Established in 1852, Hotel de l’industrie is the headquarters of the Société d'Encouragement, whose mission revolves around four pillars: encouraging entrepreneurs of tomorrow, sharing and spreading innovation, promoting French know-how and preserving industrial heritage. This historical location was home to the first projection made by the Lumière brothers, the founding act of the cinema industry in 1895.
