Mission/Objectives: 

The Cluster Lumière, the first of its kind in France, has a mission to:

  • Boost innovation in new lighting technologies to meet economic challenges and encourage sustainable development
  • Promote competitiveness, cooperative businesses and international development in the sector.

The cluster Lumière is backed by the vitality of the lighting sector in the Rhône-Alpes region, aiming at bringing together partners from research and training, manufacturers, users and expert channels, as well as institutional partners.

A dynamic and innovative cluster

The Cluster Lumière numbers more than 170 companies and organisations: Laboratories, manufacturers, engineers, lighting installers and designers… The real plus of the association is the combination of various and complementary skills and expertise, with the Lyon touch in terms of lighting.
