The Lyon-based TECHTERA cluster has established itself as a key actor within the regional textile ecosystem. The “Pôle de compétitivité“ has become an integral part of the region’s economic development, internationalisation and R&I strategies and is a strategic partner for the Regional Council of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes to facilitate regional industrial transition. Since its establishment in 2005, the cluster, in close collaboration with the region’s other innovation clusters, contributed to regional efforts to relocate industrial activities and helped strengthen industrial and technological sovereignty by initiating cross-sectoral R&I projects on areas such as Industry of the Future and Circular Economy. By stepping-up its participation in European projects, TECHTERA also contributed to the development of new value chains for its members.
