Focus on our clubs

Polymeris has set itself the objective of promoting innovation and stimulating exchanges and collaborative projects between players in the plastics, composites and rubber industries.

To do this, Polymeris offers all of its members and partners a new format for involvement in the innovation process: industrial clubs, focused on key themes for the development and future of the plastics industry, composites and rubber.

This sets out the operating principles as well as the organization of these industrial clubs.

The general objectives of these industrial clubs are to:

  • Promote and accelerate the industrialization of new technologies,
  • Strengthen the cluster's network dynamics,
  • Coordinate actions with scientific, technological or economic experts,
  • Support the dissemination of feedback and good practices,
  • Create the best conditions for the implementation of innovation projects,
  • Encourage “business” cooperation between industrial players in the cluster.
  • Collectively respond to the individual needs and questions of industrialists and club players.
