Since many years, Opticsvalley has been partner or coordinator of European projects (6th and 7th FP, Innovation Express-Innet…), in order to exchange and cooperate with other optics and electronics European clusters.
Opticsvalley also participates actively in the European Technological Platform "Photonics 21".
Thanks to this strategic position, Opticsvalley supports partnership and strategic development initiatives for companies and research laboratories in the Paris region, enabling them to work effectively at a European level.
Opticsvalley is recognised as an international player, thanks to the delivery of a range of successful business support programmes: overseas missions, business conventions, participation in international conferences and cluster twinnings.
All these services are offered in partnership with regional actors for international development and in coordination with the French other optics and photonics clusters.
Opticsvalley also enables regional companies to implement successful internationalisation strategies, and helps national and regional inward investment agencies attract business to the region. For example, Opticsvalley is helping a Japanese company to implement offices in the area by organizing visits of potential partners (industry and research centers).
