As a researcher, I feel that the networking gap between academia and enterprises is growing, mean-while science and business being tightly knot / inseparable entities. Therefore, I am organising a two-day workshop event to explore how to bridge this gap and discuss ways to shape it for the future, so that expert scientists and/or future policy makers can walk this road safely.

The main value of the work-shop is to create an efficient network and enhance already existing ties among organizations in Paris Saclay Ecosystem, with an expectation of it to become the main center for training and research within the technology cluster, future silicon valley Europa: Université Paris-Saclay.

Speakers from Université Paris-Saclay, Thales, CEA and SATT will share views on the Challenges for Industry and Academia Paris Saclay Ecosystem. The most relevant and cutting edge information will be discussed at several parallel running sessions on entrepreneurship along with research and innovation trainings.

Innovative solutions for human factor management

Year 2017, 38000 airliners daily flights, 7 billions passengers, not a death.

How did the aviation industry got there?

In the Many factors contributing to this excellent result there is a major one, it is the work done on the human being. Thanks to the in-depth knowledge of human functioning and the impact of this human functioning on its environment, the aviation industry has been able to put in place innovative concepts aimed at improving safety and efficiency. For example, in aviation, mistake is considered as the price to pay for human intelligence, so it is a prerequisite for innovation and improved safety.

In order to create an environment leading innovation, with efficient teams, any industry should take advantage of the benefits of civil aviation trainings.




The « phygital » : Interaction between Homo Sapiens and digital communication

Thanks to internet, everyone has become the node of a huge network, on the brain model and its neuronal cartography; however, were are not controlling everything.

Firstly, if we access our knowledge we don’t access our machines. How to implement new methods grounded in a collaborative economy in order to understand our machines better and then to transform the global phygital space for the best?

Secondly, within this digital revolution we are invited to use our body and our brain, to involve our senses and our feelings in a different manner. How does it impact on our usages? And even further, in an evolutionary standpoint, what biological functions would become vestigial and others therefore would appear necessary?

In this presentation, she investigates the various bits of the digital revolution’ human-project’ new communication space, the techno-communication and the human body as a living material, taking into account the limits of its malleability.

  • Questions and answers.

Time required: 30 minutes





Innovation: what is it?

The political push for research and innovation is accompanied by a great hype on technological disruption, mostly from STEM. A missing piece of information in the current debate is that technological innovation is hardly disruptive. In fact, disruptive innovation is brought about by solving new problems with existing capabilities. Researchers from many different fields have the competences and skills to be disruptively innovative, with no need to discover or develop new technologies. In this short talk, I will give a brief example on how new business models successfully disrupt the marketplace.




Mobile programming for Android

The most significant part of mobile operating system belongs to Android. It will be described the basic of Android programming. Creating a new Android Studio Project. Explanation of the difference between the target SDK and the minimum SDK. Creating User Interface. Creating List items in Android. And installation of the Android application into emulator or real device.
