French-Swedish Innovation Forum

Pan-European Collaborations for a Smart, Green & Energy Independent Industry.

We attended round tables about sustainable business models, impact management, strategies for scaling and green transition at the level of our two countries. We also discovered innovative start-ups that are working for a more responsible industry and have a real positive impact on the environment : ClimateView, CorPower Ocean, EcoVadisBIORESTORE, Bright Day Graphene and EcoTree. Our two countries have a strong innovative potential for the green transition.

The panel was very rich  : opening and closing speeches of the ambassadors Etienne de Gonneville and Håkan Åkesson, intervention of various personalities of the Franco-Swedish diplomacy and speakers mainly from the energy sector about the following topics;
