Working at Inria
Established in 1967, Inria is the only public research body fully dedicated
to computational sciences. Combining computer sciences with mathematics,
Inria's 3,500 researchers strive to invent the digital technologies of the
future. Educated at leading international universities, they creatively
integrate basic research with applied research and dedicate themselves to
solving real problems, collaborating with the main players in public and
private research in France and abroad and transferring the fruits of their
work to innovative companies. Inria researchers have published over 4,500
articles in 2013 and are behind over 270 active patents and 110 start-ups.
In 2013, Inria's budget was 235 million euros, 25% of which represented its
own resources. The 180 project teams are distributed in eight research
centers located throughout France.
The Inria Paris-Rocquencourt research center is located next to the famous
Chateau de Versailles gardens, right outside of Paris. Thanks to its
top-quality researchers and numerous international guests, the
Paris-Rocquencourt research center plays a leading role in international
research, in particular around networking and communication systems. The 41
research teams of the center are continuously pushing the boundaries in
developing new concepts and techniques.
HiPERCOM2 is a leading research team in High PERformance COMmunications.
The research team, lead by 3 faculty members (Pascale Minet, Paul
Muhlethaler, Thomas Watteyne), is designing Tomorrow's Internet of
(Important) Things. The team pushes the limits of low-power wireless mesh
networking by applying them to critical applications such as industrial
control loops, with harsh reliability, scalability, security and energy
constraints. Grounded in real-world use cases and experimentation,
HiPERCOM2 co-chairs the IETF 6TiSCH standardization working group and
co-leads Berkeley's OpenWSN project. The team is associated with Prof.
Glaser's (UC Berkeley) and Prof. Kerkez (U. Michigan) through the REALMS
associate research team.
