This article demonstrates the crucial importance of the French National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control (INRIA) in Internet history at a national and European level, at a time when the « network of networks» was still not appropriated by the general public. At a first stage, its role is very much connected to individual actions of researchers, experts, and scientific players.
