The Rhône-Alpes Region

Symbolic of the dynamism to be found within the European Union, the Rhône-Alpes is an attractive French region with many geographic, climatic, cultural and economic advantages.

The Rhône-Alpes Region is situated at the natural crossroads of the major communication routes of France and Europe. Thanks to its location, the region boasts a wealth of powerful assets: its strategic position at the crossroads of Europe, its proximity to large markets and its clusters of knowledge and expertise, as well as its remarkable living environment and young, active and growing population. 


Endowed with a great potential in research and innovation and dynamic economic activities, the Rhône-Alpes Region is a co-founder of the "Four Motors for Europe", a working group that also includes the regions of Baden-Württemberg, Catalonia and Lombardy and is active in the university, scientific, economic, athletic and cultural domains.
