Edito - March 2017

In this edition we would like to promote 2 calls to support your Inria-California cooperations:

•   The Inria@SiliconValley call for post-docs (2 slots available): deadline is March 31st! ;

•   The Thomas Jefferson Fund 2017 call to support France-US collaborative projects for 2 years : deadline is April 9th. 

Also featured this month:

•   A focus on the RIPPES associate team, between the SPADES Inria team in Grenoble and the EECS Dpt at U.C. Berkeley, on "Rigourous programming of predictable embedded systems"  

•   The launch in the San Francisco area of the Ambiciti app developed through a partnership among Inria, NUMTECH and The Civic Engine, and supported by EIT Digital - Digital Cities Action Line, and Inria@SiliconValley. The Ambiciti App gives people a new tool to understand their environment and raise environmental consciousness by estimating surrounding noise and air pollution  levels.

In 2017, Inria renews its partnership with the NETVA program (New Technology Venture Accelerator) to promote the participation of Inria start-ups! Prospective candidates have until March 31st to apply to this training, mentoring and networking program to better understand the North-American high-tech market.

In the last NETVA edition, 5 inria start-ups were selected and participated to the program, among them Therapixel: a start-up providing a flexible image solution that can be adapted to different  locations and users. Read the interview of Therapixel co-founder Olivier Clatz to learn about their journey! 

Finally, don’t forget to save the date for the annual Inria@SiliconValley workshop that will be hosted  by CITRIS and the Banatao Institute at UC Berkeley on June 8-9 2017
