Cleantech businesses: build tomorrow's world with the Métropole de Lyon
Lyon at the cutting edge of innovation
Cleantech businesses bring together the most advanced technologies with natural resources and energy for a more efficient and environmentally friendly productivity... to build your city of tomorrow. Clean technologies are a particular focus of Greater Lyon, a sustainable city.
I want to develop my network with the competitiveness clusters
Thanks to its many competitiveness clusters, Greater Lyon allows you to find information and develop a unique network.
Axelera is working to mix chemistry and the environment. Environmental and social concerns as sources of innovation, promising solutions and long-term jobs. Come and find out more, discuss and develop your network at the many events held by Axelera (the Axelera Thursdays, the Technical Tuesdays, etc.). Register now!
LUTB Transport & Mobility Systems is the only competitiveness cluster in Europe based on public transport of people and goods in an urban environment. Every two months, the LUTB Meetings allow you to discover the area of expertise of a member (lab, SME, group, training centre etc.)
I want to finance my projects
To support you in funding your cleantech projects, the Métropole de Lyon has joined forces with the FUI scheme (Single Inter-Ministerial Fund) which assists collaborative R&D projects (SME’s, key accounts, laboratories) of competitiveness clusters, concerning products and services which can be launched on the market in the short or medium term.
The scheme launched two calls for projects per year, and the ideas selected are then offered aid from the State and the local authorities concerned.
