Paris, San Francisco extend high-tech collaboration

Tuesday 27 January 2009 | 11:21 CET | News
The mayors of Paris and San Francisco, Bertrand Delanoe and Gavin Newsom, have extended for another two years a cooperation agreement first signed by the two cities in 1996. VNU.fr reports the agreement aims to support innovative companies working on digital technologies. Examples include Digital Pathway, a California-inspired project adopted by Paris to help underprivileged youths find employment using new technologies, and "Gaite Lyrique", a digital creation and broadcasting facility to open in Paris in 2010. In the next two years, the cities will extend the Sebastian project, which connects training facilities for film post-production. Their collaboration also involves forming digital economy networks, encouraging high-tech start-ups by facilitating their welcome in the two cities.
