This report is the result of the mission on acceleration platforms for the industry of the future entrusted to Anne-Laure Cattelot by the Prime Minister in October 2018.
The industry of the future represents an opportunity for competitiveness and attractiveness for French companies. As such, the report aimed to propose concrete solutions for business leaders in the industrial sector, who are currently facing two major challenges: the transition to a decarbonized and more circular economy, and digital transformation.
The report shows that, in the face of these changes, industrial technical centres (ITCs) and professional economic development committees (PEDCs) play an essential role in supporting SMEs, in particular to innovate, acquire mastery of the technologies of the industry of the future, develop and internationalise.
Following the submission of the report, the Government wishes to redefine a working framework with the CTIs and CPDEs, reaffirming their strategic priorities and putting in place new objectives and performance contracts for the period 2020-2022, in order to increase their impact in the transformation of our industry.
