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.

POLYTRONICS, winner of the EDIH call for projects

A project to support the digitalization of polymer materials companies

POLYTRONICS is the winner of the "Initial Network of European Digital Innovation Hubs" (EDIH) call for projects launched by the European Commission to support the digitalization of polymer materials companies

Supported by the Polymeris cluster, POLYTRONICS is one of the 10 French EDIHs selected and funded by the European Commission as part of the "Digital Europe" program. This program aims to strengthen the adoption of digital technologies by companies and to build an ethical and sustainable European vision of the deployment of digital solutions for businesses (Artificial Intelligence (AI), cybersecurity and high performance computing).

The 18 members of the consortium mobilized for the construction of the POLYTRONICS application, as well as the associated partners, are delighted with this announcement which marks the starting point of a new stage in the deployment of the digital roadmap in three regions: Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Bourgogne-Franche Comté, Centre-Val de Loire.
