AN INNOVATIVE

AND COLLABORATIVE PLATFORM

In the field of chemistry, developing new products or processes often takes more than three years. Development is very intensive due to the investments needed to set up research labs and create leading-edge tools.

This is why the Axel’One collaborative innovation platform was created in 2011 to pool services, tools and skills aimed at reducing the costs and risks of industrial scale-up. Since 2013, the Axel’One platform has supported R&D projects and VSEs and SMEs in the fields of advanced materials and innovative processes.

The experiments conducted on the platform range from basic research to the pre-industrial stage. They aim to meet the market challenges in areas where the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region has strengths: energy efficiency, process optimization, lightweight and bio-sourced materials.

Axel’One provides spaces adapted to R&D collaborative projects (offices, laboratories, technological halls) as well as daily support services. The platform also offers R&D services through a wide range of research and scale-up tools.
