Our assets

  • At the end of 2011, the Cluster had over 500 Images & Réseaux-certified projets, including 210 which had obtained funding (see The funded projects). The SME Call for Projects, one of the first of its kind in France, has been a success, enabling member SME to access the benefits of collaborative R&D more quickly.
  • Collaborative areas made available to our members and our projects.
  • ImaginLab, one of the reference open platforms in Europe for interoperability and usage tests on fixed and mobile networks. See ImaginLab
  • National influence: Images & Réseaux has a full communication and influence strategy which enables it to create visibility for projects, labs and member SME in the most significant specialist and economic media in France.
  • International influence: the competitiveness of its actors and the attractiveness of the region are enhanced by the maximum visibility that the Images & Réseaux cluster can provide on the international stage. A series of actions have lead to cooperation agreements being signed and involvement in international projects see International
