European Research Council 2018
The Extreme-scale Mathematically-based Computational Chemistry (EMC2) project led by Eric Cancès, Laura Grigori, Yvon Maday and Jean-Philip Piquemal has won an ERC Synergy Grant in the context of the 2018 call for projects, and is one of the 27 winners announced on Tuesday, October 23 2018. The four EMC2 principal investigators explain the challenges of this very high-level research project.

We sometimes have to accept making detours in order to find a new, promising transfer opportunity. The spreadsheet verification project, winner of an ERC Proof of Concept grant from the European Research Council, is proof of this. Meeting with Xavier Rival, head of the Antique project team - where it all began.
Although he defines himself as a DIY-engineer, Adrien Taylor explores the field of mathematical optimisation and its potential applications with an open and curious eye. Portrait of this young Belgian, whose thesis has won many prizes and who is a post-doctoral researcher in the Sierra project team at the Inria Paris centre.
Being able to reproduce the results obtained is a major challenge in biomedical research, and an essential stage in drawing lasting conclusions from them. Olivier Colliot and Stanley Durrleman's ARAMIS team is an Inria team (based at the ICM (Brain and Spine Institute), jointly with the CNRS, Inserm and Sorbonne University) that has developed a set of software tools enabling reproducibility in medical decision-making support system evaluation studies. The results are published in the journal Neuroimage.
Created in 2016, the start-up Kayrrosspecialises in the energy sector and quantitative information. Going from 5 to eighty employees in two years, it offers innovative software solutions for the real-time measurement of oil stocks worldwide.
Meeting with Alexandre d'Aspremont, CNRS researcher in optimisation and machine learning in the Sierra team (at the computer science department of the École normale supérieure, ENS Paris/Inria/CNRS) and co-founder of the start-up.
Prize and Award
Early July, the 6th Lagrange Prize in Continuous Optimization was awarded to Francis Bach, head of the Sierra team at the Inria Paris centre, and to two of the team's former post-doctoral researchers.
Prix et distinction
At the end of May, Xavier Leroy, head of the Gallium project team at Inria, was appointed professor at the Collège de France for the "Software Sciences" permanent chair. This is great recognition for his scientific career, but also for the discipline he champions: fundamental computer science.
European Research Council 2017
The European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grants are awarded each year to senior scientists to reward the excellence of their research work and to enable them to carry out an exploratory project over five years.
