Institute 3IA Côte d'Azur

The 3IA Côte d'Azurhttp://univ-cotedazur.fr/institutes/3IA/home is one of the four "Interdisciplinary Institutes of Artificial Intelligence" that were created in France in 2019. Its ambition is to create an innovative ecosystem that is influential at the local, national and international levels, and a focal point of excellence for research, education and the world of AI.

Epione is heavily involved in this institute since its 5 permanents researchers (N. Ayache, H. Delingette, M. Lorenzi, M. Sermesant and X.Pennec) are chair holders in this institute, and N. Ayache is its scientific director.

Collaboration with national hospitals

The Epione-project team collaborates with the following 3 French IHU (University Hospital Institute): the IHU-Strasbourg (Pr J. Marescaux and L. Soler) on image-guided surgery, the IHU-Bordeaux (Pr M. Haïssaguere and Pr P. Jaïs) on cardiac imaging and modeling and the IHU-Pitié Salpétrière (Dr. O. Colliot and S. Durrleman) on neuroimaging.

We also have long term collaborations with the CHU Nice and Centre Antoine Lacassagne in Nice.
