The President of the Beauvaisis Community of Agglomeration, Caroline Cayeux, has sought to initiate a new territorial dynamic that aims, among other things, to reconcile economy and ecology. She has thus entrusted Loïc Barbaras, Vice-President in charge of Economic Development, and Aymeric Bourleau, Vice-President in charge of Higher Education and Innovation, with the mission of building the economic strategy of Beauvaisis for the next ten years.
“Beauvaisis 2030: Economic Ambition” is structured around 5 objectives:
Objective 1 – Develop new future-oriented sectors that will contribute to our food, energy, and sustainable component sovereignties, in coherence with the specific resources of our agricultural territory (focused on agricultural biomass, bio-sourced materials, and reuse).
This strategic positioning is centered on productive sectors
- AgTech for resilient agriculture: Farm machinery / Agricultural technology
- The Neo-Industry M3: Metals / Mechanics / Machinery
- Sovereignty Sectors: Biomass / Value-Added Reuse
Objective 2 – Develop the industries of the future and contribute to the reindustrialization of France
Digitalization, robotics, decarbonization, employer branding, attractiveness of industrial professions, and the mutualization and collective valorization of waste for sustainable Industry 4.0.
Objective 3 – Consolidate the AgTech ecosystem structured around the territorial cluster Beauvais Rev’Agro.
- Rev’Agro aims to participate in the implementation of agriculture of the future thanks to the ecosystem in place and under development (digital agriculture, artificial intelligence, cobotics and precision agriculture, bioenergy, agroecology, and new crops for climate change, biosourced materials…).
- Supporting the development of our centers of excellence (UniLaSalle, Massey Ferguson Global Headquarters…) and new training programs related to tomorrow’s challenges.
Objective 4 – Promote an inclusive and circular economy in both urban and rural areas
The High & Low Tech InCas campus: a place dedicated to high and low-tech sectors, including coworking and coliving spaces, local food offerings, leisure spaces and services, recreational and sports facilities, training in new transition-related jobs, and workshops dedicated to the circular and solidarity economy, etc.
Objective 5 – Establish new balances for physical commerce in city centers / town centers as well as in the outskirts.
- Implementation of development actions / facilitating tools and regulation of types of establishments
- Qualification and supervision of the peripheral offer: Trade-leisure-restoration
- Revitalization of the city center of Beauvais (Action Heart of the City Plan)
This ambitious economic strategy aims to promote development and attractiveness by leveraging the territorial specificities of Beauvaisis.
