Résumé du projet

CominLabs is a Labex involving ten partner labs distributed over Brittany-Nantes, gathering about 500 researchers. Its scientific scope ranges from optics and electronics to over-the-Web applications, with a focus on networks, security and privacy, connected things, the social Web, ICT for health, Multimedia, ICT & social sciences, ICT for education. Due to this distributed nature and wide scientific scope, CominLabs decided to support specific actions aligned with its strategic program for research, education, and innovation. Thus, CominLabs runs a program of highly ambitious multi-lab and multi-disciplinary projects. More than thirty research and education projects, including the CominWeb platform, are now in operation as the result of seven successive project calls in the period 2012-2016. Some projects involve Labex MER and Labex Centre Henri Lebesgue (Maths). Through its leadership and International Advisory Committee, CominLabs seeds, selects, monitors and manages its projects, way beyond what a traditional funding program does, thus offering a novel and unparalleled service to its research and education community. Three issues of CominLabs Days were held in 2013, 2015 and 2016 (about 200 participants including our international experts). CominLabs activities benefit from a high-quality cooperative platform (CominWeb) and maintains a well-documented web site. CominLabs can thus be seen as an exploratory structure about how to manage networked research. Relations have been established with SATT Ouest-Valorisation, IRT b<>com and Orange. Eight first research projects ended in 2015 and 2016, six research projects and two education projects, providing new appealing results in several important domains. They are samples of exciting research that would not exist without CominLabs. Innovation actions have also been undertaken, embrassing patents, start-up launching, clinical trials, and short-term projects with SME.
