At the invitation of the CII (Confederation of Indian Industry) and the Department of Science and Technology, France was selected to partner the Technology Summit 2013. The event provided an opportunity for public and private research and innovation organisations from the two countries to work on active cooperation for technology transfers in key sectors.
CVT Valorisation Sud was there.
The Technology Summit logically followed on from the Forum on scientific cooperation with India held in Paris in November 2012 and attended by key research and innovation players.
During his visit to India in February 2013, the French President had announced a major technology and innovation meeting between public and private entities from the two countries. French investments in India currently represent approximately 18 billion dollars and the two nations share the same ambition of developing the technologies of tomorrow. They therefore have a lot to gain from joining forces.
The event was an opportunity for CVT Valorisation Sud, represented by Director Yves BORDET, to hold fruitful meetings with both private and public actors from the Indian technology scene.
Promising contacts were particularly made with the IFCPAR (Indo-French Centre for Promotion of Advanced Research), BIRAC (Biotechnology Industry Research Assistance Council), and large companies such as HCL, the CADILA laboratories, VEOLIA India and Xyannix. With the support of the CII and the French Embassy in India, technologies promoted by CVT Valorisation Sud were presented at these meetings and may find future applications in India.
