FRANCE-ISRAEL EXPERT INNOVATION - MINISTÈRE DES AFFAIRES ÉTRANGÈRES FRANÇAIS Val d’Isère 2015

Appointed in Tel-Aviv in Feb. 2014 by the French Foreign Ministry, Anne is the first of 10 “International Innovation experts” posted around the globe to foster technological partnerships. After a few months of pioneer and enthusiastic activity, 28 Research & Innovation projects have already been jointly submitted by French and Israeli companies, for a total budget of around Euro 50 Million.

This achievement was facilitated by a fully bi-cultural background and her expertise in Sustainability and Cleantech, which lies at the core of most breakthrough innovations. Anne is a Political Sciences graduate of both Israeli and French academy.

As early as 1992, right after the Earth Summit in Rio, she had the opportunity to integrate the UN system as a sustainable development consultant, taking part to hearings and intergovernmental conferences in all 5 continents, positioned at the very heart of Climate Change world policy making.

In 2000, she left the UN to start working on bilateral relations and managed the France-Israel Chamber of Commerce. Under Bernard Attali chairmanship, she launched the first edition of the “Rencontres économiques et technologiques France-Israel”, still running today, paving the way for lots of technological partnerships between the two countries. It is also at that time that she started to promote the – then new – Israeli film Festival in Paris, where she played an essential cultural mediation role all over the years.

Later, Anne became an independent consultant and public speaker acting amongst others as Chief Corporate Responsibility Officer for IT group Prodware 2009-2014, combining business, technology and environmental concerns. The French IT integrator Prodware made all the way to the Top 3 of the Gaia sustainability Index – where it remains since 2011, for the services sector category.
