IAR – The French Bioeconomy Cluster
IAR is the French cluster dedicated to the Bioeconomy. It brings together more than 450 stakeholders from farmer cooperatives, research organisations and universities to VCs, start-ups, SMEs and large industries, including end-users, around a common goal: the optimal valorisation of renewable resources for food, feed, energy and industrial applications. IAR’s activities focus on supporting the development of the bio-economy in France and more specifically in the regions of Hauts-de-France and Grand Est. IAR focuses on all dimensions of the bioeconomy: from feedstock production to its valorisation into food, feed, bio-based chemicals and bio-based materials as well as energy applications.
Role in the project:
IAR will work with PNO consultants on dissemination, communication and exploitation so that the project is promoted to a wide audience. IAR will also contribute to market analysis, business model development and the business plan for the novel biorefinery concept.
