Manufacturing is integral to the economies of France and the United States, and job creation in this sector is on the rise in both countries. It is essential to cultivate strategic partnerships with researchers across the globe if we are to create jobs, solve industrial challenges and grow as leaders in manufacturing innovation.
As the hub for manufacturing innovation in the Southeast, it was only natural Georgia Tech was instrumental in organizing the Scientific Symposium on the Future of Manufacturing as part of France-Atlanta 2015.
France-Atlanta is an annual series of events focused on scientific, business, cultural and humanitarian issues, with the mission of strengthening relations by fostering cooperation between the Southeast and France. Now in its sixth year, it is organized by Tech and the Consulate General of France in Atlanta.
