Your competitiveness cluster in Centre-Val-de-Loire region

First French region for the production of industrial rubber. This region has decided to include in its strategy of intelligent specialization from 2019 the creation of a new area of specialization in the form of a horizontal measure dedicated to reindustrialization.

This will be done through the implementation of a multi-material approach of which Polymeris is the pilot with the CNRS and which is organized in close connection with the ongoing project of MATEX Research and Development Alliance on materials in extreme conditions which federates 9 regional research laboratories, in connection with the industrial fabric and with the ambition to obtain the creation in 2023 of a new dedicated Carnot Institute.
