The president of Toulouse-based ISAE-SUPAERO, Olivier Lesbre, and his executive team join faculty and students from Georgia Tech’s School of Aerospace Engineering to share their experience and views on innovations in aerospace, research and the future of higher education.
A long tradition of cooperation and student exchanges led Georgia Tech and ISAE-SUPAERO to sign a French-American partnership agreement in the field of aerospace engineering in 2016. Research cooperation and the exchange of faculty along with joint seminars and symposiums related to innovation and entrepreneurship are part of the ongoing partnership.
Atlanta and Toulouse have had strong ties since their former mayors Maynard Jackson and Pierre Baudis united the two cities in 1974, forming the Atlanta Toulouse Sister Cities Committee. Georgia Tech continues in this spirit of admiration and collaboration with dynamic partnerships in research, innovation and academics.
This event is co-organized by the Office for Science and Technology at the Embassy of France in the United States and The Georgia Institute of Technology, in partnership with the City of Toulouse and ISAE-SUPAERO.
