12 February 2019: take part in the forthcoming Bercy Economic Café dedicated to the EPV label!

"Innovation, key to the success of the development of Entreprises du Patrimoine Vivant? Industry and gastronomy: innovative sectors at the heart of SMEs/SMIs with excellent know-how." These themes will be at the heart of discussions on 12 February 2019 at the next "Café économique de Bercy." Open to all, this café-debate is organised in collaboration with the Institut Supérieur des Métiers (ISM), which manages the EPV label on behalf of the State, in connection with the Direction Générale des Entreprises (DGE).

A few weeks before major events planned in March, on industry (Semaine de l’industrie) and gastronomy (Goût de/Good France), this economic café will put a spotlight on these two sectors of activity that contribute to the competitiveness and attractiveness of the French economy.

Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (EPV), labelled companies, holders of exceptional expertise and initiators of innovative solutions in the industrial field and in the world of gastronomy, will present their activity, explain their development strategy and discuss their approach to innovation and their prospects for export.

These meetings, open to all, aim to promote the sharing of information and exchanges on public policies implemented by the ministries of the Economy, Action and Public Accounts between experts from the public sphere and the private sphere and members of the public concerned by these topics.
