After initial professional experience in an Industrial Property Law Firm, Sandrine Coda worked for ten years as patent engineer within the Orange group, first in the field of radio/mobile (3G/4G) and wired (copper/fibre optic) access networks, then more specifically managing the portfolio of foreign laboratories, and notably Asian, of the group (fields of radio/mobile access, M2M (Machine to Machine), application services for mobile devices (e.g. reading applications, web browsers, mobile device locking applications, etc.)). In this context, she notably manages partnership and joint ownership agreements with academic partners in scientific research.

In 2015, she joined Technicolor, where she managed a portfolio of patents in the fields of WiFi, M2M (Machine to Machine), optics and Light-Field (acquisition, format, processing, publication, etc.).

During these past 15 years spent in industry, she has notably developed a long experience in portfolio development, in connection with standardisation, and support with standardisation, via the creation of claim-charts.

In 2018, she decided to give a new impetus to her career by joining the Patents & Strategy department of the VIDON Group.
