France\'s call for project about competitivity

The french government just launched a call for project dealing with competitivity as explained in Le Monde. Cities have to come up with concrete industrial projects focused one specific domain, plus partnership with universities, companies and other forces. The best example is Grenoble with its nanotechnology pole. The call wants to foster Silicon Valley-like areas. Don't know whether ut's going to work...anyway academics, big chips and startups will at least talk to each other... awareness might be the first by-product.

Les candidats intéressés par cette politique du gouvernement doivent déposer leurs dossiers avant le 28 février. Responsables politiques, chefs d'entreprise et chercheurs ont travaillé à leur élaboration, en s'appuyant sur les points forts du tissu économique.
