Until 2013, he headed the Economics and Management Research Unit (UMR X-CNRS) and the "Innovation and regulation of digital services" chair he founded in partnership with Polytechnique, Telecom ParisTech and Orange.

In particular, he chaired the evaluation mission for the Plan France Très Haut Débit, commissioned by the French government and the European Commission.
