You may read in the link below the Straits Times article about the CREATE Symposium 2023, that happened on 10 July. 

Together with the cover photo representing the DesCartes Augmented Marina Bay Twin (Deputy Prime Minister Mr Heng Swee Keat with Prof Paco Chinesta (DesCartes Program Director), Prof Antoine Petit (CEO of CNRS) and Dr Julien Castet (Head of Research for Immersion), you may find at the bottom of this article two paragraphs:

– One dedicated to DesCartes : 


This project hopes to create intelligent modelling systems for infrastructure management and urban planning such as traffic management, by combining existing data and artificial intelligence. This includes flying drones throughout the city to model the environment based on factors like wind speed and direction, or air pollution.

 – another one dedicated to CALIPSO:

The Calipso Project

Researchers are developing a 3D imaging microscope to help hospitals create personalised medicines or drug screenings for patients. The microscope enables the 3D reconstruction of the cellular organisation and quantitative measurement organoids, which are three-dimensional lab cultures composed of the different cell types in a particular organ. It mimics the function and biology of the organ, for example, in reaction to drug treatment. The Calipso system can image organoids, which are half to twice the thickness of a hair, 50 to 200 times faster than current commercial approaches.
