The Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region is a unique ecosystem in France where SMEs are the leading employer and almost 50% of French mid-cap companies are present. One of its specificities is to have a very strong industrial sector and is actually the 1st industrial footprint region in France (over 480,000 jobs) with more than more than 30 000 industrial companies, including many start-ups, equipment manufacturers and top-tier partners of our country’s major industries. The Region is also considered to be a highly innovative hot spot, both at the national and EU scale, thanks to the presence of 2 internationals Research Technical Organisations (CEA & INRIA) within a network of 8 major national research centers, one of the four national multidisciplinary Institutes in Artificial Intelligence (MIAI), 22 competitiveness clusters innovating in the region's fields of excellence. Finally, the Region is very dynamic in the development of the digital economy and has invested more than 650M€. As a result, in 5 years, the number of companies in the sector has risen from 2,500 to more than 4,800 and the digital sector employs close to 70 000 people.
