Information to move forward
Innovative technological platforms at your service
Lyon believes that cooperation is an essential ingredient for progress. The city has thus ensured that technological platforms can emerge there. Their role? Bringing know-how together around a common topic, and pooling strengths which each group would not be able to exploit individually. A wonderful driver for the economic and industrial life of tomorrow.
