MENA Clusters at FILEX France


THE NEXT SOCIETY, in collaboration with France Clusters, organises the 1st International Business Development Mission for MENA clusters during France Clusters’ FILEX, the national forum of sectors of excellence and territorial ecosystems, organised by France Clusters and its partners.

The event will bring together cluster managers, poles of competitiveness, accelerators, incubators and technopoles, territorial decision-makers, directors of schools, universities and technical centers as well as innovation funders to exchange on key themes. 

This international business development mission, especially for Mediterranean clusters and their member companies, will take place on September Friday 13th.

French and European representatives of clusters, enterprises, incubators, accelerators and all different actors interested in Mediterranean markets will also have the opportunity to meet the North African and Middle Eastern cluster representatives through B2B meetings and explore new business opportunities.

On the same day, a special workshop will also be organised on inter-cluster cooperation on the greater Mediterranean space and THE NEXT SOCIETY initiative.

The new challenges of clusters after 20 years of existence and the sectors and ecosystems facing the climate challenge among other themes, will be addressed at the event that will be held from on 12 September 2019 in Paris.

“Clusters Awards” and “Trophée Thèse” competitions will take place during Day 2, 13 September, while meetings and exchanges will be promoted through a networking space and thematic workshops.
