Innovators Under 35 Europe: France Gathering

Local Gathering
MIT Technology Review arrived to France thanks to the support of BNP Paribas and L'Atelier BNP Paribas. Our objective is to recognize the most remarkable technological entrepreneurs and researchers in the country. We have grown exponentially since we first entered the French community in 2015, always pursuing the same objective: to award the innovative and ingenious developments of new technologies or the creative application of pre-existing ones that address the world’s most pressing challenges.

Among our previous laureates, Xavier Duportet and Timothée Boitouzet were selected Innovators of the Year 2015 and 2016 respectively. This year, as the European project continues to grow, the MIT Technology Review innovation community has gone one step further: we are compiling a pool of the top 35 profiles in Europe which will become Innovators Under 35 Europe for 2017 during the award ceremony on September 14th in Paris.


Prior to this ceremony, MIT Technology Review will select a list of the TOP FRENCH TALENTS – some of them could have the chance to win Innovators Under 35 Europe 2017 awards in September.
