  • A selection of past and ongoing projects

    Years: Since 2013

    Sector: Nuclear technology

    Nuclear energy is a high-tech, competitive sector that is closely regulated by national authorities. Industry and public research centres collaborate on the definition and implementation of technological roadmaps to respond to the sector’s safety and competitive requirements.

    LGI developed and deployed a platform based on open innovation concepts, phase-gate development and corporate social media. It allows all players in the value chain to bring about and develop collaborative projects targeting the needs of industry and public authorities.

    Years: 2011-2012

    Sector: Education

    A major institute of a historic French university needed a showcase that measures up to its reputation and international imprint: its obsolete website hurt its image with an international audience, mostly students.

    A tailored audit, consulting and implementation mission on the technological state of the art of their website was performed by LGI: the new showcase now counts 3 million page views per year.

    Years: Since 2006

    Sector: Education

    Each year training institutes manage the selection and follow up of their students with a heavy and costly process.

    LGI developed and deployed a web portal for the institute and its students, which allows the online management of applications, payments and academic curriculums. This tailored tool includes back-office automating processes for: the organisation of exams, inputting grades into the system and sending mail. Each year, we facilitate the dematerialisation of tens of thousands of applications, potentially saving several thousand euros for our clients.

    Years: Since 2008

    Sector: Aeronautics, Space, Security & Defence

    As part of its sector-specific regulatory missions, a public authority was looking to professionalise its anomaly tracking process with a unique tool that replaces a series of business applications.

    LGI developed a portal allowing centralising access to tools and data in order to track and address anomalies in real time.

    Years: 2012

    Sector: Health

    A coherent information system is key in the extensively-regulated public health environment. In the frame of a wide-ranging unification programme, LGI contributed to the definition of a national health facility’s new system architecture, which allowed to upgrade their information system while guaranteeing the security of sensitive data.
