Looking back on the day

The first Franco-Asian Symposium around Water-treatment and its future was held on February 4th, 2014 from 9am to 18pm at the Water Pavilion in Paris (16th arrondissement). The Franco-Japanese Sasakawa Foundation, the Academy of Water, Pôle Aquimer and SLQI SYSTEMS have jointly organized this international trade show. Among the invited speakers of the event, Japanese and Chinese researchers, experts from Singapore and Vietnamese scientists were present. Among the French invitees, senior officials, former ministers and industrial decision makers. One hundred participants were at the appointment to attend the different conferences, watch technology demonstrations and take part in the international roundtable that concluded the event. The professional audience was very heterogeneous, which made the richness and the complementarity of the interaction with the guests. The repartition of this audience has been a valuable asset for the debate (see right chart).



A rich program with various approaches
The theme of water is large, global and very current. The diversity of the interventions was the strong point of this symposium and helped having different visions and approaches of this vital element, as well as solutions for its treatment. The event took place in a friendly yet serious environment and was divided in four sessions: Institutional, socio-cultural, technical and an international roundtable session. Between each session, a break around a buffet was offered to the guests in order to promote exchanges and collaborations in a casual atmosphere. Some journalists were able to take pictures and videos of the day. Various nationalities were represented this day: Japan, China, Vietnam, Singapore, France, Switzerland and Algeria. The whole day has been translated into French and Japanese, to facilitate both the understanding and the interaction between the public and the speakers. The cocktail reception was also the opportunity to take stock of this day with the participants and guests. Returns and impressions from the participants were very positive and forward-looking. Our business partners were also satisfied with this day and with the new relationships that has been created.


Toward a 2nd edition?
Several speakers and participants discussed the possibility of organizing a 2nd edition of this Franco-Asian Symposium. Partners will be invited to think about the feasibility, the relevance and the interest of organizing such an event for the second time. For SLQI Systems, who co-organized the event, considering a new edition is quite interesting and appropriate in order to strengthen the collaborations that will emerge, and to develop new ones.
