Collaborations in European Programs, except FP7 & H2020

  • Program: DGA-DSTL Project

  • Project title: Assessing and Optimising Human-Machine Symbiosis through Neural signals for Big Data Analytics

  • Duration: 2014-2018

  • Coordinators: Ulster University (Nothern Ireland, UK), Inria Bordeaux Sud-Ouest (France)

  • Abstract: This project's objective is to design new tools for Big Data analysis, and in particular visual analytics tools that tap onto human cognitive skills as well as on Brain-Computer Interfaces. The goal is to enable the user to identify and select relevant information much faster than what can be achieved by using automatic tools or traditional human-computer interfaces. More specifically, this project will aim at identifying in a passive way various mental states (e.g., different kinds of attention, mental workload, relevant stimulus perception, etc.) in order to optimize the display, the arrangement or the selection of relevant information.

Collaborations with Major European Organizations

  • Collaboration with the University of Bristol, BIG (UK), Bristol Interaction and Graphics (BIG) group, UK (Head: Pr. Sriram Subramanian)

  • We have strong relationships with Sriram Subramanian. This has led to joint paper publications, numerous visits and a co-supervision of a PhD thesis (Camille Jeunet)


  • Bordeaux Idex project "Conception de Système d'interfaces cerveau-ordinateur prenant en compte les facteurs humains afin d'optimiser l'apprentissage de l'utilisateur" for international PhD project

  • partners: Bordeaux Segalen University (Handicap & Système nerveux team), Bristol University (BIG team)

  • duration: October 2013 - September 2016


  • LIRA Stress and Relaxation project: LIfe-style Research Association, Lifestyle Management: Stress and Relaxation

  • Accord cadre Européen

  • Coordinator: Frederic Alexandre

  • Other partners: Philips (Netherlands), Fraunhofer (Germany), Inria teams Hybrid and Mimetic

  • Abstract: The Stress and Relaxation project aims at offering services to a user, at home or at work, to help this user evaluate and control his level of stress

  • duration: 2011 - 2021
