Through its technology parks, Innovaud can offer companies an ideal choice for setting up their site.

Innovaud collaborates with the technology parks who are the founders of the Association. Technology parks are designed to encourage synergies between determined innovative companies within a given geographic area by pooling local infrastructure and technical skills. They are thus an excellent springboard for innovative projects.
