  1. Business support systems


My organization represents businesses from the north of France region. It is in direct contact with companies active in many sectors, especially ICT. We are looking to identify organisations that can be interested in working with French businesses, both in terms of business and technology collaborations.

The north of France recently set up a master plan to switch to a green & digital economy after decades (centuries) of manufacturing-based economy. Knowledge sharing would be appreciated.

Also, we are preparing some trade missions related to the smart city and smart mobility concepts in such countries as Turkey, Italy, Spain and Portugal: so any people involved in these fields in these countries would be of high interest to us.
