20 . 05 . 2024

The signing of a partnership between the Cluster EDEN and Techtera, on April 18 at ITECH during the cluster’s General Meeting, marks a significant step in the landscape of innovation in Defence and Security.

The EDEN Cluster is the voice outlet for small/medium enterprises working in the Defence, Security and Safety sectors. It is supported in particular by the DGA (French Ministry of Defence) and represents an ecosystem of 120 small/medium enterprises.

This group combines technical expertise and perfect knowledge of operational needs. This makes the offers and proposals of its members more coherent and competitive, in both civil and military fields.

The aim of this partnership is to facilitate the emergence and development of cooperation to promote innovation and competitivity.

To implement this collaboration:

  • Animation activities, with a view to setting up joint projects and developing partnerships: Participation of Techtera in Eden Work Groups dedicated to operator equipment, organisation of joint workshops linked to the themes of high equipment performance & smart textiles/wearables.
  • Pooling action of mutual interest: Co-organisation of events, workshops, information relay, etc.

By combining their expertise and resources, the EDEN Cluster and Techtera are committed to meeting the most complex challenges – They encourage the deployment of textile projects in the fields of security and defence.
