The long-term socio-economic development of the region Centre-Val de Loire, in a period of economic fragility, depends on the growth of quality research, development and innovation. ARD 2020 Programmes, the region Centre-Val de Loire initiative to implement the EU Smart Specialisation Strategy, have been designed to generate strong socio-economic impacts by providing support to create strong regional research and development centres of international scale, stimulate innovation and job creation and, socio-economic dynamism in the territory of the region. Thus, the region has supported the strengthening of quality research in a number of domains to foster the development of world-class poles to enhance research and innovation activity in the region: ARD 2020 biopharmaceuticals, ARD 2020 LAVOISIER, ARD 2020 Cosmetosciences.
