12 years of meetings, progress and innovative projects

Born in Auvergne, internationally open

Strong by a historic partnership dating back to 1965, the Limagrain Group and Inra decided to expand their collaborations by responding to the call for competitiveness clusters.

Since its launch in 2005, the Céréales Vallée competitiveness Cluster has been a continuation of long-standing and dynamic relationships that have brought together in Auvergne a set of recognized skills in innovation in cereals. It is based on the State and a group of territorial authorities, including the Regional Council of Auvergne.
