Sixth Annual France-Atlanta Begins This Week

This year’s events, of which there are more than a dozen, will emphasize sustainable innovation.

Georgia Tech continues its annual collaboration with the Consulate General of France in Atlanta to present the sixth annual France-Atlanta from Oct. 27 through Nov. 9. 

This year’s events, of which there are more than a dozen, will emphasize sustainable innovation. Several events will take place on the Georgia Tech campus, uniting many of Georgia Tech’s top researchers and programs with French counterparts to explore future cooperation and expand Georgia Tech’s global footprint. The event is a local precursor to the international United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris in December.  

Meanwhile, each year in France, hundreds of Tech students enjoy an international learning experience through Georgia Tech-Lorraine in Metz. The European campus offers academic and research opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students, giving them the chance to earn a Georgia Tech education while also gaining international experience. 

The French-American series was created in 2010 to foster cooperation and exchange between France and the Southeastern United States in the realms of science, business, culture, and humanitarian affairs. Learn more and view a full schedule of events at www.france-atlanta.org.
