Innovation Outre-mer brings together companies, economic players, institutions and industrial sites located in Overseas France, in Africa and in priority districts that recognize themselves in the desire to develop innovation and overseas tech, as well as to strengthen the promotion of these territories abroad.

The finalists will take part on November 8 in a meeting with the Banque des Territoires and its Innovation Hub.
