IAR Pole (France)
IAR is the French bioeconomy cluster. It brings together over 360 stakeholders from farmer cooperatives, research organisations and universities to venture capital firms, start-ups, SMEs and large industries, including end-users, around a common goal: the optimal use of renewable resources. IAR focuses on all dimensions of the bioeconomy: from feedstock production to its valorisation into food, industrial (bio-based chemicals and biobased materials) and energy (biofuels and biogas) applications. IAR supports the development of the bioeconomy in France and, more specifically, in the regions of Hauts-de-France and Grand Est.
