a 5th ERC Grant awarded to a EURECOM researcher


Congratulations to Petros Elia, Professor in the communication systems dept. who has won Proof of Concept Grants for his project LIGHT (Cache-aided Folding for Reducing VoD Loads in Networks).This top-up funding will help him bridge the gap between the results of his pioneering research and the early steps of its commercial development.

He is one of only seven French recipients of this award ! This is the 5th ERC funding awarded to a EURECOM researcher. Once again congrats !

European Research Council


EURECOM awarded with overall five-star QS Rating


We are proud to announce that this year again EURECOM has been awarded an overall five-star QS rating by the prestigious Quacquarelly Symonds (QS) Stars Rating.

This distinction reflects the excellent performance of EURECOM in key areas such as teaching, research, employability, internationalization or e-learning.



We are proud to announce that the EU project SILKNOW is the winner of the 2022  EuropeanHeritageAwards / EuropaNostraAwards 2022 for Research category!

EURECOM and Professor Raphaël Troncy contributed to this project by providing insight about historic silk fabrics and AI technology applied to preserving cultural heritage. These awards were launched in 2002 by the European Commission in collaboration with Europa Nostra and they are Europe’s most prestigious Awards in the heritage field. The Awards promote best practices in the enhancement of cultural heritage, increase public awareness and appreciation of Europe’s cultural heritage and encourage further excellent initiatives through the power of example. Congratulations to our researchers and to our 8 European partners!

A new Best Paper Award has been given for DAGOBAH system at IC 2022, a collaborative research project developed by EURECOM Data Science Department from Sophia Antipolis in association with Orange Labs teams from Belfort and Rennes

Human activities produce a lot of raw data presented in the form of tables. To understand them quickly, EURECOM  and Orange are developing the DAGOBAH semantic annotation platform. DAGOBAH System performs automatic pre-processing and semantic interpretation of tables. It aims to deploy a generic solution used to optimize AI applications such as personal assistants, but also to promote the management of complex data sets of any company.

Congratulations to our researchers and to our partners!

WSA 2021 International workshop will be held at EURECOM, November 10-12


The 25th International ITG Workshop on Smart Antennas (WSA 2021) provides a forum for presenting and discussing research results on smart antennas, spanning theoretical analyses as well as technical and implementation aspects, in modern wireless communications.

For the first time, the Workshop on Smart Antennas will take place in the heart of the world renown “French Riviera” (Côte d’Azur in French), and it will be hosted at EURECOM. 

Congratulations to the 4 new doctors!
