ENGIE partners with the Journées Plug&Start from June 10th-15th 201511/06/2015
In an exclusive sneak-peek event prior to ENGIE’s Innovation Week, the Group’s Champagne-Ardenne Regional Delegation is partnering with the Journées Plug&Start hosted by the Aube Technopolis in Champagne between June 10th and 12th 2015. Since its inaugural session in 2002, this event has developed a high level of visibility in the world of innovation.
The Journées Plug&Start are focused on accelerating innovative projects. Over the course of three intensive days, project owners can make the most of a network of 250 experts: company executives, elected officials, financial backers, legal teams, scientists and other experts.
15 projects have been selected for this edition, including one involving the development and commercialization of small-scale methanization projects. This is why Xavier Passemard, ENGIE’s Methanization Director, will be one of the experts present to challenge project owners on the subject. Blandine Moquin, ENGIE’s Regional Delegate for Champagne-Ardenne, will also be a part of the final selection committees.
Decision-makers and innovative players from the area will meet on June 11th, 2015 at the Plug&Start Evening, where Isabelle Dilhac, Prefect of the Aube, will be present alongside Philippe Adnot, Senator in charge of Innovation and President of the Aube General Council, and Francois Baroin, Mayor of Troyes and President of Greater Troyes.
For ENGIE, this partnership is another opportunity to:
- participate in developing innovation
- detect and guide new innovative projects and/or startups
- reinforce the Group’s relationships with the Aube Technopolis in Champagne and with Greater Troyes.
