The innovation clubs

The innovation clubs are attended by 20 or so participants, industrialists and researchers, for brainstorming sessions on specific subjects to encourage the emergence of tangible innovation projects, preferably collaborative.

Avénia

This club was created in 2013. Here are some examples of the subjects addressed: Feasibility, screening of EOR techniques, reservoir simulation, etc.: planning an EOR pilot. Nanotechnologies and nanomaterials applied to EOR Microbial EOR



Contact: Nicolas GONTHIER

Avénia

This club was created in 2018. Here are some examples of the subjects addressed: Development and integration of new and existing surface, airborne, and satellite techniques for profitable geothermal exploration. Use of passive seismic and non-seismic noise for subsurface tomography. Static correction for seismic reflection.

Contact: Nicolas GONTHIER

Avénia

This club was founded in late 2016 and is organized in partnership with the ISIFoR Carnot institute (website link: www.carnot-isifor.eu). Its objective is to work on environmental issues related to subsurface exploitation. It addresses the problems encountered by operators on the following subjects: water, gas, polluted sites and soil, biodiversity.

Contact: Evelyne ROBERT

Pôle Avénia

Open Innovation

Open Innovation in the subsurface sectors represents a fundamental change in R&D processes. The main ordering institutions are no longer simply looking for techniques and technologies to help them expand. They now expect a cultural contribution from their partners, and Open Innovation makes it possible to share innovation culture, which encompasses innovations in use as well as technological innovation.

Pôle Avénia

The Geodays

We take part in organizing these exchanges with our OPEN INNOVATION service as part of our annual event, the GEODAYS. A unique occasion for the major corporations of the subsurface sector to meet the most innovative start-ups and businesses eager to provide them with new insights. In 2019, TOTAL, TEREGA, VALLOUREC, SCHLUMBERGER, STORENGY and ERAMET attended the event and received 49 projects. 30-minute appointments were held during the GEODAYS with a technical expert and innovation manager.

Pôle Avénia

Sourcing

We also support our partners’ events. We offer sourcing services in order to identify and attract the most innovative companies:

  • Identification
  • Qualification of the innovation
  • Possibilities of deployment in our industries

We develop our ecosystem such as to include structures from a wide variety of domains by taking part in events such as the CES, VIVATECH, VIV INDUSTRY and so on.

Collaborative innovation

Innovation is the main ambition of competitiveness hubs. In the case of AVENIA, this mission applies to subsurface industries. We bring together industrial players, from the biggest to the smallest, local authorities, support structures, and R&D and training players. As a trusted third party, we facilitate contacts and certify projects to validate their pertinence. We then promote our members’ actions.

Innovation exists at all levels of maturity:

  • Innovation culture

  • Incubation

  • Acceleration

  • Growth

Start-up

The support offered by AVENIA is particularly suited to companies of 0 to 3 years old seeking to expand. It is an ideal springboard for your innovation and will enable you to rapidly fine-tune your value proposal and kick off Proofs Of Concept, particularly owing to:

Avénia
  • Direct access to the ecosystem of the Pôle
  • Geostart by Helioparc, a unique incubator in France for the subsurface industries
  • Contracts passed on directly to key accounts: contracts signed on average three months sooner than with the standard process
  • Regular mentoring with our entire team to test your offer
  • Pitching of your innovation to the other members
  • Participation in our OPEN INNOVATION event during the GEODAYS
  • Participation in selected B2B meetings out of the 1,500 held during the GEODAYS
  • Certification of your innovative product/service to enhance its visibility
  • Certification of your R&DI project in view of public funding

AVENIA gives you the opportunity to extend your innovative activities at European level, to exchange and foster partnerships with international clusters and to make your projects more visible to European institutions.

Pôle Avénia

Find your European funding

Access to European funding is a major opportunity for all entities seeking to put together an innovative project. The European Union offers many funding tools devoted to innovation and SMEs such as Horizon 2020 (Horizon Europe), Eurostars, LIFE, EIC Accelerator (former SME instrument), Erasmus +, etc. The European and international team of AVENIA helps you to identify funding programs suited to your projects and needs:

  • Regular watch and advertising of new calls for projects.
  • Advice and information concerning the selection criteria for each call for projects listed.
  • Support and advice for preparing your funding application.
  • Our regional and European contacts and networks are on hand to answer any of your questions on European programs.
  • Project monitoring assistance

Expand your network

You will benefit from AVENIA’s involvement in international networks and clusters to streamline cooperation between the players in your particular field. Thanks to our services, creating an international network is an easy task:

Initial contact with the different clusters that AVENIA belongs to in France, in Europe and worldwide (France Energie Team, GEOENERGIE Europe, etc.).

Networking with the players of European institutions.

Communication of networking events taking place among European institutions and international clusters

*A representative of AVENIA is sent to attend the international events that interest our members in order to take notes, make contacts and represent our organization.

Research concerning the projects and partners likely to interest our members (associate member, B2B, etc.)

Organization of networking events by AVENIA (GEODAYS, B2B).

AVENIA in European projects

AVENIA is an active member of several European projects related to the subsurface industries. Here is a list of the current projects:

Pôle Avénia

Geoenergy Europe

The aim of the GEOENERGY EUROPE project is to internationalize the offers of SMEs belonging to the European metacluster, enabling them to share their know-how, their technologies and experience in terms of geo-energy, the initial focus being the topic of deep geothermal energy.
The first phase of the project (January 2018 - December 2019) was coordinated by PA with a budget of €200 k, 75% funded by COSME. The seond phase of the project started on September 1, 2020 with a budget of €450 k, 90% funded by COSME.

Pôle Avénia

PIXIL

The European project PIXIL is a cross-border and multidisciplinary collaborative project focused on scientific and technological subjects. The objective is to make the transpyrenean region a reference in subsurface characterization technologies, and more particularly to promote geothermal energy in the region.

“The project was 65% co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of the Interreg VA Spain-France-Andorra (POCTEFA 2014-2020) program. The objective of POCTEFA is to step up the economic and social integration of the border area between Spain, France and Andorra. The aid provided is intended for the development of cross-border economic, social and environmental activities based on common strategies in favor of sustainable regional development.”

Pôle Avénia

PilotSTRATEGY

Pilotes pour le stockage géologique de CO2 dans des régions stratégiques

Le projet s’inscrit dans la politique de recherche et innovation menée par la Commission Européenne sur la technologie de Captage, Stockage et Valorisation du CO2 pour une transition énergétique propre et durable, afin de contribuer à atteindre les objectifs de l’Accord de Paris sur le climat. PilotSTRATEGY a débuté le 1er mai 2021, pour une durée de 5 ans. Le budget total est de 10 millions d’euros.
Il fait suite au projet H2020 STRATEGY CCUS et proposera la construction de pilotes de stockage de CO2 dans les trois régions du sud de l'Europe : le Bassin de Paris (France), le Bassin lusitanien (Portugal) et le Bassin de l'Ebre (Espagne).

Projet européen financé par H2020 (N°101022664), EUROPEAN COMMISSION Innovation and Networks Executive Agency

Our members’ experience

Many of AVENIA’s members have taken part in European projects and we think that they can offer valuable advice to any other members who would like to give European projects a try. Here is a series of interviews (videos or questionnaires) in which they tell us about their experience, and which we hope will give you a better idea of what European projects entail:
