Research is essential to Institut Mines-Télécom Business School. That is why university lecturers and researchers share their work throughout different research chairs.
The Smart Objects and Social Networks Chair (SOSN), carried by Télécom Ecole de Management for three years (2015-2018), is composed of multidisciplinary researchers (marketing, computer science). SOSN works on the problematics of social networks and smart objects on our society. The Chair is led by Christine Balagué, Head of Social Networks Chair at TEM (2011-2014) and researcher at Télécom Ecole de Management.
The Chair Values and Policies of Personal Information was launched by the Institut Mines Télécom in April 2013. The Chair aims to help companies, citizens and public authorities in their reflection on the collection, use and sharing of personal information, such as information about individuals (their personal lives, their professional activities, their digital identities, their contributions on social networks, etc.) including those collected by smart objects that surround them (smartphones, smart meters, etc …)
The main objectives of the Good in Tech Chair include creating new knowledge around 4 main areas of research, whilst contributing to the communication of this knowledge in both academic and pedagogical formats as well as to business organisations, decision-makers, law-makers and the general public.
