In January 2016, Lorraine University of Excellence (LUE) received the I-SITE label, rewarding the partnership-based voluntarist approach it has adopted for over a decade. Sylvain Petitjean presents the challenges and advances of a programme described as “a global engineering initiative”.
The Neurosys team has been welcoming Eliott Sarrey, a robotics enthusiast and winner of the Google Science Fair Incubator Award.
The new Inria Nancy centre research team, MOCQUA, explores emerging computational models such as infinite precision dynamical systems, higher-order computation and quantum computing.
The team’s leader, Emmanuel Jeandel, met with us to explain more about the work of his team, which is made up of nine permanent researchers, a post-doctoral researcher and two PhD students.
On December 20th 2017, in the presence of Jean-Pierre BOURGUIGNON, President of the European Council of the Research (ERC) we invited ERC grantees to present their results, advances and ambitions. A precious opportunity to share their views on the future of their disciplines, discuss the best way of guaranteeing the economic and societal impact of the researches led in Inria Nancy Grand – Est Center as well as is and at our academic partners.

The Larsen team from the Inria centre in Nancy is developing - in partnership with the Institute of Movement Sciences (CNRS & Aix-Marseille University) - miniature and semi-autonomous robots capable of exploring the inaccessible areas of monuments and leaving a minimum of traces behind.
2016 marked a busy year in the field of computational sciences with key issues like Open Access, Text and data mining, Articial Intelligence. Once again, the researchers of Inria worked to meet the social and economic challenges of our time: help in the home, interconnected devices, humanoid robotics, autonomous car... Just to name a few, there were new partnerships and researcher profiles, software development. Discover (or revisit) the events that set the tempo for the year.
A team of researchers, Joshua Fried and Nancy Nadia Heninger (University of Pennsylvania), Pierrick Gaudry (CNRS/University of Lorraine) and Emmanuel Thomé (CARAMBA team, Inria/University of Lorraine), has recently demonstrated that certain standards used in cryptography in order to secure exchanges and communication use prime numbers whose origin is unverifiable: at least 37% in HTTPS (of the million most visited Internet websites), and at least 13% on IPsec VPNs. This represents a real risk of spying on both individuals and economic interests.
The French government is supporting the OpenPaas::NG project under the Investments for the Future Programme, to the tune of a total of €10.7M. Funded by Bpifrance and led by Linagora, this project in partnership with the COAST project team in respect of the research element seeks to provide a holistic solution for a new-generation virtual office for businesses and public administration offices.
European Research Council 2015
After 4 years of work, Sylvain Lefebvre and his Shapeforge project have obtained a European Research Council grant to launch the pre-market phase of the IceSL software. The software is designed to simplify object modelling with a view to 3D printing.
