After two years of pandemic we were excited for this opportunity for French and American scientists, artists, entrepreneurs and locals to meet again in person.
The 9th edition of France-Atlanta showcased an exciting schedule of lectures, performances and discussions across the realms of culture, science, humanitarian affairs and business. From a ciné-concert of Georges Méliès’ films to a workshop on lung cancer, this year’s program, which was held from October 15 to 25, 2018, included a dozen events tied together by a shared push towards innovation as well as the promotion of transatlantic ties between the U.S. Southeast and France.
