His re-election demonstrates the confidence and the satisfaction of the Cluster towards Mr. Ollivier.

“We are entering the second phase of the Cluster with a new team and an ambitious program for the next three years. As a representative of the cluster, particularly in this economically challenging period, one of my top priorities will be to strongly support the small and medium-sized companies that are part of the cluster,” declared Mr. Ollivier.
The Media and Networks cluster consists of large companies (such as Orange and SFR), small and medium-sized companies (such as Ekinops, Teamcast, Sodius, and Satimo) and universities or research organizations (such as CNRS, INRIA, Rennes 1 University, Telecom Bretagne, and Supelec).
