The AP-HP on the French booth :
Like many countries, France will be present with a booth gathering the different french regions. The AP-HP will be present in the stand of the Ile de France region, coordinated by the Regional Development Agency and the Medicen cluster. The booth is the privileged place for exchange with the many visitors to the area, with potential partners for AP-HP but it is also a venue of the strengths of the AP-HP for innovation, research and clinical care. To this end, more than 150 flyers and lists of available technologies will be disseminated and a presentation of the AP-HP will be presented throughout the Convention on the screens of the French booth.
