CATIE (Centre Aquitain des Technologies de l’Information et Electroniques), a non-profit organization created in 2014, is a technology transfer center specialized in digital technology. Its main mission is to support SMEs and intermediate size companies in their digital transformation and to help them adopt and integrate the related technologies.

Backed by a team of 40 employees (mostly PhDs and engineers), CATIE is closely connected with the local academic research centers it collaborates with on programs to prepare the technologies of tomorrow. Furthermore, CATIE works with regional companies, digital technologies experts (start-up to large companies…) and frequently participate in EU founded

Within its scope of services, CATIE shares its expertise but also human and material resources, that might be missing or undersized in the companies it works with, as well as a recognized industrial know-how in technologies integration to support their digital development.

CATIE offers an unique multidisciplinary approach based on 3 main competence areas: Human Factors & cognition, Data science (“Big Data”, Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain) and embedded electronics, each of which being supported by a dedicated department.

CATIE fulfils its missions by participating in research and transfer programs, but also by implementing open and collaborative “Technological Innovation Platforms”, i.e. experimental environment to develop and transfer new technologies to companies : 6TRON focuses on the Internet of Things while the two others address Artificial Intelligence (VANILLA) and Behavioural and Cognitive Assessments (PEAC²H) for a better integration of Human in the
acceptability of complex and innovative systems.

The Human-Centered Systems team is developing Peac²h to enable companies to better integrate Human being into complex and innovative systems by offering online services, tailor-made or turnkey assessment protocols and methodological tools, among other items.

The Algorithms and Data team has developed Vaniila to help companies access Artificial Intelligence by offering working and calculation environments including technological building bricks, use cases and tutorials to facilitate the understanding and implementation of these bricks.

The Cyber-Physical Systems has developed 6TRON to encourage and support companies in the development of their own electronic solutions for the Internet of Industrial Things.This platform was awarded in 2019 by the Embedded France professionals.
