Inria Project Labs

Participants : Yassine Hadjadj-Aoul, Gerardo Rubino, Bruno Tuffin.

Inria Project Labs' (IPL) initiatives enable the launch of ambitious research projects directly linked with the institute.


BetterNet aims at building and delivering a scientific and technical collaborative observatory to measure and improve the Internet service access as perceived by users. In this Inria Project Lab, we will propose new original user-centered measurement methods, which will associate social sciences to better understand Internet usage and the quality of services and networks. Our observatory can be defined as a vantage point, where:

  • tools, models and algorithms/heuristics will be provided to collect data,

  • acquired data will be analyzed, and shared appropriately with scientists, stakeholders and civil society,

  • and new value-added services will be proposed to end-users.
