Our ambition is to innovate for the common good by driving major innovations in three domains: hypermedia, networks & security and e-health. Discover b<>com in 90 seconds thanks to this key facts and figures video.
Through its innovations, the b<>com Institute of Research and Technology (IRT), founded in late 2012, is contributing to the European digital transformation.
Its 230 researchers are developing tools, products, and services that make everyday life easier. They focus on two fields of research: the hypermedia (ultra high-definition images, 3D sound, smart content, virtual and augmented reality, etc.) and more agile ultra-high-speed networks (cloud, cyber-security, ultra-high-speed mobile, network resiliency, Internet of Things, etc.).
Among the many fields of application for these technologies, e-health allows b<>com to take part in the digital revolution of the medical system. This is a priority field of application, at the intersection of the Institute's network and hypermedia expertise.
The IRT, which came about from a public/private partnership, brings together top experts from industry and academia at its Rennes campus, and its sites in Paris, Brest, and Lannion.
Certified in 2012 by the global cluster Images & Réseaux, it is supported by the French government's Investissements dAvenir program, and locally by the region of Brittany, Rennes Métropole, Lannion Trégor Communauté, and Brest Métropole.
