The following topics will be discussed: Tomorrow’s ICTs for Sustainable Mobility, Connected Vehicles, Smart Cities, and Customized Multimodal Mobility. Master’s and doctoral/postdoctoral students of all subject matters related to the topics are invited to attend to enhance French-German scientific dialog. Click here for more information.
Final review of LOLA
The EURECOM-led European project LOLA has received excellent reviews by the examiners for all its achievements. The project presented a set of wireless communication low-latency techniques for emerging applications such as machine-to-machine communication and interactive multi-player games. LOLA offers concrete solutions for next generation wireless communication systems, particularly 5G networks.
OWASP Europe Tour stops at EURECOM
On June 24, the 2013 OWASP Europe Tour stopped at EURECOM, the only French site selected by the conference. The Open Web Application Security Project is an event across the European region which promotes awareness about applications security so developers and companies can make informed decisions about true application security risks. Davide Canali, researcher in EURECOM’s Networking and Security Department, talked about honey pots and security against attacks and Giancarlo Pellegrino, from SAP Germany, presented various methods to detect logic vulnerabilities.

Monaco and EURECOM to create a lab for digital security
On June 11, after the Principality joined EURECOM’s Consortium, Mrs Marie-Pierre Gramaglia, Minister of Public Works, Environment and Urban Development came to Sophia Antipolis with other dignitaries to seal the partnership between Monaco and EURECOM. In her speech, she underscored “the partnership with EURECOM as another step in Monaco’s project on digital security, with research and development being a necessary and indispensable element of a global strategy”. This new agreement marks the beginning of a hands-on cooperation. Two doctoral students will work in Monaco and Sophia Antipolis for four years in close collaboration with EURECOM, the Monaco Government and Monaco Telecom. To view the video, click here.
First Newcom Summer University
NEWCOM# (Network of Excellence in Wireless Communications) staged its first summer school at EURECOM. The working sessions focused on interference management for tomorrow’s wireless networks. The first edition was well attended with over 60 participants and showcased six renowned speakers and three hands-on sessions.
NEWCOM # is financed through the 7th framework program of the European Union, and pursues long-term, interdisciplinary research on the most advanced aspects of wireless communications.
Indigen, a partnership research celebrated during the Carnot Institute 17/20 event
Created in 2003 by two 2002 graduates, Jérôme Clerico and David Pistori, Indigen is celebrating ten years of operation and technological innovation.
Through its personalized support, network of partners, scientific expertise, as well as legal and logistical assistance, EURECOM has been supporting the promising startup from the outset. Originally a software publisher, Indigen was able to develop technologically-advanced tools, filing several patents in its first years. As client and partner of choice, EURECOM has always participated in the development of these tools.
In 2010, Indigen took a new course to focus on high-end digital engineering. The company is taking part in the design and development of intricate and prestigious Web platforms with a high degree of engineering skills. Some of their latest customers include Nespresso, Lancôme, Chanel, Orange, Intel, and Dior. Read the company's history in the research and innovation blog.
EURECOM’s policy is to support the creation of start-ups born in its research labs, in close collaboration with the Telecom ParisTech incubator specialized in creating and developing innovative ICT projects.
Organized by Sophia Antipolis’ Club des Dirigeants, Sophia Games is a fun sports event comprising various competitions opened to everyone involved in the science park in all categories. The 19th edition hailed the performance of EURECOM’s students competing in the sailing, carting, running, badminton and night cycling competitions.
In sailing, EURECOM’s team finished 1st of its division despite stormy weather and a race where all participants ended up paddling to the finish line.
Students in a scientific expedition in Spitzberg
Antonin Bertin, engineering student at EURECOM and his two teammates from INP Grenoble give us an enthused account of their mission to Spitzberg carried out with Telecom ParisTech. It took them three weeks of cross-country skiing pulling a sled filled with food to get to the Tunabreen glacier. This by itself was a remarkable athletic feat in light of Spitzberg’s rugged terrain. The team filmed, photographed and surveyed the area. Their data will complement data taken by radar and satellites and will be used to build a model for forecasting glacial melting in Spitzberg. These three mountain and nature lovers are convinced that everyone has a role to play to protect our environment, and they used their engineering education to raise awareness about the critical state of the Arctic.

EURECOM, founding partner of Com 4 innov
The COM4INNOV platform, an SCS cluster initiative, offers an optimized technological basis for converging services mixing the Web, multimedia and mobility. Officially inaugurated last February with all its partners and future customers, the platform will test the networks and mobile services of tomorrow’s 4G\LTE\IMS as well as communicating objects.
EURECOM is extremely active in the research areas devoted to developing the future evolutions of the LTE and LTE-A standards, also bringing its expertise in the definition of technical specifications. EURECOM will use the platform to experiment and study the technological advances relating to the LTE standard and M2M, thus detecting emerging elements capable of addressing new communication challenges.
The 2012 Activity Report is out!
The 2012 Activity Report, a review of the year in figures and photographs, is now available online on EURECOM’s Web site.
You will also find a brochure celebrating EURECOM’s 20th anniversary, and the last research report.
AALTO University-EURECOM Workshop
Organized at EURECOM to enhance cooperation, the workshop encouraged exchanges on various current research subjects from both institutions. Twelve researchers from the science and electrical engineering schools of the Aalto University attended as well as EURECOM teachers and students. This successful event was not only the opportunity for faculty members from both schools to get to know each other, but also to encourage future exchanges between students and encourage common research activities.
