France-Atlanta 2020

View the Brochure

From October 1 to November 10, 2020, we celebrated the eleventh edition of France-Atlanta with over a dozen events centered on innovation and exchange and aimed at strengthening the ties between France and U.S. Southeast. Traditionally, France-Atlanta events are divided into four domains: science, culture, humanitarian affairs and business. This edition was particularly notable given that it featured multiple, transversal events. For example, business leaders met with scientific experts and cultural sector stakeholders for an event focused on the local “French Tech” ecosystems and an event on the U.S. Southeast’s creative industries. In addition, during a two-day symposium, panelists from diverse fields examined the ethical questions raised by artificial intelligence.
