French Hub

The French Hub was launched on 5 December 2012 in Paris and is chaired by Marc Clément and Sylvaine Poillot-Peruzzetto. The Hub aims to encourage ELI Members living in France to take an active part in the Institute’s work. It was created to assist in arranging occasional presentations of ELI’s work and to facilitate discussion of ELI projects in the native language of the Institute’s French-speaking Members and in the presence of the professional organisations which have become ELI Observers. 

Upon joining ELI, one becomes a member of the Hub in their country of residence or seat, provided no objections are raised. You can find the list of Individual Members by country of residence here.
