Initially created in the Midi-Pyrénées region, it was extended to the Languedoc-Roussillon region on January 1, 2016 when the regions merged to form Occitanie. Robotics Place is resolutely business-oriented.
Robotics Place is aimed at players in industrial and service robotics, as well as all suppliers of technological building blocks in the sector, research or training organizations and robot users.
Robotics Place has structured its actions around 3 objectives.
Encourage the emergence of collaborative projects and partnerships, the sharing of resources
To help start-ups emerge
Develop services of watch / economic intelligence
Promote existing training programs and create new ones to meet the needs of companies
Develop relationships with other French and foreign clusters or business groups
Search for new markets and new sectors for the development of the sector (new products, new companies)
Supporting companies in their growth
Promote exchanges between manufacturers and users of robots.
Communicate on the cluster and on behalf of its members (website, press releases, presentations)
Organize or federate the participation of the members in events (conferences, fairs, symposiums)
To follow and develop the relations with the institutional actors
We initiated the creation of the French Federation of Robotics Clusters with the other French robotics clusters: Aquitaine Robotics, Coboteam, Proxinnov and Réseau 3R. Within this framework, we are working on broader collaborations and in particular on international projects.
Through the FFC Robotique, we are a member of an international network, the GRC (Global Robot Cluster) which includes 21 countries: USA, Russia, South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand, India, Israel, Spain, Finland, Romania, Turkey, Pakistan, Lithuania, Philippines, Malaysia, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and France. France is one of the founding members of the GRC and is a member of the board of directors as vice-president.
Robotics Place is supported in its development by many institutional actors and works with regional innovation and development organizations.
