VEGEPOLYS: International Cluster

Martine Joly - 15/02/16

 

VEGEPOLYS : A unique force in Europe
4 000 companies – 30 000 jobs – 450 researchers – 2 500 students – 25 higher training courses

Born on the territory of the Pays de la Loire, the French state gave the label "competitiveness cluster" in July 2005 to VEGEPOLYS. As a competitive cluster with worldwide reach, VEGEPOLYS is open to the world, is developing its own international network and making partnerships with other French and non-French clusters.

 

VEGEPOLYS is founded on a historical tradition of production in the Pays de la Loire region of France.
The pedoclimatic conditions in the region and the vitality and know-how of its companies have attracted national and local government support for several decades, enabling the region to become the leader in the specialised plants field.
The Pays de la Loire region is alone in Europe in bringing together in a single geographical area both private enterprise and public research and training establishment a major European force in the plant world, on which VEGEPOLYS is based.

 

Making businesses more competitive
The creation of value does not just involve product innovations, but also all other kinds of innovation: human resources management, production processes, marketing, logistics... VEGEPOLYS’ role is to organise and provide an impetus, in order to identify common problems and lead project groups. These activities take the form of workshops and strategy meetings.

 

International events
VEGEPOLYS’ reputation is growing thanks to its presence at numerous events with its partners, and its actions toward key players:

 

·         Participation in international exhibitions in France : SIVAL, Salon du Vin, Salon du végétal
