ARMINES is a non-profit organisation created in accordance with the 1901 law and covered by the law of 18th April 2006, enabling public higher educational and research establishments to entrust their contractual research activities to private organisations. ARMINES provides the human and material resources in the joint research centres of each partner school including the Henri Fayol Institute, joint research centre of ARMINES and École des Mines de Saint-Étienne (ARMINES-Fayol). The FAYOL research centre is one of the departments of the École des Mines de Saint-Étienne (EMSE). The laboratory has participated in numerous European projects such as CODESNET, COPILOTE, SCALE or ITEA2-SEAS projects. Institut Henri Fayol has privileged relationships with France Télécom, Schneider Electric, CEA, EDF, Elf, Total, Péchiney, Comhurex and Eurocopter. The team involved in this project is the ISCOD team (Open, Distributed and Cooperative Informatics) which will bring skills in semantic web technologies and knowledge representation. ISCOD team is directed by Pr. Olivier Boissier and is composed of 10 permanent members and 11 PhD candidates. ARMINES-Fayol is the coordinator of the project and leader of Tasks 1, 4 and 6.
Antidot is a software vendor specialised in data enrichment, data integration and semantic search. In addition to its core technology offerings, Antidot provides solutions that are designed and packaged to meet even the most advanced business needs with unmatched technical performance: AFS@Store for powering search and navigation at e-commerce and catalogue sites, AFS@Publishing for content publishers, Fluid Topics for publishing technical documentation online and reducing support costs. With more than 150 clients, Antidot owes its growth and success since 1999 to its policy of innovation, investing more than half its revenue in R&D. Antidot has been several times member or leader of research projects: ANR-RNTL Eiffel (2005), ANR-MDCO Cartec (2007), FUI Samar (2009) and ANR-Contint Accordys (2011). Antidot will be leading Task 5, being responsible for most of the implementation parts of the project.
ELICO is one of the largest research team in Information and Communication Sciences in France (39 permanent members, 40 PhD). It is a federation of research teams of 3 universities (Lyon 1, Lyon 2, Lyon 3) and 2 national schools (Sciences Po Lyon, ENSSIB). The specificity of ELICO is to link both informational and communicational approaches to study socio-technical processes of appropriation, of innovation. We use social sciences methodologies as survey with semi-structured interviews, focus group, observations, mixed with informatics tools of analysis of qualitative data which permit to enlarge the kind and the mass of data. We are very familiar into discourses analysis, practices observation and analysis about the ICT and the “document numérique” as Roger T. Pédauque defines it. Thanks to a regional grant, ELICO organises a discussion seminar on open data (ARC6 2012-2014). With a social and strategic approach, this seminar discusses the face and role of the public actors and data providers and the place of the users and citizens. ELICO has close relationship with L’Institut des Sciences de l’Homme, Le Grand Lyon, la BPI (Bibliothèque Publique d’Information, Paris), la BML (Bibliothèque Municipale de Lyon), the town archives of Saint-Etienne. Directed by Isabelle Garcin-Marrou, the team is composed of 39 permanent members and 40 PhD candidates. ELICO is the leader of Task 2.
HiKoB is a leading provider of wireless and scalable instrumentation systems that generate strategic data and information on physical resources and assets to feed information systems. HiKoB wireless instrumentation systems are at the heart of mission-critical applications for smart cities, such as intelligent transportation systems (ITS), intelligent parking, structural health monitoring (SHM), and protection-and-security systems. HiKoB’s objective throughout this project is to develop its expertise in data management, representation and exploitation in order to design and validate products and technological components that will be marketed for Smart Cities & Environment applications. HiKoB will lead Task 3 relative to the sensor infrastructure and data streams and bring into the project its expertise on wireless sensor networks and ITS and SHM applications. HiKoB will also participate to the implementation effort and build a platform with application raw data streams taken from real world case studies and applications.
