A company’s everyday operations are often full of recurring tasks: selling a service, requesting paid time off, buying equipment, to name just a few examples. The start-up Lapala, incubated at IMT Atlantique and present at VivaTech 2023, allows SMEs to digitize these processes. The aim: help them go digital, save time and keep their teams […]

By continuously ensuring the seamless operation of the digital chain, data centers give off a considerable amount of heat and require additional energy to power their cooling systems. DENV-R, a start-up incubated at IMT Atlantique and present at VivaTech 2023, proposes a floating data center solution that uses water to cool itself, minimizing its impact […]

Surgical masks were widely used during the Covid-19 pandemic. To assess their effectiveness in real time, scientists at Mines Saint-Étienne have developed a smart mask, a device that collects data on the humidity of the mask and the wearer’s respiration. Moisture retention is often considered a factor that reduces mask filtration. For example, the WHO […]
