Our first Sino-French initiative started concretely in September 2017, in Hangzhou, PRC, with the French Dream Town Innovative Accelerator: a French team of 40 persons working for the French City Brain© demonstrator, coming from 15 French innovative companies and Institutes and a Chinese team of 18 persons as well as Chinese companies and partners.
