Les AFTERS by Pôle Excellence Cyber
In order to attract new partners, our chairholder Marc-Oliver Pahl pitched the chair in the Pôle Excellence Cyber (PEC) after work event. The “afters” happened on Tuesday 21 March 2023 in the heart of the Mabilay totem building in Rennes at the La French Tech Rennes – St Malo POOOL. This was a great opportunity to meet old and new friends in the PEC ecosystem.
The PEC Afters
The concept is simple: new members were invited to give a pitch, in a powerful way, in order to present themselves to all the members of the cluster. About ten members spoke throughout the evening.
About the Pôle d’Excellence Cyber
Initiated in 2014 by the Ministry of the Armed Forces (cyber defense pact) and the Regional Council of Brittany (future pact) with a national scope and an objective of international influence, the Cyber Cluster of Excellence relies on the academic fabric of universities and Grandes Ecoles, and on the innovation of CNRS and INRIA laboratories with national partners or other European territories.
About the chair Cybersecurity of Critical Networked Infrastructures (cyberCNI.fr)
The Cyber CNI Chair at IMT Atlantique does research, innovation, and teaching in the field of cybersecurity for critical networked infrastructures. Such infrastructures include industrial processes, financial systems, building automation, energy networks, water treatment plants, or transportation.
The chair covers the full stack from sensors and actuators and their signals over industrial control systems, distributed services at the edge or cloud, to user interfaces with collaborative Mixed Reality, and security policies. The chair currently hosts 9 PhD students, 4 PostDocs, 11 Professors, 1 engineer, and 1 internship student.
The chair runs a large testbed that enables applied research together with the industry partners. The industry partners of the current third funding round are Airbus, BNP Paribas, EDF, and SNCF. The chaire is located in Brittany, France. Brittany is the cybersecurity region number 1 in France. The chair Cyber CNI is strongly embedded in the cybersecurity ecosystem through its partnerships with the Pôle d’Excellence Cyber (PEC) and the Brittany Region.
The chair provides a unique environment for cybersecurity research with lots of development possibilities.
