IoTize™ was originally a collaborative research and development project aimed at optimizing, securing and facilitating the use of this promising technology. This project consortium regroups leading companies and laboratories in digital security, embedded components and radio frequency technologies. These partners address all facets of IoT implementation from cloud-level services and security, to RF technology implementation, board-level security and manufacturing.
The IoTize™ project also includes a panel of participating integrator companies. These designers and manufacturers of industrial and consumer products provide input on IoTize™ specifications. All partners and participants work in collaboration to ensure that the IoTize™ solutions respond to the widest range of requirements for connecting products easily and securely to public or dedicated networks.
The IoTize™ project is recognized and supported by two of France’s leading technology clusters; Minalogic (Grenoble) and Pole SCS (Aix-en-Provence).

ISEN Ecole d'Ingenieurs-Toulon is a post-secondary engineering school and R&D laboratory established in Toulon in 1991.
Its R&D activities are organized around six domains:
- Smart Cities & Connected Devices (Digital Cities, IoT, Energy/Smart Grid, Contactless, payment systems, image & signal processing, ambient intelligence)
- Technologies for marine world (Underwater Acoustics, Communications underwater)
- Healthcare Technologies (Robotics disability, Biomedical and biometric Electronics, Micro-technologies for health)
- Micro & Nanotechnology (Micro and Nanoelectronics, Nanoscience, Flexible Electronics)
- Methodologies and technologies for Learning and Innovation (Co-design, creativity, learning by doing, E-learning, MOOC)
- Socio-economy of collective creativity and innovation processes (co-designing innovation with end-users, open innovation networks, open innovation spaces (Fab Labs, Co-working spaces…), intermediaries & brokers)
Since 2000, many research activities have been conducted jointly with the National Center for Scientific Research (IM2NP (UMR CNRS 6242), LSIS (UMR CNRS 7296), LEST (UMR CNRS 7317)).
LIG (the Laboratoire Informatique de Grenoble) activities encompass four key scientific domains; computing infrastructure, software, and the relationship between and treatment of data.
Via these four domains, the LIG addresses challenges in six key application areas: embedded software, information security, intelligent buildings, “open enterprise”, computation for science and technology, software for education, leisure and the arts.
