Fashion tech in France

Want to get up to speed on the French fashion sector? Read our report ‘Innovation and sustainability in French fashion tech: opportunities for Dutch researchers and entrepreneurs’. It maps out the whole French fashion tech sector, who are the most important players in different regions in France, what are the latest (technological) developments and which challenges still need to be faced.

Both days will offer you experts’ keynotes on the main strategic areas for your business and at least 2 mentoring sessions, one-to-one, with the experts you want to discuss your project with in full privacy to get their specific advice.
