 *  Information about FET projects in our "La vie des projets" section, featuring FOCUS, OCTOPUS, PHORBITECH and CG LEARNING

We are also launching our first annual reader survey to hear from you and what you think about this newsletter. It should not take more than 5 min for you to complete, and we would greatly appreciate your feedback!
