Rendez-vous à la française at VŠE

As part of the Innovation Week at the VŠE, the Rendez-vous à la française project took place on 30 March 2023. It has been co-organised by the VŠE Event Centre, the Department of Romance Languages and the IFTG. Besides those departments, French Embassy got involved in the form of a lecture led by Ambassador Alexis Dutertre on the topic “France – the land of innovation” but also 14 French companies and other institutions participated through their stands or workshops aimed at students.

The programme of the event started at 9:00 a.m. with an introductory lecture by Mr. Ambassador, followed by a presentation by Ms. Dita Pasquier – a Director of KB Private Banking. Then, from 10:30 a.m. onwards, an exhibition of the participating companies’ stands with workshops took place simultaneously in the RB Atrium. From 12:00 there was also a buffet with French-style refreshments for the students.

The event was attended by many invited high school students and up to 200 participants from among the students of the Prague University of Economics and Business, who had the opportunity to get closer to French culture, gain valuable knowledge of the career world or get contacts and job offers from the exhibiting companies.
