Inria, the French National Institute for computer science and applied mathematics, promotes scientific excellence for technology transfer and society. Graduates from the world’s top universities, Inrias’s 2.700 employees rise to the challenges of digital sciences. Research at Inria is organized in “project teams” which bring together researchers with complementary skills to focus on specific scientific projects. With this open, agile model, Inria is able to explore original approaches with its partner in industry and academia and provide an efficient response to the multidisciplinary and application challenges of the digital transformation. The source of many innovations that add value and create jobs, Inria transfers expertise and research results to companies (start-ups, SMEs and major groups) in fields as diverse as healthcare, transport, energy, communications, security and privacy protection, smart cities and the factory of the future.

The Inria MOKAPLAN project team’s main focus is to develop and apply numerical methods in the field of optimal transportation. MOKAPLAN is a joint team with CNRS and CEREMADE at Universite Paris Dauphine. The team is composed of 6 permanent researchers who are specialists of non-linear PDEs and variational problems, non-linear optimization and numerical methods. The team is a world leader in Numerical Optimal Transportation from the point of view of applied mathematics.
