What is a Pole of Competitiveness ?


A Pole of Competitiveness brings together large and small businesses, research laboratories and training establishments within a well identified territory and on a given theme. Its purpose is to support innovation, to encourage the development of particularly innovative collaborative Research and Development(R&D) projects.

In this way it creates growth and employment.
The challenge is to rely on the synergy and the trust established between the players via concrete cooperation on collaborative and innovative projects. This means allowing businesses involved to take a leading role in their respective domains both in France and at an international level.

Other partners, including national and local public authorities are actively involved.
