The ELSAT research program addresses the issues involved in sustainable transportation and mobility. Within ELSAT, INOCS is involved on two projects devoted to hybrid optimization methods in logistics and to city logistics in collaboration with LAMIH (Université de Valenciennes), LGI2A (Université d'Artois) and LEOST (IFSTTAR). ELSAT is supported by the CPER 2015-2020 (State-Region Contract).


ValueBugs is a citizen participatory research project, funded by INNOVIRIS (2018-2020). The objective of ValueBugs is to collectively develop a method for decentralized insect production in cities while enhancing the value of food waste on a small scale. In practical terms, peelings are consumed by insect larvae that have reached the end of their development and offer many promising outlets: feed for hens, farmed fish, pets... and much more! This new, totally innovative sector will be a new tool to be put in the hands of every citizen: we must therefore imagine it collectively.
