Emergence of ideas

Learn about new technologies and expand your network

The emergence of ideas is the start of any innovative process and can take different forms. In order to increase your capacity for innovation, Techtera offers you several opportunities according to your needs:

The clubs

Three thematic clubs are open to Techtera members, in connection with the strategic targets identified by the sector: smart materials, circular economy and Industry of the future

These clubs, consisting of manufacturers, laboratories and schools, meet four to six times a year. They are a place for discussion on a common theme. For club members, the meetings allow them to monitor, expand their network, visit firms and laboratories and launch joint innovation projects.

How to participate?

The clubs are reserved for Techtera members. Each club has a confidentiality charter so that they can discuss things with confidence.

To participate in the different clubs, contact the club manager.
