Settle Franche-
Comte

WE’VE HAD A HEAD START FOR CENTURIES.

Here, we are happy to blend leading-edge technology and ancient traditions. Better still: it’s thanks to our skills from the past that we are building the technologies of the future. This enables our cutting-edge industries to maintain a competitive position in technological sectors such as microtechnology, car manufacturing, plastics and the food industry. Are tradition and innovation incompatible? The answer would seem to be ‘no’, since our region is the No.1 in terms of both micro- and nano-technologies, watch making, spectacle making, toys and turnery. You have to conclude that a look back at the past gives you a clearer vision of the future.
