L'innovation accompagnée
Our territory

La Cornouaille, a great place to innovate in the fresh air!

Away from French metropoles, at the edge of Brittany, the Cornouaille hosts new talents and inspires the creation of new activities. It differentiates itself with other territories through its creativity and economic vitality (30 000 companies, 1300 new businesses per year).

Along with a dynamic network of SMEs, the coastline (Non impacted by relocations) strengthen the South Finistere’s attractivity. Numerous innovations are possible right here in different fields: fisheries, aquaculture, seaweeds culture, biotechnologies in food and feed, cosmetics, yachting activities as well as ports and marine infrastructures.

The regional excellence is already well known regarding the quality and security of food products through ADRIA, a technical centre which has skills recognised at the European scale. The recent implantation of the CEA Tech or Labexia demonstrate the attractivity of the Cornouaille.

The Cornouaille has a digital environment certified Capitale French Tech. This recognition is a strong indicator demonstrating its excellence and its potential to bring stakeholders together. In collaboration with the Technopole Brest Iroise and Anticipa Lannion, the Technopole pools talents and accelerates the development of digital start-ups and companies.

This is a great news for the dynamism of our economic sectors as well as for employments! (170 creations of digital companies per year in Finistere).
In Cornouaille, it exists also a network of research institutes and universities (5000 students). In Quimper, we are attracting students through specific study programmes in food sector or engineering (UBO, IUT, Lycée Bréhoulou…). The double degree History of art and archaeology is one of the two existing diplomas of this kind in France. In addition, professional training programmes linked with tourism and heritage are well known at the national level.

The EMBA, a higher school of management and commerce in Quimper became famous in the whole region as well as in France thanks to its programmes (international trade, trade and sales, management) and its close links with eastern Asia (China, Japan, South Corea, Taiwan).

The Cornouaille encourages the emergence of sectors boosting activities and jobs such as renewable energies, the digital transition, circular economy, eco-friendly transport systems, …
Projects led by Sabella and Entech in Quimper, Kairos and Explore in Concarneau,  developing smart energy solutions for isolated regions such as Finistere are concrete examples of the environmental engagement for its future.

Men and Women’s self-fulfilment is at the heart of this dynamic. The Cornouaille offers a real competitive advantage for companies wishing to establish their business through the economic stakeholders network around their projects’ success.

“Building together” illustrates our set of minds for entrepreneurship in Cornouaille!
