  23 French exhibitors at the Photonics West tradeshow in San Francisco   From January 31 st to February 2 nd , 2017 Organised by Business France in partnership with the CNOP (National Committee for Optics and Photonics), the French Pavilion at the Photonics West tradeshow in February 2016 will gather 24 exhibitors. Among them, there will be French competitiveness cluster who are CNOP members: Alpha – Route des Lasers & des Hyperfréquences, as well as the Bretagne International agency, which groups several businesses in its area. Located in the Moscone Center South Hall, in booths 1723 and 1823, the French Pavilion will extend over a 1600 sq feet surface area. The French optic and photonics represents about a thousand companies and 50,000 direct jobs, a turnover of €10,45b, 300 laboratories and 13,000 researchers (Source: AFOP). As for business sectors, while it is still positioned on the defence market, it is making increasing inroads into sectors such as security, aeronautics, automotive, space, health, telecommunications, instrumentation and industrial processes.   90% of French industrialists export their production. Those exports represent about 50% of the business channel’s overall turnover. Research conducted in France covers a wide range of fields: fundamental physics, astrophysics, micro and nanotechnology, light/matter interaction and materials, thereby taking part in the progress of other disciplines. All French research agencies are presently involved in ambitious projects: the large telescopes of the future, satellites to observe the workings of the universe, extreme lasers, and they are associated with the instrumentation needed in such undertakings as the ITER, VIRGO and LHC projects. Beyond the exceptional advances they are expected to trigge r, those projects are also significantly stimulating industrial activity around optics photonics. Furthermore, they are playing a role in creating a strong synergy between research laboratories and industry, a synergy which is essential to a dynamic business environment and which has brought about a strong showing of French projects within the framework of European calls for tender. Innovative in the field of optics and photonics, French companies exhibiting in San Francisco will be unveiling their latest products at the tradeshow. The catalogue of exhibitors is available on request. Contact: Business France Nathalie Marchal, Electronic & Digital Project Coordinator Nathalie.marchal@businessfrance.fr

What is La French Tech? France is undergoing a start-up renaissance driven by a new generation of entrepreneurs, investors, engineers, designers, and other talented people. It is a new Start-up Republic, home to vibrant tech hubs and a hotbed talent, impregnated with a strong entrepreneurial culture. The name of this movement is “La French Tech”, a banner shared by French startups and the French government which supports them. Launched in 2013, the €200 million initiative promotes French startups under a single brand, both in France and abroad. It also offers mentoring, funding, recruitment advice and other resources to ensure the ecosystem has the right tools to grow. La French Tech at CES 2015 At CES 2015, France will be the best represented nation in Europe with 120 French exhibitors from a wide range of sectors, from healthcare to wearable tech, 3D sound and vision systems, to green tech. France ranks far ahead of the UK and Germany, and the fifth in the world (behind China, the USA, Taiwan and South Korea). In the Eureka Park, the startup marketplace at CES designed to launch new products and services, France ranks second behind the U.S. It accounts for 25% of all exhibiting startups , unlike China which will be poorly represented at the Eureka Park. The success of the French presence in 2014 is demonstrated by massive return in force: in 2015, there will be 66 companies (up from 38 in 2014), a 73% increase . The French representation includes: • Globally renowned startups : Withings, Netatmo, Sen.se, etc. • Big French companies using the digital economy to transform their business: La Poste, L’Oréal, Pernod Ricard …. • In the Eureka Park: 66 French startups, including 18 companies supported under the Ubifrance banner.

The CES Unveiled event series brings the CES community together in different regions of the world to showcase new products and tech trends leading up to the International CES. Due to the success of its first edition, CEA returned to France in 2014, showcasing some of France’s most innovative companies.
