About the GRIF Club

The GRIF Club is an annual event organized for GRIF users where updates and new features of the GRIF software suite and its modules are presented. Each year, the event is held in Paris, at TotalEnergies headquarters.

The GRIF Club is not just a place for discussing technical features, it's also somewhere to:

Agenda of the GRIF Club 2023

For the first time, a GRIF Club will be dedicated to our foreigners users.
Attend the GRIF Club 2023 to learn about new features of the 2023 GRIF version, to discover industrial projects carried out with the GRIF software suite, and to discuss the essential task and challenges that should be considered the next year to meet your needs. 

28 March 2023. Time zone of Paris (UTC +1). Format: remote via Microsoft Teams.
