Founded in 1991 and located in the Technopole of Sophia Antipolis, Eurecom is an internationally recognised engineering school. It brings together academic partners, including Institut Mines Telecom, as well as companies such as Orange, ST Microelectronics, BMW, IABG and Symantec. Teaching and research activities are organised around three areas: digital security, communication systems and data science.
The Government of Monaco has been an institutional member of Eurecom through its National Financing Corporation since January 2013. Initially, the partnership focused on digital security and networks, in cooperation with Monaco Telecom, also a member of the Institute.
Today, while pursuing this cooperation in the field of security, Eurecom supports the Government in the development of a Smart City project around policies on mobility and the deployment of high-performance infrastructure to facilitate innovation. The Institute is also involved in cooperation between the Government and the Nice-Côte d’Azur Metropolis with the ambition of building a laboratory of mobility by involving other members of the Institute, such as Orange and Monaco Telecom.
