National Initiatives

Inria Project Labs

Arnaud Legrand is the leader of the HAC SPECIS project. The goal of the HAC SPECIS (High-performance Application and Computers: Studying PErformance and Correctness In Simulation) project is to answer methodological needs of HPC application and runtime developers and to allow to study real HPC systems both from the correctness and performance point of view. To this end, we gather experts from the HPC, formal verification and performance evaluation community. Inria Teams: AVALON, POLARIS, MYRIADS, SUMO, HIEPACS, STORM, MEXICO, VERIDIS.

Grenoble INP grant

Patrick Loiseau and Bary Pradelski received a grant from the Presidence of Grenoble INP that covers half of the funding of PhD student Dimitrios Moustakas to work on dynamic matching. This PhD is done in collaboration with Univ. Zurich (Heinrich Nax), which covers the rest.

DGA Grants

Patrick Loiseau and Panayotis Mertikopoulos received a grant from DGA that complements the funding of PhD student (Benjamin Roussillon) to work on game theoretic models for adversarial classification.

PGMO Projects

PGMO projects are supported by the Jacques Hadamard Mathematical Foundation (FMJH). Our project (HEAVY.NET) is focused on congested networks and their asymptotic properties.


Panayotis Mertikopoulos is co-PI of a PEPS I3A project: MixedGAN ("Mixed-strategy generative adversarial networks") (PI: R. Laraki, U. Dauphine).

Fondation Blaise Pascal

Project IAM (Informatique à la Main) funded by fondation Blaise Pascal (Jean-Marc Vincent).

MIAI @ Grenoble Alpes

MIAI @ Grenoble Alpes (Multidisciplinary Institute in Artificial Intelligence) is the 3IA institute of Grenoble that was selected by the government in 2019. With the MIAI institute, Patrick Loiseau is the co-holder of a chair on “Explainable and Responsible AI” of which Nicolas Gast and Bary Pradelski are also members; and Panayotis Mertikopoulos is a member of the “Optimization and Learning” chair.


  • Nicolas Gast obtained funding from the ANR JCJC for the project REFINO. 250k euros. Duration: 4 years

  • Bary Pradelski (PI), P. Mertikopoulos and P. Loiseau obtained funding from the ANR for the project ALIAS (Adaptive Learning for Interactive Agents and Systems). This is a bilateral PRCI (collaboration internationale) project joint with Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). The Singapore team consists of G. Piliouras and G. Panageas.

  • ORACLESS (2016–2021)

    ORACLESS is an ANR starting grant (JCJC) coordinated by Panayotis Mertikopoulos. The goal of the project is to develop highly adaptive resource allocation methods for wireless communication networks that are provably capable of adapting to unpredictable changes in the network. In particular, the project will focus on the application of online optimization and online learning methodologies to multi-antenna systems and cognitive radio networks.

  • CONNECTED (2016–2019)

    CONNECTED is an ANR Tremplin-ERC (T-ERC) grant coordinated by Patrick Loiseau. The goal of the project is to work on several game-theoretic models involving learning agents and data revealed by strategic agents in response to the learning algorithms, so as to derive better learning algorithms for such special data.
