Key elements of the project

Goaland is leading an R&D project in partnership with École Centrale de Lille (graduate engineering school)

This partnership has already given rise to two separate R&D projects

The GlorIA project: from 2017 to 2019, 15 engineering students worked on the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in product information management.

The PIMalaya project: 12 engineering students are currently working on new uses for PIM software, a project focusing on UX (User Experience).
