President’s editorial

The French Competitiveness Clusters Alliance (AFPC) was founded with the remit of representing competitiveness clusters and coordinating their activities with national and European public authorities. As such, we bring together over forty clusters in order to enhance their activity and raise their profile. 

Competitiveness clusters group together academic players and private and public companies of all sizes, contributing to business growth, the development of collaborative innovative projects and job creation. 

Their members include over 10,000 innovative SMEs from across France.  

Since 2005, over €7.5 billion have been invested in more than 2,000 collaborative projects. Over half of this funding has been allocated to SMEs and mid-caps. These projects – overseen and accredited with a label by the competitiveness clusters – have made it possible to generate an average of €2.50 in private funding for every euro invested by the French State. 


Building on this experience and its local ties, the AFPC aims to represent the clusters' activities, contribute to the French public innovation policy and promote French innovation in Europe and internationally.
