Verbatim from the guests
My overall impression is a very positive one, and I saw a well-established industrial network supported by a healthy number of universities and laboratories. The Clusters’ role is key to create partnerships between the different companies. This event was an opportunity for me to discover suppliers and discuss their innovations with them. Some of the issues addressed caught our attention and will serve our business and innovation plan for 2013. Overall, it was a success, and it would be a good idea to organize the same thing in other regions, that would allow us to get to know the French industrial know-how better.
