OUR GOVERNANCE

POLYMERIS, EUROPEAN REFERENCE POLE FOR THE POLYMER INDUSTRY

Our Polymeris competitiveness cluster was created in December 2020 by the merger of Plastipolis and Elastopôle. With a network of 380 active members and an ecosystem of 65 partner organizations in research and training, it has become the only French competitiveness cluster dedicated to rubbers, plastics and composites.

At the heart of tomorrow's solutions, the Polymers sector must develop even more value-creating solutions to accelerate the development of growing markets and explore new ones, while providing solid support to support our companies in ecological changes and economic future - in particular to move towards a circular economy of the polymer industry.

The Polymeris project is fully in line with these challenges with a pole recognized as an innovation benchmark for the sector on French and European territory to work in favor of a transforming, dynamic and innovative industry. Since early 2020, it has been fully launched and materializes through a presence in 6 French regions with main establishments in Bellignat (01), Orléans (45) as well as in Charbonnières-les-Bains (69) as part of the Campus Région du digital Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes.  On the other hand, the cluster has regional branches in Bordeaux (33), Dijon (21), Laval (53), Les Villettes (43), Nantes (44) and Vitry-sur-Seine 94). This regional anchoring is part of a national strategy and a European and international ambition.

With a network of 380 members and an ecosystem of 65 partner organizations in research, training, laboratories and industrial technical centres (CTI), POLYMERIS ensures its freedom of action thanks to 55% private funding and a logic of financing by project.

I would like to sincerely thank all our partners and funders who support the development of the cluster and all its projects, in particular those of companies and SMEs in our sector and in our Regions.

Our team and the pole's governance are at your disposal to support your innovation ideas, your development projects as well as all your expectations for the revitalization of our industry and its territories.

Thank you for the commitment of our members and our partners by our side,

Best regards,

President of Polymeris
