ALTRAN: Industry experts address technology challenges at Altran Innovation Conference

The Altran Innovation Conference took place on 7 February 2007 and was attended by over 230 people, including European Commission officials, MEPs, Altran officials and industry experts. The conference covered the themes of Energy, Transport, Space, Security, Innovation and ICT and presented Altran's capabilities in establishing and executing collaborative research projects in Europe and elsewhere.

The covered technologies included renewable energy, energy efficiency, trans-European transport networks, clean and sustainable surface transport, nuclear fission and fusion, hydrogen fuel and fuel cells amongst others.

In his address to the conference, Mr du Chaisemartin highlighted the need to improve the environment for attracting and maintaining talented researchers and experts in Europe. He added "For more than 20 years Altran has been committed to offer great jobs and scientific careers to engineers and researchers. In 2007 we will create more than new 1000 jobs in Europe, all these positions are, of course, with permanent contracts. Furthermore, we should find solutions together so that talented researchers and experts benefit from the same financial standard of living in Europe than in the US. I know the planned (EIT) European Institute for Technology will be an important step in this direction. I call for specific action plan, like for example a special tax policy for talented researchers and experts."

Mr du Chaisemartin also stated his company's support of the Competitiveness Council's commitment to increasing the level of investment in R&D in Europe whereby all benefit from innovation. Altran teams have been involved in the preparation of the FP7 and want to continue their engagement regarding: independent evaluation, validation and expertise, programmes coordination and management and innovation process management.

Representatives of a range of technology-based organisations attended the conference, including Hilso
