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.

Polymeris sets up in the Clermont-Ferrand ecosystem

As part of its new development strategy, Polymeris has opened a new office in Clermont-Ferrand. The new offices are located in Hall 32 of the Campus des Métiers et Qualifications autour de l'Industrie in the heart of the Cataroux park. A new innovation officer joined the cluster in early May.

This new location in the Parc Cataroux will enable Polymeris to be as close as possible to the Clermont-Ferrand ecosystem, its local members and in particular IPC, academics such as the Institut de Chimie, the Université de Clermont Auvergne and the CNEP. The Park was born out of Michelin's desire to continue developing its historic site in the heart of Clermont Ferrand. Conceived and realized with public and private players, educational organizations, entrepreneurs, multinationals, SMEs and startups, as well as representatives of civil society, the Parc Cataroux aims to be a collective response to the technological and economic challenges of today and tomorrow.

Meet our members at Global Industrie

GLOBAL INDUSTRIE is the only French event that brings together the entire industrial ecosystem, the entire value chain, and all user markets. The recipe for success: a global technological offer, a real showcase of innovation, a watch on emerging trends and signals, a political and institutional focal point.
 
In four editions, Global Industrie has established itself as one of the world's leading trade shows dedicated to industry. Its resolutely modern positioning, oriented towards both the industry of the future and the international arena, explains the success of its previous editions, which take place in even-numbered years in Paris and in odd-numbered years in Lyon.
This geographical diversification has enabled the event to enrich both its offer and its visitor base.
 
Many members will be present at the show, so don't hesitate to meet them on their stands!
