Mascaret was at VivaTech!

Since this Wednesday, June 15, the Paris region has hosted the sixth edition of the Viva Technology (VivaTech) show. On this occasion, Mascaret went on site to follow the latest news around innovation and support some of its customers. This is the case of Quandela, a young start-up specializing in the manufacture of single photon sources (#quantum hardware) which has just entered into a partnership with OVHcloud, also present at this event.

Since its creation in 2016, VivaTech has become “#ThePlaceToBe”,

It is THE place where, every year, professionals, investors, companies and start-ups from the strategic sectors of technology and innovation meet. All with activities directly or indirectly linked to the main objective of this event, namely: “to show that innovation and technology play a decisive role in building a society with a positive impact, which is more sustainable and inclusive. “. Therefore, Quandela, French specialist in quantum computing, is at the #VivaTech festival to present and popularize their latest #innovations. The example with “Perceval”: software created by Quandela and which makes it possible to execute quantum algorithms by simulating an optical quantum computer. Whenela will host this open-source software in the OVH cloud to allow as many people as possible to take ownership of photonic quantum #technology.

Through this sixth edition – set up at the Parc des expositions de la Porte de Versailles, the promoters’ desire to make #Vivatech a globally influential event is increasingly confirmed. This would explain the creation this year of a brand new award, aimed at promoting the pan-African ecosystem: the #AfricaTech Awards, which reward the most innovative #startups in the sectors of #ClimateTech, #HealthTech and # FinTech in #Africa.

To barrage or not to barrage ?

Before going to vote this Sunday in the second round of the presidential elections, read our latest barometer! The big question of the moment: to faire barrage or not to faire barrage? In french, this an expression meant to designate the usual union formed around any candidate that opposes the far right. Nowadays, this union is in shamble…

Benjamin Grange and Yves Censi share their analysis of social networks with us in this ultimate Odoxa, Mascaret & L’Obs barometer:

E. Macron, leader of the election on social networks faces a rival on the rise.

“Emmanuel Macron retains a large lead on social networks, a bonus for the outgoing president supported by a strong mobilization of his supporters (Blanquer, Le Drian, Le Maire, but also Estrosi, Philippe or Sarkozy). With 12.5 million mentions and more than 50 million engagements, it largely dominates its rival. However, it benefits from the disappearance of the other “anti-system” candidates for its online communication. Hitherto stifled, it is truly re-emerging in discussion spaces and accelerating more and more: with 3 million mentions (+115% compared to the previous month) and 15 million engagements (+125%), the face- face-to-face materializes.

The orphans of the first round are torn over the definition of the “lesser evil”.

If the unfortunate candidates have now disappeared, we note an impressive peak for Jean-Luc Mélenchon the day after the election: 5 million mentions (+95%) but above all 27 million commitments (+170%). What this last figure indicates is the extraordinary activity on social networks around the Mélenchon subject, and in particular a good part of orphan voters put in the hot seat. And they are not alone: ​​the question arises – less in terms of traffic – for other candidates and their supporters. The big question today: “Which is the lesser evil, Macron or Le Pen?” »

To faire barrage or not to faire barrage?

The refiguration of “reluctant votes” or “rejection against rejection”. On the one hand, among the top 25 of the most used hashtags over the past 30 days, we find #MacronDegage2022, #ToutsaufMacron and #MarinePrésidente facing a little #5ansdeplus pro-Macron. On the other hand, we have an impressive increase in the use of the terms “extreme right”, “racism” and “fascism”, revealing real concern among Internet users. The same goes for the Republican “dam”, which was widely mocked at the time but which is now becoming a reality: from less than 50,000 daily results on average, we have reached a peak of 250,000 mentions to date. However, on this traffic, we notice that more than 30% of the feelings are negative… A barrier difficult to mobilize and which will therefore be done reluctantly. »

Presidential election 2022 – second round: the latest opinion poll by Mascaret, Odoxa & L’Obs

On this morrow after the election, a look back at the Mascaret opinion poll of voting intentions for the second round of the 2022 presidential election! Discover our estimates in collaboration with Le Nouvel Obs and our partners at Odoxa.

It is therefore Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen who will face each other on Sunday April 24, as we had estimated. We predicted 28% for the outgoing president (27.6% preliminary results) against 24% for the candidate of the Rassemblement National (23.4%). The margins of error for voting intentions are established at between plus or minus 1.4 and 3.1 points.

In the second round of the 2022 presidential election, french people would grant 54.5% of their votes to Emmanuel Macron against 45.5% to Marine le Pen.

But this lead is still just as fragile: only 41% of voters would vote for Emmanuel Macron against 34% for Marine Le Pen… the others (25% altogether) are still hesitating between these two candidates or a blank or null vote (record in sight with 15%). Game’s still on. The debate between the two rounds promises to be decisive.

In any case, in terms of sociology, two Frances will face each other. The “popular” categories (50% vs 28%) and 25-34 year olds (45%) will vote Le Pen more than Macron. Conversely, the wealthiest French (51% vs 30%) and the oldest (52% vs 22% among those over 65) will vote overwhelmingly for E. Macron rather than for Mr. Le Pen.

Presidential election 2022 – first round: the latest opinion poll by Mascaret, Odoxa & L’Obs

On the eve of the election, Mascaret reveals its opinion poll of voting intentions for the 2022 presidential election! In collaboration with Le Nouvel Obs and our partners at Odoxa. As abstention threatens tomorrow’s election, you will find in our report the main trends observed in the electorate a few days before this vote, as well as our analysis of social networks:

Largely ahead of his main “rival” on social networks, the outgoing President is also criticized for his tightening of social screws

“Emmanuel Macron has accumulated 6 million mentions over the last 15 days, where Marine Le Pen hardly reaches one million. In terms of commitments, it even has 10 times more results (20.6 million VS 2.4 million). This means that the media publish more about President Macron (obviously, announcement effect, meeting, Ukraine, McKinsey, etc.), but above all, that Internet users discuss it a lot more (and debate it!). Announcements and publicity stunts on the social (learning, retirement, RSA, etc.) in particular, are hotly debated but because they went very badly: we observe significant peaks after his declarations but, above all, the feeling negative towards Emmanuel Macron is greater than that towards Marine Le Pen (36% VS 28%)! than 16,000 tweets in one day, while the Republican “dam” is only mentioned in derision…
Opponents from both right and left rush to Marine Le Pen to capture her electorate, but without much success.

Opponents from both right and left rush to Marine Le Pen to capture her electorate, but without much success.

The candidate of the National Rally remains difficult to hear on the networks, Éric Zemmour steals a lot of space for expression and online communities. A few exceptions, however, such as the publications of Hugo Décrypte which are always very successful. It is moreover Marine Le Pen who is the most targeted by the competition – from all sides – her rivals hoping to steal her place hitherto “acquired” in the second round. On his right, the Zemmour phenomenon aims to represent hard right tendencies there, and on his left, a real Mélenchon dynamic is accelerating in this final straight… but it is difficult to know if he will succeed in seducing not only historical voters on the left, but also the popular electorate recovered by the National Rally over the past twenty years. »

A big thank you to Gaël Sliman and the entire Odoxa team, as well as to our partners at the Nouvel Obs for this titanic work on the 2022 presidential election. We hope to have been able to shed some light on the eve of this decisive vote. for our common future.

If multimodality is the rule, environmental concerns around mobility are divisive! Alternately followers of public transport, cycling or motorized two-wheelers, in the Northern capital, 92% of Lille residents use the car, including 73% who take the wheel several times a week, and even 44% every days. At the same time, the bicycle boom, pedestrianization of the city center, low emission zones (ZFE), the inhabitants of Lille and the inhabitants of the Hauts-de-France region seem to be ahead of the challenges of sustainable mobility, even if certain subjects divide them. more than others.

Meeting Christine Lagarde

Crises follow one another… but are not alike. Yves Censi, a senior partner at Mascaret, met Christine Lagarde at the Montaigne Institute for a Q&A session. He gives us more details:

“I met up with a still-as-always brilliant Christine Lagarde on Monday to discuss the inflationary context, the economic and monetary consequences of the global double shock of Covid and the ukrainian conflict, as well as the awaited role of the European Central Bank. Redistribution of access to resources and raw materials upsets our paradigms of growth, consumption and sovereignty. In particular: social inequalities and the standard of living.

The second photo dates from September 2008, “black Monday”, when we were returning, with the President of the ECB at the time, Jean Claude Trichet, from Washington where we had just witnessed the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers. The latter had precipitated the planet into the worst economic crisis since the 1930s. The obsession was on the reduction of sovereign debt, which is clearly taking a back seat nowadays.”
