acumen7, Grosvenor Clive & Stokes and Impulse Partners hosted an away day at Station F in Paris, the world’s largest start-up incubator. The event explored different approaches to innovation in construction and infrastructure. Presenters included Thomas Le Diouron of Impulse Partners, Guillaume Bazouin of Leonard (the VINCI Group’s innovation platform) and Paul Doney of Highways England.
As well as touring the site, attendees at the event saw first-hand a number of innovation programmes at work. The 27th June marks the second anniversary of Station F’s opening. It is a 34,000 sq m space, with over 3,000 desks in the start-up zone and 26 international start-up programmes.
