The digital economy
New applications for information and communication technology have fuelled growth within the
digital industry and across France’s entire economy. Syntec Numérique promotes the development
of breakthrough applications that provide tangible benefits for users.
The digital revolution is sweeping industries of all kinds, from government, healthcare, and
education to Green IT and energy. Syntec Numérique is there to help manage change as new
applications change the face of the digital industry.
The future of the digital industry depends on the three pillars of education, training, and job
opportunities. Because labor laws are constantly changing, Syntec Numérique is committed to
ensuring that any new legislation takes into account the unique needs of the digital industry.

negotiate on their behalf with France’s industry regulators and labor organizations. Activities range
from lobbying to negotiating collective bargaining agreements on behalf of members.
