French Single Interministerial Fund-Regions 21st call for projects

Cluster activites


Minalogic announced that five R&D projects certified by the cluster have been selected to receive funding under the French Single Interministerial Fund-Regions 21st call for projects. The five projects, which represent a total budget of €17.9 million, will receive €8.4 million in subsidies from the French and local governments.

Since Minalogic was established in 2005, a total of 128 projects backed by the French Single Interministerial Fund and approved for funding have been certified by the cluster. These projects represent total R&D spending of €770 million, with €304 million in government subsidies. A total of nearly 450 projects have been certified by Minalogic. Overall these projects represent more than €2 billion in R&D expenditures, €794 million of which came from the French and local governments.


The five projects selected to receive funding



Musculoskeletal disorders (especially those affecting the hip, knee, and back) have become a public health concern. Surgeons currently use simple planar X-ray images projected onto a screen to guide them. Emerging 3D imaging and virtual reality technologies, when combined with the capacity of X-rays to see inside the human body, represent huge potential in shaping the surgical techniques of the future. The 3D4Carm project will develop a mobile arc-shaped X-ray machine with high-quality, real-time tomographic image reconstruction right in the operating room.

  • Partners: SurgiQual Institute (Isère) (project lead), TIMC-IMAG (Isère), Thales Electron Devices (Isère), DMS-Apelem (Gard), CIC-IT/Grenoble University Medical Center (Isère), B2OA (Ile-de-France)
  • Budget: €4.8 million
  • Topic: Personalized medicine and chronic and infectious diseases



Continued advances in mobile devices and the emergence of new uses for these devices are currently facing a major stumbling block: the power supply. The Ampeers-2 project will develop a self-powering system for smart mobile devices. The project’s main innovations will be a large energy-storage capacity, fast charge-discharge cycling, and a lifespan ten times longer than what is currently possible. The system developed will also be compatible with thin, flexible mobile devices.

The markets initially targeted will be so-called “active” mobile objects such as bank cards with integrated displays (for secure payment) and medical patches for secure, managed transdermal drug delivery.

  • Budget: €3.8 million
  • Project co-certified by the Solutions Communicantes Sécurisées cluster (lead)
  • Topic: Energy storage and networks



The emerging fields of printed electronics and plastronics hold particular promise, especially for IoT applications. The Elippse project will focus on developing an innovative technology that combines the benefits of printed electronics and traditional plastronics on 3D plastic components with complex shapes. The technology developed will initially target energy management applications in the automotive, medical, robotics, and other industries.

  • Partners: Schneider Electric (Isère) (lead), Arc en Ciel Sérigraphie (Loire), VFP Ink Technologies (Gard), Plastiform (Drôme), Centre Technique de la Plasturgie et des Composites (Ain), Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Saint-Etienne (Bouches-du-Rhône), INSA LaMCoS (Rhône)
  • Budget: €2.6 million
  • Project co-certified with Plastipolis (lead)
  • Topic: Basic technology


Studio Virtuel (Virtual Studio)

The Studio Virtuel (Virtual Studio) project will develop a cloud-based suite of flexible professional services that let users rapidly implement all of the components of a radio recording and production studio in any location and for any length of time.

The goal is to reduce the total cost of ownership of radio production studios and facilitate the emergence of new uses.

The project will result in a pay-per-use production, distribution, and infrastructure service that can be set up very quickly with an initial investment of next to nothing.

  • Partners: Digigram (Isère) (lead), two manufacturing companies (identities confidential), LIG-ERODS (Isère)
  • Budget: €3.7 million
  • Project co-certified with Imaginove (lead)
  • Topic: Digital technologies and benevolent systems



The Wise project will develop a system to “see,” identify, classify, and compare smells. A mobile optical reader developed by Aryballe Technologies will be used to generate images from the gases present in olfactory molecules. There are many applications for the technology; the aim of this project is to validate certain applications in healthcare and wellness.

  • Partners: Aryballe Technologies (Isère) (lead), CEA-INAC (Isère), GIPSA-Lab (Isère), GIP Mind (Haute-Savoie), ARMINES (Centre LGEI Mines-Alès) (Gard), Prestodiag (Val-de-Marne), Cemag Consulting (Ile-de-France), SEB (Côte-d’Or)
  • Budget: €4.1 million
  • Project co-certified with Vitagora
  • Topic: Digital technologies and benevolent systems
