Don’t Miss Final France-Atlanta Events

Primary tabs

Even though the “France-Atlanta 2011—Together Toward Innovation” celebration is nearing its end, there is still time to enjoy one of the remaining events.    

The events are being offered through a partnership between Georgia Tech and the Consulate General of France and highlight French and American collaborations in science, economics, culture and humanitarian efforts.

“Both France and Atlanta share a common strong commitment to innovation as an engine for economic growth,” said Pascal Le Deunff, consul general of France in Atlanta. “Last year, ‘France-Atlanta 2010’ brought together almost 3,500 participants and breathed new life into the relationship between France and the southeastern United States.”

According to President G. P. “Bud” Peterson, France-Atlanta provides a unique opportunity for not just students, but anyone interested in exploring France through cultural and humanitarian logistics, business workshops and scientific symposiums.

“Many of the challenges we face today are global in nature, impacting all of humanity — things like energy, sustainability, water utilization and resources, humanitarian logistics and health care,” Peterson said. “There is no end to the possibilities before us when we work together for solutions.”
