The Trade and Investment Office (Délégation Commerciale du Royaume-Uni à Lyon) is the new technologies office of DIT for the whole of France.

We assist British companies in new, emerging and innovative technologies, notably life sciences, healthcare, medical & scientific instruments, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, ICT, communications, electronics, environment, water, chemicals and advanced materials; analyse their needs and best path to market and provide operational assistance to access the French market.

In addition the office identifies inward investment opportunities in the Rhône-Alpes region and passes them through to the Department for International Trade at the Embassy. We maintain good relationships with French companies present in the UK and the local government commercial agencies.

Please note that consular services for this region are being provided by staff at the British Consulate in Marseille.
