Interclustering network

Whether at a regional level or relating to areas of technological focus, Elastopole takes active part alongside other competitiveness clusters in organising actions to produce a positive outcome for the rubber and polymers sector.


Regional networks

  • In the Centre region :


Competitiveness cluster network : S2E2, DREAM, Cosmetic Valley and clusters (participation in the Clusters O’ Centre operation run by France Clusters, together with the competitiveness clusters’ Entreprise Innovante accreditation, economic intelligence training in 2013 and 2014).

  • In the Ile de France region :


Network of clusters in Ile de France, regional polymer materials cluster, collaboration with automotive market clusters (Mov’éo) and aeronautical (ASTech).

  • In the Pays de la Loire region :


Loire clusters network. Participation in the annual meetings of regional clusters (including ID4CAR and EMC2) Presence of an Elastopole project representative at the EMC2 Technocampus.

  • In the Auvergne region :


Network of Auvergne competitiveness clusters with Céréales Vallée and ViaMéca.


Subject-specific network

  • Mechanics and materials clusters : Mécafuture


The network of French mechanics and materials clusters links eight competitiveness clusters, including ViaMéca, Plastipolis, Matéralia, EMC2, Arve Industrie, Pole Nucléaire, Microtechniques…and the GOSPI cluster.


Joint projects and international programmes take place within this framework.

  • Chemistry and green chemistry :


IAR, Céréales Vallée, AXELERA…

  • Automotive :


Moveo, ID4CAR, Véhicule du futur, ARIAs and Plate Forme Automobile…

  • Miscellaneous markets :


Nova Child (children’s cluster in Cholet), UP-TEX and Techtera (technical textiles clusters), MAUD (sustainable usage materials), TEAM2 (recycling cluster), Itrans (railway cluster), etc.

  • IRT and IEED/ITE contacts :


Elastopole would also like to develop relations with organisations created under Investissements d’avenir (Jules Verne and M2P technology research institutes) and the Institute for Energy Transition (Pivert, IFMAS, IDEEL, etc.).



Finally, Elastopole is a member of France Cluster and is examining its involvement in a recently created national association of competitiveness clusters, whose aim will be to encourage support for the "competitiveness clusters innovation company" accreditation, the object of which is to give visibility to innovative companies vis à vis investors.
