2015, Rennes in 2016 and Sophia Antipolis in 2017, the Inria Bordeaux Research Centre is hosting the Inria Science Daysfrom 27 to 29 June, with the same aim: to unite the Inria communities around exciting research topics and illustrate the range of subjects, approaches and applications examined by the Institute in the digital sciences.
