Your competitiveness cluster in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region

The Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region is the major region in which the cluster is based and operates, with a strong economy dedicated to chemistry and materials on an international scale and considerable potential for project development.

With its chemical and plastics valleys, it is also France's leading rubber-producing region in terms of workforce, thanks to the presence of the world's leading tire manufacturer Michelin, the only CAC 40 company to have its headquarters in the region. The cluster is in line with the regional guidelines for the industry of the future and is part of the network of 13 regional clusters with which it collaborates.
