PARIS -- Today, Altran and Alcatel-Lucent announced that they have formed an industrial partnership project to create an expertise and telecoms services centre in the area of Nantes. As part of the project, approximately 170 engineers specialised in 4G technology at Alcatel-Lucent’s Orvault site located in the West of France would be integrated into Altran’s telecoms and media teams.

Altran has been a privileged partner of Alcatel-Lucent for more than 15 years providing R&D consulting and services at an international level. This partnership will create a privileged working relationship between the two engineering teams and as such will enable both companies to reinforce the fundamental basis of their collaboration.

We are sure that the management of Altran will enable our staff to further their professional development in accordance with their talent and expertise. Thanks to its wide international spread and presence in many sectors of activity, Altran will, among other things, give our teams access to new growth opportunities in the telecoms industry and, even more so, in the Intelligent Systems sector."

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
