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 at Hall 32 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.

Thanks to its favorable economic fabric and the dynamism of its research laboratories and companies in the field of materials and white biotechnologies, such as Greentech, Parc Cataroux will offer a "360° offer", comprising industrial platforms, research laboratories, an innovation cluster and education/training.

The CMD "Centre des Matériaux Durables": a center of excellence dedicated to bio-sourced, recycled and/or (bio)degradable materials, to accelerate the transition to a more environmentally-friendly economy. It will concentrate all the research and industrialization activities needed to bring new technologies to market:

  • Synthesis and characterization of new (bio)degradable and recyclable materials;
  • Degradation of these materials in natural environments or by biological systems or physico-chemical processes;
  • Environmental impact, by assessing and measuring the life-cycle and societal impacts of ecological transition business models.

The CMD aims to welcome new companies to its premises. By mobilizing all of the region's resources, it aims to create more productive connections and strengthen its expertise, so as to be able to offer structured services in the near future.

Located at the heart of this ecosystem, Polymeris will be a facilitator for new companies wishing to set up in Clermont Ferrand.
