The French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) is among the world’s leading research institutions. Its scientists explore the living world, matter, the Universe, and the functioning of human societies in order to meet the major challenges of today and tomorrow. Internationally recognised for the excellence of its scientific research, the CNRS is a reference in the world of research and development, as well as for the general public.

Role of institution in the project

CNRS will participate in WP6 (T6.2 and T6.5) in defining a common framework for the deployment of tools within EUCAIM and will study the possibility of integrating the Virtual Imaging Platform (VIP) in the larger EUCAIM ecosystem. Through VIP, CNRS can integrate containerized tools, deploy and execute them on computing resources through a uniform execution interface. VIP is already connected to EGI and benefits from computing resources in the biomed VO. EUCAIM tools integrated in VIP may also benefit from these resources. Within the EUCAIM project, CNRS will particularly study the technical requirements, limitations and possible solutions regarding data-privacy.

Sorina Pop

Sorina Pop received her Engineering degree in Telecommunications in 2007 and her Ph.D degree (on exploiting heterogeneous distributed systems for Monte-Carlo simulations in the medical field) in 2013, both from the National Institute for Applied Sciences of Lyon (INSA-Lyon, France). Since 2007 she is a CNRS research engineer at the Creatis laboratory in Lyon, France. She is currently in charge of the VIP platform, which counts more than 1400 registered users. Her activity is focused on optimizing the execution of medical image processing applications on heterogeneous distributed systems. In the last few years, Sorina Pop has been particularly interested in enhancing open and reproducible science through her VIP activities, but also through other projects such as the EU OpenAIRE-Connect and EGI-ACE projects and the France Life Imaging (FLI) platform, where she is also member of the steering committee of the Information Analysis and Management node. Since 2022 she is the coordinator of the French ANR ReproVIP (ANR-21-CE45-0024-01) project. In March 2021, she received the CNRS Médaille de Cristal for having contributed to the excellence of French research.

Axel Bonnet

Axel Bonnet received his Engineering degree in Computing in 2011 (from Grenoble INP - ENSIMAG). After a few experiences in IT companies where he improved his skills, he joined in 2016 the CNRS as a research engineer at the Creatis laboratory in Lyon, France. For 7 years he has been the main developer and the architect of the VIP platform, and he has been in charge of many new features including a REST API, interoperability with storage platforms, automatic deployment, etc.
