IRCICA : Research Institute on software and hardware devices for information and Advanced communication, is a Service and Research unit (USR-3380) associating the CNRS and Universy of Lille.
Based on a hotel for projects structure IRCICA develops since 10 years a multidisciplinary research to imagine and create responsible technologies for information and communication.
The way of working of IRCICA enables to gather in a same building researchers (CNRS or university) with complementary knowledge and competence to face the great scientific and society challenges with complementary approaches and/or interdisciplinary co-design since the beginning of the projects.
4 research items are considered:
- Connected object
- Tactile and gestural interaction
- Photonics ,
- Bioinspired architectures for information treatment
For this 4 items IRCICA develops multidisciplinary or innovative researches with a strong support of technological platforms at the state of the art level in the field of photonics (Fibertech’lille), advanced communication systems (SigmaCOM) and virtual an immersive reality (PIRVI).
IRCICA hosts about 125 searchers (from CNRS and university), PhD students, engineers and technicians coming from the 4 partners laboratories CRIStAL, IEMN, L2EP and PhLAM
