Collaborative R&D projects

Collaborative projects are implemented by consortia of partners, bringing together players from the worlds of academic research, technical centres and companies with an avowed desire to pool resources.

To be approved by Elastopole, projects must have a link with at least one of the 6 areas of focus and have an impact on economic and social development.
Collaborative R&D projects may be funded by the state, local authorities, the National Research Agency, BPI France (public investment bank), European funds, ADEME (environment and energy control agency), ...
