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.

Learning how to code by creating robots: this is the promise of Pollen Robotics, the start-up originating from the Inria Bordeaux - Sud-Ouest research centre. In order to democratise the digital sciences, Pollen Robotics designs robots that enable an understanding of programming and artificial intelligence in a fun and interactive way.
It is with great sadness that Inria learned that Michel Combarnous had passed away on Thursday 10 May, at the age of 77. A renowned professor of mechanics and energetics, and member of the French Académie des sciences, he presided over the Inria Scientific Council from 1996 to 1998. He was president of the University of Bordeaux 1 from 1996 to 2001.
The official opening of the new SOPHiA GENETICS offices in Bidart took place on 12 April 2018 with the President of the Region in attendance. It was the perfect opportunity for us to present Nénuphar, a technology developed from the research of the MONC* project-team, which has now been directly integrated into intelligence artificial platform of SOPHiA GENETICS company with the help of SATT Aquitaine Science Transfert.
*MONC is a joint Bordeaux INP and CNRS project-team, located at the Bordeaux Institute of Mathematics (IMB)
In joining forces, they aim to revolutionise the world of Occupational Health thanks to their Numii® project, developed to improve the detection and analysis of musculoskeletal disorders (MSD). We met the two men behind the project - not only do they think alike, their names are rather similar too: David Daney, researcher at INRIA and AUCTUS team leader, and Cyril Dané, CEO of AIO.
