NextMove is a Gold Label cluster organization dedicated to Automotive and Mobility industry since March 2006. NextMove drives innovation in this industry and fosters the funding of R&I projects and collaborative business between its +600 members, contributing to the development of companies in Normandy and the Greater Paris area, where 70% of France’s automotive R&D is performed, and the reinforcement of international competitiveness of French businesses on the continent and overseas. Their objective: Build the “Mobility Valley”, a European and International reference of innovative and responsible mobility for the future.

The REMOBILISE project will provide clusters-missions to facilitate networking and peer-to-peer learning among European clusters, as well as business interaction between cluster members including those keen on approaching new markets.
