About Internet Memory Research

Our story

Internet Memory Research is Start-Up established in 2011 that helps businesses collect, process and activate their digital data information thanks to its large scale Web Crawlers, Data Storage and Processing capacities.

Pioneers in New Web Technologies and Big Data, Internet Memory Research benefits from one of the most exhaustive Data Analytics among international e-commerce players as we draw our knowledge from a R&D background and our historical and ongoing Web Archiving activities. Spin-off of the Internet Memory Foundation, our project was born thanks to the collective effort of more than 40 Engineers and Researches, three years of Research Projects and the participation in five European Projects.



Internet Memory Research is an active member of Cap Digital and Systematic business cluster and a key actor in the definition of the Big Data Roadmap commissioned by the European Commission (RethinkBig Project). It has been selected 5 times by the European Commission for FP7 and H2020, and by UbiFrance for the Digital Road Show Big Data, New York, 2014.
