Collective activities


The collective action "Organisation of the electronics industry in Upper Normandy" took place in two stages, between 2004 and 2009. It involved the Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Rouen and Eure, IRSEEM, Seine-Maritime Expansion and ESIGELEC.

The first phase (2004-2006) consisted in visiting companies to make individual diagnostics. The partners met with over 90 companies, enabling them to define a strategy and set up several actions fulfilling the needs and expectations identified. Three projects were developed : the electronic cluster called "GEEM" (onboard electronics cluster), the European project AUTONET and the "Electronic Village" within the RITH.

Between 2007 and 2009, the second phase of the collective action made it possible to structure the network by redefining more precisely the companies' need. The major areas of work were communication and technology. Two business clusters were born : ALEHANE, still growing, and TICTEL, which ended in 2009 after two years of activity.

“Onboard Electronics Cluster”

The GEEM (onboard electronics cluster), established in January 2005, is a result of the collective action “Organisation and reinforcement of the electronics sector in Upper Normandy”. The aim of this cluster is to create a network of companies in the electronics sector, based around the completion of mutualised research and development projects, with the methodological support of THALES AIR SYSTEMS. GEEM’s member companies in 2009: AD QUALITE, AIE ETUDES, CERA ELECTRONIQUE, ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT, GONOGO, JEULIN, OVERSPEED, SERICAD, SYNCHRONIC for SMEs and THALES AIR SYSTEMS. IRSEEM provided its technical and scientific support through EMC simulations based on case studies.


The ELECTRE project aims to help companies from the regional Electricity-Electronics industry with fundamental aspects of their human resource management, particularly by meeting the requirements brought in by new technologies in terms of skills. IRSEEM took part in the first phase of this action – “Prospective study” – by carrying out technical assessments from thorough interviews with company managers. These assessments helped to formalise recommendations and a report, leading to an action plan.
