THE NETWORK EFFECT
The IAR Network service mobilises networks, establishes partnerships and organises events to support members in their innovation projects and help them to meet their future business partners.
Facilitating the Cluster’s strategic partnerships
Promoting members’ activities
Organising meetings and discussions (conferences, technical days, workshops etc) to support networking and linking opportunities between academia, business, investors etc.
IMPLEMENTING STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS
The IAR Cluster collaborates with partner organisations to support its work (innovation projects, investment, industrialisation and training) for its members. In addition, the Cluster is setting up partnerships with major international conferences, bringing them to its home regions (Hauts-de-France and Grand Est), for example the Protein Summit which was organised by IAR.
THE PROTÉINES FRANCE EXAMPLE
IAR facilitates and coordinates Protéins France, a highly strategic network for the Cluster given its aims and the challenges it seeks to address. Including companies from across the whole value chain, the Protéins France network aims to be a catalyst for the development of plant-based and alternative proteins, to position France as a global agricultural and industrial leader in this sector.
PROMOTING MEMBERS’ ACTIVITIES
Increasing member visibility to speed up their development is one of the main aims of the IAR Network. To successfully carry out this mission, delegations of IAR Cluster member companies attend international conferences such as the BIO World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology and Bioprocesses, EFIB, FIE etc.

Workshops, technical days, conferences, international delegations… Many events are organised by the Cluster to help members improve their market knowledge, facilitate networking and encourage partnerships. Not to mention major annual meetings such as the 24H or GA which offer members an exclusive moment to meet.
