Deploy your projects in Europe and internationally
If you have an industrial project that you wish to develop, then take advantage of the cluster's support. This will enable you to raise funds, find the right partners, and make your skills and capabilities known by taking advantage of the Polymeris network and its many opportunities to gain visibility at both the national and European levels.

Boost your European ambition
Are you looking for a European call for projects to finance your project? Do you want to analyze the maturity of your innovation in front of European markets?
Polymeris lists the European Calls for Projects and the opportunities for its members. We regularly monitor the results of ongoing projects, but also the winning projects in order to better identify the themes already funded and the relevant partners. Polymeris represents its members in EU networks and national authorities to influence the presence of materials and industry in future calls for projects.
The Polymeris European network
Discover the different types of partners on which the cluster relies to develop your European ambition.
Monitor and identify projects and partners for collaborative projects on key topics for our industry: lightweighting of materials (ELCA), circular economy & recycling of polymers (ECP4), industry 4.0 (EIT Manufacturing) and influence the drafting of future European calls for projects.
Link developments in laboratories and universities with the needs of industry.
Work with other European clusters on the development of cluster services such as the creation of collaborative projects and internationalization strategies.

Find the best funding window
Are you looking for European funding?
Polymeris puts you in touch with partners and a coordinator. We accompany you from the reading of the calls for proposals, through the different funding opportunities (collaborative projects, voucher, cascade funding, ...) as well as the editing (proofreading and writing support) and the preparation to pitch.
How does it work?
Cascade funding projects are an excellent opportunity to create a network between principals and SMEs on a European scale. These projects also allow SMEs to access European projects and funding through simplified and adapted applications.
The observation that "classic" collaborative projects funded by the framework program (Horizon 2020 and now Horizon Europe) are not necessarily adapted to all and can be too high a step to take.
To encourage the participation of small organizations (start-ups and SMEs) in European projects, by proposing smaller projects with fewer partners than the "classic" collaborative projects of the Framework Program.
Financial support to Third Parties (FSTP), otherwise known as 'Cascade Funding' - with delegation of funding allocation.
Partners respond as a consortium to a Horizon Europe call and are funded in the form of a classical project (Research Action / Research and Innovation Action), but which mentions support to third parties among the project objectives.
A portion of the budget is set aside for this third-party support at the proposal stage.
This fraction is redistributed in new calls managed by the consortium itself.
Conquer the international market
Do you want to expand internationally and need to analyze potential opportunities? Do you want to participate in industry events abroad?
Every year, Polymeris organizes collective missions in target countries: technological opportunities, meeting players, market understanding... Exploratory missions are linked with partner clusters (inter-clustering) on key themes and markets: lightweight materials, bio-based materials, circular economy, industry 4.0. We offer support at trade shows via collective stands abroad and will ensure the representation of the industry and our members at key trade shows and events in Europe and internationally.

I appreciate the actions set up by the cluster and by Annabelle for the creation of partnerships, especially the search for synergies with European partners.
