French Innovation Week is a celebration of French innovation and savoir-faire in Chicago.
The 4rd Annual French Innovation Week will take place the first week of May 2017 with a variety of events throughout the city that showcase the best of French science, technology, innovation and more.
In 2016, the series of events included free public lectures given by leading French scientists, panel discussions, special screenings, hands-on activities for hundreds of young students during the The 5th Annual French-American Science Festival, and presentation by French leaders of cutting-edge technological advances at Chicago tech hub 1871. Finally, the week closed with the French-American Chamber of Commerce annual Gala “La Nuit des Etoiles” celebrating Women and Innovation.
