Elastopôle, the French competitiveness cluster for the rubber and polymers sector, is looking to become a European reference with a deep understanding of the whole of the value chain for rubbers and polymers with sustainable development and economic efficiency in mind.
The cluster’s work should increase the competitiveness of the French economy and provide growth in employment in relevant markets :
- By creating a discussion network between industrial companies (groups, medium size companies and SMEs), research structures (academic and private) and training.
- By increasing the effort made to innovate (a factory for R&D projects and future products).
- By supporting mainly industrial companies with a high technology content within its coverage area.
- By improving the attractiveness of France through increased international visibility.
