Through this article you will learn about everything related to the use of technology in France, its advances and looks to the future and its role today.
Use of technology in France
France is currently seeking a change in technology and organizations, under the backing of current president Enmanuel Macron. The idea is to materialize it through (AIF) Alliance for the Industry of the Future, which pursues the common work of both public and private industrial associations as an objective.
This alliance seeks to digitally transform and modernize the main production schemes of small and medium industries. In addition to this, ensure the Plan Francia for very high speed internet. His goal over time is to place France as the leader in the global economy, whether digital or smart.
This alliance has proposed 10 solutions for the new French industrial era, which are:
- New resources.
- Sustainable cities.
- Ecological mobility.
- Transport of the future.
- Medicine of the future.
- Data economy.
- Smart objects.
- Digital trust.
- Smart feeding.
- Industry of the future.
The first meeting of this alliance for the industry of the future of technology in France was held in Paris in 2019.
Advances in French technology
In terms of technological advances, France presents an accelerated development seeking, like other European countries, to achieve innovation in its economy through various processes.
When you wonder where the main constraints for French innovation lie, you should focus on financial problems and not technological problems. In 2018, France committed to a plan that runs until 2022, to improve competitiveness in artificial intelligence.
In turn, this plan seeks to reduce the constant brain drain of French professionals to the US, and finally to promote the different advances in technology.
The France Relance plan (an investment plan, which covers 100 billion euros), presented by President Macron in September of this year 2020, seeks to face the negative effects that the covid-19 pandemic has left. This through the financing of companies, so that they modify their infrastructures, production, and thus be able to invest in training and innovation.
The plan is developed through the three-pillar approach:
- Ecology: it seeks to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 and thus reduce the environmental impact, stimulate the use of the rail system and bicycles, innovation and everything related to hydrogen and the transition to a green economy.
- Competitiveness: seeks to provide companies with optimal and favorable conditions for their performance and industrial and trade strengthening.
- Social and territorial cohesion: seeks to stimulate youth recruitment, reduce unemployment and the social impact caused by covid-19 in society (mainly in young people of productive age).
These are just some examples of how France has taken advantage of technology in recent years and it is estimated that in the future it will be incorporating it in more productive sectors, for the benefit of its inhabitants.
Role of technology in France today
France is always at the forefront in terms of technology, to satisfy all the needs and requirements of its vast consumer market. It is a country that knows in detail the use and advantages of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT).
The current French president has pointed out on several occasions the need and importance of all of France having internet access and high speed, as a strategy for further development, both for the industry and for professionals themselves.
Despite the limitations that the covid-19 has caused worldwide, France does not give up and is firm and enthusiastic about its plans to deploy and put its 5G networks into operation by this year 2020. A country always in favor of technological advances and any event that guarantees an improvement in the quality of life of the French.
