How projects emerge

To enable projects with a high value added to emerge, the cluster’s staff works closely with those involved in R&D, both academic and industrial, and assists them in setting up projects through to the proving of new products, services, and so on, in the market.


Elastopole’s future projects and products factory is based on a dual approach :

  • A bottom up approach which requires the cluster to listen to the thoughts of its members about ideas for projects and assist them in putting together and setting the focus for such projects,
  • A top down approach based on the work done by the Cluster’s scientific council, whose purpose is to identify major issues and subjects for promising development projects.


Among the tools which we offer for enabling R&D work to progress towards the industrialisation of innovations, Elastopole organises working groups which meet on "Emergence" days.


These days are ideal opportunities for efforts made in various research subjects or economic or social topics to come together to create value.


Three Emergence Days were organised by the Elastopole project team in early 2014, covering the following subjects :

  • Nanomaterials
  • Fatigue and ageing in elastomers
  • Surface treatments
  • Bio-sourced raw materials


Some working groups, set up following these meetings, are still current.


For any question about the emergence of projects, you can contact Elastopole project representatives.
