Business program is out!

Do business à la française at the heart of the 3rd most innovative region in the World! For its 7th edition, Futur en Seine will take place at the heart of Paris. The festival has become over the years the unmissable rendezvous for international innovation forces: start-ups and companies, sponsors, investors, research labs, top 100 companies and clusters meet and exchange about the future of innovation.

The Innovation Village will take place at Carreau du Temple, Gaîté lyrique and Mairie du 3ème. Conference and workshops will be dedicated to a professional audience on Thursday 9th and Friday 10th, and to families and to the general public during the week-end.

150 companies will showcase their latest products and innovative services at Carreau du Temple. Do not miss the conferences, workshops, edtech and videogames areas at Gaité Lyrique.

Thanks to the EEN platform, Paris Île-de-France Regional Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Paris Region Entreprises will facilitate the matchmaking with international innovation professionals.
