The 12th November of 2018, ACTIVAGE participated in the exhibition area of the GovTech Summit in Paris. This event was organised by public and supported by French President Emmanuel Macron; Paris Mayor, Anne Hidalgo and the European Commission.
The 2018 GovTech Summit featured more than 90 international speakers, covering topics from transport to healthcare, security to international development, e-government to citizen engagement.
