Conclusion speech

Gilbert Casamatta, President of IRT Saint Exupéry and vice president of FIT, felt that this forum demonstrated IRT capacities for individual and collective action in a brilliant manner. The connection between the actions seen in the villages encourages us to work together even more qualitatively and quantitatively to be the leading force in French technological research. While industrial partners are now familiar with IRTs, a step forward remains to be taken with academic partners regarding their involvement in longer 5-year roadmaps and scientific co-steering.
