  13. 13. 2. Why invest in Paris Saclay?
  14. 14. 14 What makes France and Saclay attractive places for R&D investments ? “The reason for selecting France for R&D is the friendliness of the government agencies and the community in welcoming us, and obviously the tax credits for an R&D investment. The Saclay area is attractive because the investment in France in a major R&D center allows us to work closely with the university and with external companies and technologies that we may not have internally. It’s important as we build R&D centers for us to be in a large technical community.” Context : In 2010, Kraft Foods chose Paris Saclay to invest €15 million in a new European R&D center
