On May 12th, the FACC "Women in Business" Committee was proud to host a "Meet the Executive" event with Anne Lauvergeon, Founder & Chief Executive Officer, A.L.P. S.A. and former Chief Executive Officer of nuclear and renewable energy group AREVA.
The event took place in the Executive Auditorium of member bank Credit Agricole - CIB. Platinum Sponsorship was provided by member firm DENTONS.
Anne Lauvergeon discussed the role of women in the fields of science and technology today; her actions for innovation as Chair of SIGFOX; and her very inspiring views as Chair of Innovation 2030, which was launched by the French government in 2013 in an effort to actively confront the major global challenges of 2030.
She also discussed in particular the Innovation 2030 Committee's "Un Principe et 7 ambitions pour l'innovation" report, which includes such priorities as Energy storage; Plant proteins and Plant chemistry projects; The Silver Economy; and Big Data.
Anne Lauvergeon participated in a dynamic Q&A with attendees, which was followed by a wine & cheese networking event.
The FACC sincerely thanks Anne Lauvergeon, Platinum Sponsor DENTONS and host firm Credit Agricole - CIB.
