The Com'Toniq project transmits the world's first ultra-high speed wireless communications

In the field of wireless communications, system complexity is pushing the envelope and pushing physical limits. Wireless communications systems are required to transmit ever greater quantities of information to users who have massively gone mobile. A recent demonstration carried out by the Institute of Electronics, Microelectronics and Nanotechnology's Com'Toniq project has set out the premises for upcoming terahertz communications and 5G networks.

Tara: transforming the way of studying the oceans

The first results of the “Tara Oceans” expedition (2009-2013) were the subject of a special issue of the periodical Science. In order to study and understand the impact of climate change and the ecological crisis on our oceans, the schooner has been sailing the seas since 2003, taking measurements in situ and collecting samples. Overview of the projects funded by ANR in connection with the Tara expeditions and the data that they made it possible to generate.

Ebola virus epidemic: ANR funds three research projects on the disease

At the end of 2014, ANR introduced an initiative baptised "Ebola expediter" in the exceptional context of the Ebola virus outbreak in West Africa. The aim of this initiative was to identify - among the pre-proposals submitted in the first stage of the generic call 2015 - scientific work that can justify rapid funding, either because it can provide answers to urgent needs in a crisis situation or because its initiation is particularly appropriate during an epidemic. On completion of an expedited selection process, three projects are being funded for a total sum of €1.7 M.

A new call to encourage the formation of European and international scientific networks

The French National Research Agency (ANR) has announced a new call for proposals entitled "Setting up European or International Scientific Networks" (MRSEI). The aim of this new instrument is to encourage the formation of transnational networks coordinated by French researchers. Funding will only be provided for research networks that have specifically been set up to submit a collaborative project in response to a large-scale European or international call for proposals. The deadline for the submission of proposals for this first edition is 9 July 2015.

FACCE SURPLUS: strengthening European collaborative research for sustainable agriculture

The objective of FACCE SURPLUS is to support sustainable intensification of agricultural production. As part of the Joint Programming Initiative on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change (FACCE-JPI), this research funding programme brings together many European partners, including the French National Research Agency (ANR). Following a first call for international proposals launched in January, 67 pre-proposals were submitted in the first stage by teams from 21 countries.

Future Internet: the LISP-Lab project deploys an international experimentation platform

The current architecture of the Internet is based on the TCP/IP protocol suite. To address the future needs of scalability of the Internet and the exponential development of new services, current Internet architecture must be improved. Among proposed approaches, LISP architecture is emerging as a promising solution. LISP (Locator/Identifier Separation Protocol) designates a new architecture and a set of protocols for implementing new address semantics to set up the Future Internet. The LISP-Lab project has endeavoured to speed up the development of this solution and is implementing and deploying a large-scale experimentation platform. As of today, this platform is already operational and freely open to anyone interested in conducting large-scale experiments using LISP architecture and its associated protocols.
