The reason behind this function was to provide an opportunity for recent graduates and current tertiary students with some background in science and technology, and wishing to share an interest in France, to meet with the aim of becoming acquainted and so establishing a basis for future similar gatherings to be arranged by AFAS Victoria.

Target participants included recent graduates and tertiary students who:

  • had already spent some time in France and wished to retain ties with France;
  • were interested in spending some time studying or working in France;
  • had a general interest in France and/or French technology;
  • were looking for an opportunity to meet periodically with people who share these interests.
