Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region news

Creation of a digital expertise platform for cosmetics, to assess the risk levels of content/container

The CosmeBooste project is financially supported by the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, in order to "Boost the competitiveness of strategic regional sectors". Supported by a regional consortium of 7 public and private partners in the cosmetics and plastics industries, its ambition is to achieve three objectives:

  • to identify regional skills and promote the sector in the region
  • to provide a digital expertise platform on the assessment of content/container risks,
  • and thus to promote eco-design through the integration of recycled material

The challenge will be to create a digital expertise platform, developing predictive models based on the assessment of risks linked to the exposure of substances in packaging materials, potentially harmful to human health.

The project started in June 2021 and will last for 3 years with a total budget of 900 k€.

PLASTIC VELAY: Opening of a third place devoted to plasturgy innovation

Plastic Velay is located in the Villettes, at the heart of the 2nd concentration of French plasturgy companies. It is a collaborative space dedicated to plasturgy players. This third site, driven by the Polymeris competitiveness cluster, offers meeting rooms and offices for rent, along with an open space encouraging dialogue, in a newly-built building.

The industrial basin of Haute-Loire for flexible extrusion applications amounts to 40 establishments and 2500 jobs. This area’s players are in need of facilities and services linked to a strong growth in the fields of innovation and development. It requires access to ICT (Information and Communications Technology) tools, while the companies sometimes lack the means to invest in said tools. The platform current lacks said equipped and lively sharing spaces. In order to meet this expectation, the plasturgy industrialists present on the platform have called on Plastipolis. Established in the city of the Villettes, near the industrialists, the PLASTIC VELAY project has been offering a unique space for meeting and dialogue between plasturgy professionals since the 1st of October of 2020. It allows the assembly of various players belonging to the plasturgy branch with a wide range of skills, on a single site. This physical and virtual meeting space—with the use of ICT tools—makes the free sharing of resources, skills and knowledge possible today.

The aim is to offer a “resource” area where platform players, whether industrial or rather corporate, may find the support they require for developing or perpetuating their business. Possible customers include not only companies, but public structures too. The use of this tool allows for developing networks between users by encouraging collaborations, especially of economic nature. Indeed, with its configuration and the presence of a friendly space, all the players regularly using this tool will create a network that may result in the creation of synergies or collaborations.

Finally, this third place will allow for developing collaborative projects within the platform. Indeed, the use of ICT tools will provide closer contact with other partners and contribute to a smoother performance of the tasks. Measures will hence be taken for introducing financing tools and allowing projects to be launched. Polymeris offers an entertainment calendar including technical seminar on themes such as: circular economy, recycling or the introduction of new technologies. The cluster will carry on providing support for setting up innovation projects, establishing consortium, searching for partners...

This project receives financing from the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region (FEDER) and the Marches du Velay Rochebaron Community of Townships.

POLYMERIS is established in the Campus Numérique (Digital Campus) of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region

Polymeris, le pôle de compétitivité des secteurs caoutchoucs, plastiques et composites issu début 2021 de la fusion entre les pôles Elastopôle et Plastipolis, a intégré dans sa stratégie et feuille de route une priorité forte sur les sujets de la transition numérique, et est partenaire du Campus Numérique de la Région Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes où une partie de son équipe est localisée.

Polymeris est présent depuis le début d’année sur ce Campus qui ouvre officiellement ses portes cette année à Charbonnières-les-Bains avec un premier lot d’infrastructures de 10 000 m² équipé pour la formation et le travail collaboratif.

Polymeris, the competitiveness cluster in the field of rubbers, plastics and composites resulting from the fusion of the Elastopôle and Plastipolis clusters in early 2021, incorporated a major priority about digital transition matters to its strategy and roadmap, and is the partner of the Campus Numérique of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region, where part of its team is located.

Polymeris has been present since the beginning of the year on this Campus, which will officially open its doors this year in Charbonnières-les-Bains with a first 10,000 m² range of facilities devoted to training and collaborative work.

Half of the premises is devoted to training activities. A quarter of them is devoted to competitiveness clusters, other clusters and partners. The purpose of the latter’s presence is to assist the companies in preparing their digital projects (ENE - Entreprise & Numérique and Digital League) and their innovation course (Minalogic and Polymeris). Their presence focuses on promoting digital technology in every economic sector.

The last quarter is set aside for technological platforms on key industry of the future fields: the Usine du Campus (Campus Factory). This space is dedicated to innovating, in order to test new technologies and help introducing them to companies. This digitalised factory gathers four industrial consortiums involving companies, schools, laboratories which provide a unique and immersive experience within industry 4.0. The companies that wish to take a step towards digital transformation may access these technological platform and thus discover a genuine “smart factory”, test future industry technologies (digital twin, robotics, artificial intelligence, connected objects, 5G, big data…) while being supported by experts, no matter their maturity or their knowledge of the subject, to go from the idea to the project.

The presence of Polymeris is all the more important due to the European Commission involving it in the creation of Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH) and due to the tasks in the process of being set up in the context of the DIH Polytronics project, which shall be dedicated to the polymer and textile sectors. The Swarm company is one of Polytronics’ partners already present on the Campus, developing collaborative and creative innovative services (creative lab, production lab, learning lab) mainly dedicated to designing and prototyping smart polymer products. Other partners belonging to the field of plasturgy, composites and rubbers might round off this presence within the next few months in order to harness the opportunities of cooperating with players of the digital sector, regarding either skill sharing or setting up projects in common.

Campus Région du Numérique

Located on an 11-hectare site in Charbonnières-les-Bains, the Campus Région du Numérique accommodates schools and training organisation, companies, digital transformation players, competitiveness clusters, and other clusters. The Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region invests about 52 million euro in this project, which was launched on the 4th of January of 2021.
