The strategic board
The strategic committee replaces, as of January 1, 2021, the supervisory committee, which had sixteen members. It is composed of six members, representatives of the Université Paris-Saclay and three national research organizations:
Jean-Noël Patillon is a graduate of the Supélec engineering school and holds a PhD in solid state physics from the Solid State Physics Laboratory of the University of Paris XI. From 1984 to 1996, he joined LEP (Laboratoire d'Electronique Philips), and became the head of the Optoelectronics group. In 1996, he joined Motorola Labs Paris and headed the "Broadband System and Technology" and "Molecular Electronics Research" laboratories, which address the fields of short-range systems (WLAN, WPAN) and heterogeneous networks, cognitive radio and SDR. He is involved in various projects such as @HOM, Broadway, UCAN, WINNER, PULSERS, FIREWORKS, E2R/E2RII, E3.
In January 2009, he joined the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) and became the head of the "Communication Systems" laboratory of the CEA List Institute, working on E2E and M2M communication systems and solutions. He contributed to the setting up of the Nano-INNOV operation and the SystemX Technological Research Institute. He was appointed Scientific Director of CEA List and Deputy Director of the CEA List Carnot Institute in 2013. He has been acting director of the CEA List institute since September 2018.
Paul-Henry Cournède graduated from Centrale Paris (class of 97) and from the University of Cambridge (Master of Advanced Study in Mathematics). He then completed a thesis in applied mathematics between the CEA and Centrale Paris, a post-doctorate at INRIA Sophia-Antipolis, and then became a teacher-researcher at the school in 2002.
He is now a Professor in the Department of Mathematics and has been the head of the MICS laboratory since 2016. He leads the Biomathematics research team on the analysis of biological systems and data, with strong applications in oncology in the context of the partnership with Gustave Roussy.
He is also a member of the Federation of Mathematics, of the CentraleSupélec Board of Studies, of the Scientific Council of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Paris-Saclay, of the Scientific and Pedagogical Committee of the Inserm Pfizer Innovation School, and of the ANR Joint Laboratories Committee.
Olivier Cappé is specialized in various aspects of machine learning, statistics and signal processing. In the distant past (1990s), he started in the field of speech and sound processing. More recently (2000s), he has contributed to Bayesian methods, Markov chain Monte Carlo methods and some applications in natural language processing. Most of his recent work (2010s) is related to online learning and multi-armed bandit models.
Since September 2021, Olivier Cappé is affiliated with the newly created Data Science Center (CSD) at the ENS.
He is also deputy scientific director of the Information Sciences and Technologies Division (INS2I) of the CNRS, where he is in charge of actions in the field of information sciences in the broad sense (on topics such as artificial intelligence, cybersecurity and quantum computing).
A specialist in data science and machine learning, Nicolas Vayatis leads a research group that develops work in modeling and predictive algorithms, network science, signal processing, in constant interface with industry and the biomedical field.
Jean-Yves Berthou has a doctorate in computer science and is an academic trained in research in the field of simulation and high-performance scientific computing. He has worked for ten years in public research organizations and nearly twenty years in industry, mainly in R&D at EDF. He has spent the last four years implementing an innovation dynamic and approach at EDF's Transformation and Operational Efficiency Division, which has resulted in the industrialization of more than 250 innovations and the contractualization of some 60 partnerships with startups.
From 2011 to 2015, Jean-Yves Berthou was the head of the Digital and Mathematical Department (NuMa) of the French National Research Agency, in charge of organizing the selection, funding and monitoring of research projects as well as the establishment of European and international collaborations.
From 1997 to 2011, he held various positions in the research department of EDF, EDF R&D. He was successively researcher, project leader, manager and then took the direction of the Simulation program and the Information Technology program of EDF R&D. These different missions naturally led him to collaborate with Inria, notably when he was a member of the institute's evaluation commission between 2008 and 2011.
For the past fifteen years, Jean-Yves Berthou has been regularly called upon by the European Commission to provide expertise, particularly in the areas of high-performance computing, open science and research and innovation strategies.
