IRISA at the heart of a rich ecosystem of innovation

In supporting companies in their innovations, IRISA benefits from a rich ecosystem of development, transfer and innovation, characterized by an abundance of devices.

As a major player in this ecosystem, IRISA runs a series of seminars aimed at promoting scientific activities and industrial transfer, notably on software and system security (SoSySec), on the security of software/hardware interfaces (SiLM) in collaboration with the DGA, and on the multidisciplinary aspects of privacy and algorithms (RadX).

IRISA and the "Images et Réseaux" competitiveness cluster

The pôle I&R manages the financing of innovation projects, for example from regional funds, encourages collaboration between research and the private sector, supports and labels proposals for innovation calls and selects projects for certain calls. IRISA has 5 members on the selection and validation committee and the board of directors.

A large number of projects involving the laboratory are labeled by the cluster: the Alamo IOT platform to connect, collect and exploit data flows of connected objects in the agricultural world, the Delora solution for precise geolocation of buried networks, the Plug&Pos kit for high-precision indoor geolocation, the start-up Wipsea dedicated to the preservation of biodiversity.

IRISA also collaborates with other clusters such as the Pôle Mer Bretagne Atlantique or ID4CAR.

IRISA, a key player in the Pôle d'Excellence Cyber (PEC)
