National Initiatives


Participants : Thierry Colin, Angelo Iollo, Clair Poignard, Olivier Saut, Lisl Weynans.

Part of the team (M.Colin, T.Colin, A.Iollo, C.Poignard, O.Saut and L. Weynans) is involved in the consortium MEMOVE coordinated by MC2 (coordinator C. Poignard), and which begins at the beginning of 2012. This consortium is composed of four partners (the Vectorology and Anticancer therapies team at the IGR, the bioengineering laboratory AMPERE of Lyon and the Department of mathematics of Versailles). It aims at developing electropermeabilization models from the cell scale to the tissue scale. This project focuses on quite long pulses (from micro- to milli-pulses) compared with the ANR consortium INTCELL that has begun in December 2010. The main goal is to provide multi-scale modelling of "classical" eletroporation, in order to obtain numerical tools that can help from one side the biologists to understand the electropermeabilization process when "non standard" pulses are applied, and from the other side it eventually aims at providing tools for the physicians to optimize the pulse delivering when the electrochemotherapy is used.

French-German cooperative consortium SmartOnline

Participants : Angelo Iollo, Iraj Mortazavi.

  • Program: ANR & BMBF

  • Project acronym: SmartOnline

  • Project title: Online security management toolkit for water distribution networks.

  • Duration: 04/2012-04/2015

  • Coordinator: Olivier Piller (IRSTEA)

  • Other partners: Irstea, Veolia, ENGES, CU Strasbourg, BW Berlin, TZW Dresden, 3S Consult, Franhoefer.

  • Abstract: The main objective of the project SMaRT-OnlineWDN is the development of an online security management toolkit for water distribution networks that is based on sensor measurements of water quality as well as water quantity. Its field of application ranges from detection of deliberate contamination, including source identification and decision support for effective countermeasures, to improved operation and control of a WDN under normal and abnormal conditions (dual benefit).
