Arturia as part of Music Tech «à la française»?

Has Arturia been partnering up with other French organizations? Has the French government been receptive to projects involving Arturia and its peers? Does it matter at all that Aodyo, Émilie Gillet, Expressive E, UVI, Intuitive Instruments (dualo), Joué, and Ircam are all based in France (not to mention Selmer and Buffet Crampon)?
Maybe not.

Been wondering for a while about relationships between diverse companies in France which release the kinds of products we use for “musicking”. Not that I think there’s something so specific about French businesses when it comes to music technology. It’s more about the emergence of something of an innovation ecosystem with music as a core part.
Funnily enough, I was recently made aware of Music Tech France, which has been part of a forum about French entrepreneurship. While the tech and people involved are quite interesting (especially for someone like me who cares about Data Literacy), it’s quite another type of “music tech” than the one produced by Arturia or those discussed on SonicTalk. Unless I’m mistaken, most of those things have little to do with creating and producing music using computers and other electronic devices.

So, some insight as to connections between these French orgs would be appreciated.
