ALPHA - Route des Lasers & des Hyperfréquences (ALPHA-RLH) is a newly formed technology cluster specializing in photonics, lasers and microwave technologies. It is the result of a merger on 1st January 2017 between two French competitiveness clusters, Route des Lasers and Elopsys.
Based in Bordeaux and Limoges, the cluster is focused on 2 technological fields: Photonics-Laser (laser sources and processes, optical components, instrumentation) and Microwave (integrated electronics, radiocommunication systems, radar systems) and 4 strategic applications:
- Health (medical devices and autonomy): imaging, diagnosis and therapy techniques, technological solutions for people who have lost their independence,
- Communication and security: components or systems for data transmission, data and network security,
- Aerospace and defence: embedded optical/optoelectronic systems, innovative solutions for shaping materials, communication, navigation, and lighting,
- Energy and smart building: solar technology, lighting solutions, energy efficiency, energy storage, connecting or connected devices for buildings.
Digital technology represents a cross-disciplinary activity. It covers digital interfaces, image processing and synthesis, data security and sharing, along with intelligent connecting objects.
Through aggregate skills and expertise, ALPHA-RLH aims to become the French reference cluster in photonics, lasers and microwave technologies. It will enable the cluster to bring out innovation collaborative projects and enrich the support provided to SME members exporting to global markets.
The M-Sec and Fed4IoT projects will organize next Wednesday 29th of September 2021 at 09h00-11h00am CET (Brussels Time) its joint final project event on “Advanced technologies for hyper-connected societies”.
Sister-projects, both M-Sec and Fed4IoT aimed at research, develop and test advanced technologies combining security, IoT, cloud and bigdata, and interoperable technologies of IoT devices/platforms in the context of smart cities.
After the highly successful EuroCybersec2018 organized by Prof. Erol Gelenbe (IITIS-PAN & Lab I3S, Université Côte d’Azur), whose proceedings with Springer enjoyed over 140,000 downloads, IoTAC will organize the EuroCybersec2021 Workshop in Nice, France, chaired by Prof. Gelenbe with the help of a Program Committee of experts. The deadline for paper submissions is September 17, 2021.
