Conference dedicated to a "rebirth of the maritime industry"

Victorien Erussard was the guest speaker at this fifth Renaissance Industrielle (Rebirth of Industry) meeting hosted at the Palais du Grand Large in Saint Malo, in partnership with the City of Saint Malo and the Brittany Region. This symposium showcased the key role played by practical and innovative industrial solutions in maritime energy transition.

This conference forms part of a Rebirth of Industry cycle initiated by the President of the SEIN (Society for the Advancement of National Industry), Olivier Mousson, in October 2020, in partnership with the Banque des Territoires and under the patronage of Agnès Pannier-Runacher, Secretary of State for Economy and Finance, in charge of Industry.

The latter headed up the opening of the first two events highlighting the Government’s commitment to industrialists. The aim of the cycle is to discuss the issues and key factors involved in the rebirth of industry in France. It also underlines the need to rely on the financial resources and opportunities provided by the European Union to revive a strong French industry.
