The 2014 French American Innovation Day (FAID) is organized by the Office for Science & Technology of the Embassy of France in the United States in collaboration with MIT, MassCEC and France’s CEA and will address in particular the challenge of “Bringing new technologies in the Energy Field to the Market Place”.
The conference will feature speakers from Harvard, MIT, France’s CEA and CNRS; large companies such as Airbus, Schneider Electric, Total, Saint-Gobain, Saft, Lockheed Martin and United Technologies will present their cutting-edge technologies and will explain their strategies to bring innovations from the bench to the market. The audience will consist of students, researchers, investors, startup entrepreneurs and large corporations from France and Massachusetts.
The goal of FAID 2014 is to bring together small and large companies, high level researchers from the best universities in France and the US as well as government’s stakeholders to highlight the work being done in both countries and to encourage further collaborations.
FAID is an annual Franco-American event which brings together scientists, companies, entrepreneurs and investors. It is a high-level event in the Boston area where researchers and companies have the opportunity to exchange views on a specific technological issue, start cooperative activities and develop business transactions with a transatlantic perspective. The goal of the program is to facilitate the development of innovation ties between France and America.
