An event showcasing global innovation, VivaTechnology welcomed nearly 68,000 visitors between June 15 and 17 at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles exhibition center (Paris, 15th district). During the second edition of VivaTechnology, the IONIS education group, a partner to the event, presented thirty-some projects developed by its students and alumni. This was the perfect opportunity to highlight the synergy that exists between education and innovation in our schools, which, in addition to making the IONIS Education Group the leading school of higher education in the private sector in France, has made the Education Group #1 in computer technologies and digital media. This was demonstrated by the many Alumni who attended this event, either as exhibitors or visitors.
