Ericsson to Add R&D Site in France
Tuesday, January 21, 2020 | Comments

Ericsson announced plans to establish a new research and development (R&D) site in France with up to 300 employees, accelerating 5G momentum in Europe. This site will focus initially on 5G software development and security, benefitting the global 5G ecosystem and leveraging the firm’s collaboration with French customers.

Ericsson plans to open the new R&D site in early 2020, with a progressive ramp-up to increase its R&D presence to up to 300 employees. An initial unit will be established at Ericsson’s offices in Massy, France, part of Paris-Saclay, one of Europe’s largest innovation zones. This will provide access to a competence pool and foster industry and academic collaborations.

“We recognize the economic and technological importance of the French market and the country’s influence in Europe,” said Fredrik Jejdling, Ericsson executive vice president and head of networks. “The rich technology ecosystem and key competencies that are present in France are conducive to building 5G through a strong R&D presence in the country. This initiative will strengthen Ericsson’s 5G software portfolio, including enhancing security capabilities, especially for the French and European markets. It will also support our continued focus on Europe and bring the latest innovations to our customers.”

Ericsson employs 15,000 engineers in Europe, 60 percent of its total R&D staff. The company has 18 R&D centers in Europe including Finland, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Spain and Sweden.
