Possible Trade Mission: Futur en Seine

3

We're working on putting together a proposal for a possible trade mission to Futur en Seine. Who would be interested in attending?

Futur en Seine’s five themes areas form the basis of a high level international program, comprising keynotes, conferences, workshops, contests, popular juries, award ceremonies and evening events.

Futur en Seine 2011 will be one of the first international events to address the question of scalability, the industrialization of innovative digital products and services. Scalability is the key issue for all the cultural and creative industries, particularly since the digital revolution.

1 program, 5 themes areas:

  • The Future of Life
  • The Future of the City
  • The Future of Music and Image
  • The Future of Communications
  • The Future of Creation

During Futur en Seine – more specifically from the 23rd to the 26th – they are organising the “Village de l’Innovation”, which will be divided in three parts: The French exhibitors, the prototype village and the International Village.

We have no guarantee of InvestNI support for this but mny delegations already confirmed their participation – Japan, Brazil, UK, Netherlands, Denmark. They are offering space and basic infrastructure – electricity, internet, tables and chairs - for free. The idea is to give a chance to our SMEs to expose their innovative products/services/prototypes to an international audience.

I'd be interested if you want University representation. Would fit well with my Future and Emerging Technilogy work.

Sounds like an interesting event and could be great opportunity to assess some of the latest technologies. The event itself is a very good fit for www.medialightbox.com as our system has been specifically designed for companies in the creative sectors. I'd be interested in attending, particularly the 'Future of Communications' theme.

I wouldn't be able to attend the event, but I am interested in discussing what input from Northern Ireland specifically might be. Especially in terms of the Future of Creation.
