What is a cluster?
A cluster is a network composed mainly of companies but also of research centres and public organisations. It is a true ecosystem that brings together all the players in a given sector or sub-sector.
To access each of these networks and enjoy their many advantages, you must become a member and therefore meet certain criteria.
The mission and services of a cluster

The circlemade cluster is open to all sectors of activity. It targets companies that fit at least one of the business models of the circular economy, which aims to keep resources in the economic cycle and free itself from the notion of waste.
