IDATE and the DigiWorld Institute

Since 1977, IDATE has been recognized, based on the capabilities of its specialized investigation teams, as a reliable resource for tracking telecom, Internet and media markets. With strong support from its members, represented by nearly 50 major players in the digital economy, the Institute, under the name of DigiWorld, has started a new phase in its development based on three lines of business:

  • IDATE Research, an independent observer whose vocation is to provide active surveillance of the digital economy, to collect pertinent data and offer reference analysis on the markets and innovations in the telecommunications, Internet and media markets, through a complete catalogue of reports and monitoring services.
  • IDATE Consulting, analysis and consulting capabilities. Our team of economists and engineers has established their credibility and their independence by completing hundreds of research assignments requested each year by the major industry players and public authorities.
  • DigiWorld Institute, a European forum open to the world. The DigiWorld Institute showcases all of IDATE's initiatives such as the DigiWorld Summit, the DigiWorld Yearbook and the monthly Clubs established in London, Paris and Brussels. It offers its members the opportunity to participate in collaborative research programmes on the industry's major future problems by mobilising external expert resources and its own teams.
