2009 was a record year for cleantech in EU and particularly in France. According to the Cleantech Group's investment data, 2009 saw more fundings in France than any previous year, making it the most active European country. France offers attractive environment for cleantech and exceptional funding opportunities for R&D (Research Tax Credits). This evening is a unique opportunity to gain a broad understanding of the cleantech landscape in France : come and listen to successful US companies who will provide detailed explanations on how they took root in Europe and France. Through the analysis of those concrete case studies on their transatlantic experiences, the panel will share their critical insight on the current and future potential for research and business development activities -- and how it translates to your growth potential.
