Rennes Atalante Science and technology parkRennes Atalante Science and technology park

The Rennes Atalante Association was set up in 1984 by Greater Rennes Council (Rennes Métropole) at the same time as the Science & Technology Park. Seen as a means to economic development through innovation and technologies, its aim is to stimulate the expansion and location of technology companies in the Ille et Vilaine area and to encourage the start-up of new activities with high added value. 
Rennes Atalante represents a system in which researchers, teaching staff, industrialists, company founders, salaried workers, local councillors and financiers network within a veritable community. It acts as a federating body for more than 280 members drawn from the worlds of business, research and higher education.
There are five locations for technology companies within the Rennes Atalante Science and Technology park: Beaulieu, Champeaux, Ker Lann, Saint-Malo and Villejean.
