SOLUTRANS 2017 : a start-up village for smart mobility and transport

For its upcoming edition (21-25 November at Lyon Eurexpo), SOLUTRANS is to join the FRENCH TECH movement. In partnership with LUTB RAAC and the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, the exhibition is to create a dedicated village hosting more than 20 startups national and regional. These young firms present innovative solutions which could potentially become the standards of the future! This village is characterised by four flagship themes: environment, energy, intelligent transport systems (ITS) and safety, as well as new service solutions.
