Roger Torrenti graduated in 1976 from Ecole Centrale de Paris, in the top 3 of the French engineers’
“grandes écoles.
He began his career as a research engineer at the French Atomic Energy Commission, where he
developed an expertise in energy technologies and also had the opportunity to be involved in
international working groups, within IEA (International Energy Agency) and European Commission (EC)
projects. In 1979, he was given the management of a research centre of Armines, an institution linked to
the French Ministry for Industry. There, Roger developed his expertise in the energy and IT fields and his

the ICT domain worldwide with services such as technology assessment, market analysis, organization of
business and cooperation events, secretariat of associations and working groups. Roger has been involved

RRI-ICT Forum project (www.rri-ict.eu), aiming at analysing, supporting and promoting the contribution of Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) to, and the Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) approach in ICT research and innovation under H2020. Roger represents his organization in several European
