Cluster Strategy
Mission/Objectives: 

Pole ICP is a cluster of cultural and creative industries; the uniqueness of this cluster is that it brings together companies, organizations, foundations, R&D laboratories training and resources centres all involved in restoring/preserving and promoting built and intangible cultural heritage (being industrial and natural heritage included).

We have created in 2015 Archeomed which is a pooling-platform; it is physical space (an old factory) where 24 companies, all operating in culture and heritage, reside and share working spaces, resources and develop some common activities. This social innovative model enables cross fertilization and cooperative coopetition. This project is evolving into Archeomed II and this new platform will be the centre of a wider project: the rehabilitation of an industrial brownfield within an industrial wasteland of more than 12ha, which will be dedicated to developing cultural and Creative Industries on the horizon 2025.  In the vicinity of the Rhône and  Arles (UNESCO world heritage site ),  the creation of this ‘new district’, offers a unique opportunity to  atract: new people, atract  youngsters to heritage / cultural  jobs;a tttract  investors and companies to our territory.

This initiative is led by the ACCM ( local public authority) and the POLE ICP is  in charge of the projects promotion, with the coordination of a  newtwok of ambassadors of the territory: We are also the contact point for those who want to invest, relocate and be a part of the this ‘new’ ambitious silicon valley for  cultural operators  and creative industries project.

We work in narrow cooperation with local and regional authorities – municipalities, Conseil Regional Region SUD-PACA but also with the French ministry of culture who supports and sponsors some of our initiatives.
