The AVENIA cluster plays a key role in coordinating the underground community. The various events organized by the cluster, programs, webinars, etc., contribute to the dynamics of the industry and enable IFPEN, an R&D center committed to new underground uses and an active member of the cluster for many years, to promote its R&D, meet its partners and create new contacts.
