France & Luxembourg

Today we reached our last destination in Paris, France, after driving through 27 countries in 23 days. We’re ahead of schedule, and still have a few more adventures planned! We had three interviews today: Dr. Anna Chioti, Head of Pharmacy and Medicines at Luxembourg Health Directorate - Direction de la Santé, Dr. Jens Schwamborn at OrganoTherapeutics, and Marc Jacobs, CEO of Molecular Plasma Group (MPG).

 

The sightseeing today really was a mix of old and new world, with castles in Luxembourg City, renovated steel mills in Belval Industrial Park, and the Technoport Hall innovator hub where MPG has their facility in Foetz, Luxembourg. All before fueling up and hitting the road to cross the border into France to reach Paris in the rainy early evening.
