Advice to national administrations and authorities
This expertise is widely recognized in France and internationally but also outside the scientific community.
Indeed, administrations and authorities regularly request the opinion of our scientists to advise them in their decision making on key issues of society where digital science plays a role.
At the local level, IRISA supports Rennes Métropole and the Brittany Region in their public data service initiatives (Open Data Rennes).
