Cluster Strategy
Mission/Objectives: 

The Hippolia cluster is the only one organization dedicated to Horse industries. The cluster now comprises around 200 members grouped enterprises, research and training centers, and institutions.  These actors have cutting-edge competence in areas such as equine health (well-being, nutrition, health, reproduction ...), equestrian performance and racing, as well as digitization and horse equipment and infrastructures.

As unique player in the world, the Hippolia cluster enjoys an increasingly advanced and renowned reputation and demonstrates its ability to set up international cooperation. These partnerships will strengthen the internationalization of the ecosystem set up and will participate in the outreach of researchers, trainings, businesses, the startup group and the territory. Today, the Hippolia cluster is looking to the future by displaying a strong, clear and ambitious strategy to position the excellence of the French equine industry at the international level.

One of our primary objectives is "Europeanizing innovation", in different fields of innovation, namely equine health (well-being, nutrition, health, reproduction ...), equestrian performance and racing, as well as digitization.
