  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
