Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, the leading French region for the diversity of its technological offer towards the aeronautics and space sector

A U V E R G N E - R H Ô N E - A L P E S

Our industry has engaged a decarbonization trajectory which should lead to net zero carbon emissions by 2050. As of now, industry players are mobilized to transform their products, processes and services, meet expectations and achieve objectives set, both in terms of decarbonization and performance.

With more than 350 aerospace companies, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region concentrates an important number of tier 1 and tier 2 industrial players able to provide solution to those major challenges.

Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, a complete network composed with

Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes can count on
