POLE AVENIA went from 51 mostly academic members in 2012 to over 200 members in 2019, of which 130 are companies (2/3) - 15 larger groups or medium size & 115 SMEs

Since it was labelled as a "competitiveness cluster" by the French government in 2010, POLE AVENIA has supported over 120 collaborative RD&I projects, about 65 of which have been granted public funding, representing a cumulative budget of close to 165 M€ and a cumulative public funding of 70 M€.

In 2016, POLE AVENIA inaugurated the first ever start-up incubator dedicated to geoscience & subsurface energy in France, called GEOSTART in 2016 - which currently hosts 6 start-ups in Pau, southwest France, where the cluster is located.

Every year, in June, the cluster hosts its international BtoB convention with delegations from all countries, more specifically the SMEs, to jointly access international markets.
