than 300 Brazilian companies are participating in this event along with 66 French companies including Sophia Conseil, Genesis and Thales as well as the Risk Management Competitiveness Clusters, Pegase, Optitec and the PACA Sea. The aim of these meetings was to develop technological, industrial and business partnerships between the two countries. On 10 November, the Innovation Forum made it possible for the major businesses (Rhodia, Michelin, Renault, Dassault Systems, Air Liquide, Altran, PSA, Bull, etc.) and a number of SMEs to present their experiences in Brazil as well as their expectations. President LULLA also visited the Forum. A schedule of meetings and individual and collective contacts (technological partnership and business meetings) has also been planned for the participating companies. Once again, a PRIDES seminar was organized on-site by the Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur Region in order to familiarize Brazilians with the specificities of the regional economic policy.
