The Institut national de recherche en informatique et en automatique (INRIA) is a French national research institution focusing on computer science, control theory and applied mathematics. Created in 1967 at Rocquencourt near Paris, INRIA (The National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control) is a public scientific and technological establishment (EPST ) under the double supervision of the French Research Ministry and the Ministry of Economy, Finance and Industry .
Research in Computer Science
INRIA does both theoretical and applied research in computer science. In the process, it has produced many widely used programs. Indeed, it has designed CaML, a language from the ML family, and developed both the Caml Light and OCaml implementations. It has also developed Bigloo , a Scheme implementation, and Scilab, a numerical computation software package similar to MATLAB.
It has 6 research units:
- INRIA Futurs (Lille, Saclay , Bordeaux) http://www-futurs.inria.fr/
- INRIA Lorraine (LORIA - in association with CNRS and local universities) http://www.loria.fr/INRIA/
- INRIA Rennes (IRISA - in association with CNRS and local universities) http://www.irisa.fr/
- INRIA Rhône-Alpes (near Grenoble) http://www.inrialpes.fr/
- INRIA Rocquencourt (a suburb of Paris) http://www-rocq.inria.fr/
- INRIA Sophia-Antipolis (near Nice) http://www-sop.inria.fr/
and also contributes to academic research teams outside of those centres.
