Given the evolution and the gravity of the situation regarding COVID-19, the fifth edition of Viva Technology will not take place June 11-13. Alternative solutions are being studied, in concertation with the main partners of the event, and will be announced soon.
The containment measures decreed by the national authorities in France now make it impossible to prepare and organize the event on the dates originally planned. Especially since, as announced, the containment is likely to be extended as has been the case in China and Italy. VivaTech's priority is to guarantee the health and safety of visitors, partners and staff and to show solidarity and responsibility in the face of this health crisis.
All the Startup applicants to the VivaTech Challenges will get noticed by each Challenge Partner regarding the next steps of the selection. This decision could possibly impact the results announcement date.
Our thoughts are with all those affected by this crisis.
