Jean-Bernard TITZJean-Bernard Titz, recent faculty member of IUM, was just elected President of the Telecom Valley Cluster.

Sophia Antipolis near Antibes, fifty kilometers away from Monaco is known for its competence in Telecommunication and IT justifying the name of Telecom Valley by analogy with California “Silicon Valley”:

According to “Invest in Cote d’Azur (April 29): It is “a non-profit association for the main IT organizations in Sophia Antipolis and its surrounding areas. The Telecom Valley is a network of large groups, SMEs, research and training bodies, facilitators, institutional partners and standards bodies. Working on projects, managed by volunteers and grouped into Commissions and Themes, the association stimulates technological innovation across the region and accelerates the adoption of best practices and the use of IT particularly in the fields of tourism, health and open source software.  With 110 members, it represents 15,000 employees across Sophia Antipolis and the PACA region. Its vision is to become the benchmark euro-Mediterranean community for the Internet, mobility and the use of information technology.”

Titz, a graduated from Ecole Centrale Marseille and a former IBM executive, is now a consultant, CEO of Dev-Help, in the field of innovation support in information technology.

A warm congratulation to Jean-Bernard honoring IUM by his nomination.
