Scientific Council

The Scientific Council is an advisory body whose purpose is to make recommendations to the CEO on the Group’s research policy and provide information on the way in which the scientific community views how Orange and the wider telecoms sector is changing.



Each advisor is committed to helping our Group identify technological changes and formulate opinions on Orange’s research and innovation approach, on the chosen topics and on how this compares globally in terms of quality. The advisors must express their judgements on Orange’s major technical and scientific options.
