The French competitiveness clusters will be traveling between 26 and 30 October in Hong-Kong and Guangdong, accompanied by a delegation of innovative French companies, in order to find out more about Chinese LED lighting eco-systems.

French competitiveness clusters coordinated by the S2E2 - Smart Electricity Cluster - are creating a network of scientific and technical expertise in the domain of lighting and specifically LED lighting. On the occasion of the HONG KONG INTERNATIONAL LIGHTING FAIR, the clusters will be traveling between 26 and 30 October in Hong-Kong and the province of Guangdong in southern China accompanied by a delegation of innovative French companies in order to find out more about Chinese LED lighting eco-systems.


During the mission, the French clusters will present their expertise in this area and will seek to form partnerships with the main Chinese stakeholders such as clusters, research centers, major groups, SMEs/MMCs, etc. They will discuss technologies and mutually beneficial expertise in the domain of LED lighting, an industry which is seeing significant growth throughout the world.
