“Every edition of France-Atlanta highlights innovation and exchange. We’re very excited about this year’s program which brings together two major southern cities that have a lot in common, yet have so much to learn from one another, Marseille and Atlanta.”, said Anne-Laure Desjonquères, Consul General of France in Atlanta. “We’ll also welcome two French startups for a week of meetings with ecosystem stakeholders, industry leaders and technology experts.”
“Global connectivity and cross-cultural collaboration are essential to human and scientific progress, and I am proud of the rich, longstanding friendship that France, Atlanta, and Georgia Tech share,” said Ángel Cabrera, president of the Georgia Institute of Technology. “I look forward to another excellent showcase of this powerful transatlantic partnership that unites cities and continents in the name of education, diplomacy, research, and innovation.”
