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.

The 9th edition of the NETVA program will support 16 innovative deeptech startups in their understanding of North American markets. Two Inria startups, InSimo and Ekinnox , are among the winners this year.
The 11th Plenary Meeting of the European Technology Transfer Offices (TTO) will take place at Inria Sophia Antipolis - Méditerranée Centre
To facilitate and support the development and cross-border networking of national knowledge transfer office networks and the work of existing pan-European networks, the Commission has launched an initiative that aims at enhancing collaboration on knowledge transfer among the TTOs (Technology Transfer Offices) of large European public research organisations - the "European TTO circle".
The work of Daniele Calandriello, a doctoral candidate on the Project Sequel team at the Inria Lille - Nord Europe research center, has just received an award from the French Association for Artificial Intelligence (AFIA). He has developed a method by which machines retain only the essential elements of very big datasets in order to make them more independent.
The 9th edition of Futur.e.s (formerly Futur en Seine) takes place from 21 to 23 June 2018 in the Grande Halle of La Villette. Futur.e.s - the biggest European festival dedicated to digital innovation - has established itself as an unmissable event. This year, Inria is again participating in the festival's stated objective: to incorporate the emergence of new uses at the heart of the experience offered to the visitors.
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.
Within the framework of the Human Brain Project , researchers from the Parietal team are actively taking part in the multidisciplinary collaborative project  entitled Individual Brain Charting, which consists in creating a precise macroscopic map of the cognitive functions of the human brain. The ultimate aim of the acquisition of functional MRI data during the performance of behavioural tasks is to develop a veritable functional brain atlas. On 12 June, the international scientific journal Scientific Data , by the Nature group, published an article on this major project.
TsunamiLab was designed by José Galaz, industrial civil engineer, during a collaboration between CIGIDEN and Inria Chile. The project has three main goals: generate a useful tool for the community, create quality software and educate citizens through experimentation. José Galaz discusses the genesis and successes of the TsunamiLab, a demo of which will be presented at Futur.e.s 2018.
The TERATEC Forum, a major meeting for international experts in HPC, big data and simulation, will take place on 19 and 20 June 2018 at the École Polytechnique. Once again this year, Inria is a partner of the event, where it will present a selection of innovative technologies. Inria will also be a partner of the European Research Café, which aims to showcase European scientific projects and initiatives in these fields.
In 2017, Inria, in particular through the Software Heritage project, signed an agreement with UNESCO in favour of the preservation and sharing of software source code. Today, with the collection work continuing and increasing, UNESCO and Software Heritage are delighted to celebrate a new and crucial stage together: opening the doors of the biggest archive ever built, making the source code of tens of millions of preserved software programs accessible to all.
