RETIS: Innovative Association
A national network of active members organized geographically
For nearly 20 years, RETIS has been accompanying and mobilizing its members as they develop and build innovative projects in France.
RETIS began by creating a unique network of French technopoles, BICs, and public incubators. Since 2008, it has extended its network to include school incubators and competitiveness clusters—geographic concentrations of interconnected companies. Today, the RETIS network is again open to new members and continues to be an active ecosystem for regional and national innovation.
The network is currently assisting over 800 ventures and has partnered with more than 10,000 innovative enterprises.
The activities of the RETIS network are centered on three objectives:
- Developing new services and support for the network, including a Center of Resources, Training, and Consulting
- Creating activities and resources to promote and increase the visibility and value of the members of the network. RETIS establishes national and international projects dedicated to innovative enterprises and professionals, such as Innovons Ensemble and other qualified international training programs
