2/ The implementation of the watch in itself by the use of tools of type Google Alerts, RSS feeds and others typifies of recoverable information about WEB

Major elements of the policy of industrial competitiveness of France, the Poles of Competitiveness are not forcing very “readable”.
Nevertheless 71 poles, distributed throughout France according to their skills, have still allowed the financing of 1250 projects of R&D in 2008 for a global 940 million euros amount!
Let’s see what are these clusters.
The poles, based on existing skills and on Regional territories are established by companies (small, average and big), research laboratory and centre of teachings working in network to allow:
C.I.R, JEI, Competitiveness Clusters, PRIDES, FUI, DGCIS, OSEO, ANR, PCRD, EUREKA, Eurostars, PRCE, CIP, Business Angels, VC, etc. etc….
