Elastopôle, the French competitiveness cluster for the rubber and polymers sector, has set ambitious objectives for itself, particularly support for SMEs and medium size companies, to increase their levels of innovation and employment.


What are Elastopôles’s objectives ?

  • To participate in the development of new materials, products, processes and innovative functions,
  • To promote innovation, the business growth and company competitiveness, particularly with regard to SMEs,
  • Establish a network between researchers and trainers on the one hand and the world of industry on the other,
  • To develop international and inter-cluster collaboration : plastics, composites, machinery, automotive, aeronautics, etc.
  • To provide an anchor for employment in the centre’s catchment areas.


The drivers behind the Centre, a well-built and effective network :

  • International groups, global leaders, stars of French industry,
  • A network of SMEs with acknowledged industrial know-how,
  • More than 3,500 researchers (public and private research) across the four regions,
  • Major colleges and universities with skills in polymers,
  • Associated industries, both up and downstream,
