Both committed to the principle that a regional dynamic is built around operational projects, public and private, the Region and Caisse des Dépôts intend this strategic agreement to focus on three main issues:
- regional development and competitiveness;
- solidarity and social cohesion;
- energy and ecological transition.
The partnership sets out to provide operational responses: making it easier for innovative businesses to set up and grow, developing the tourist economy, meeting the requirements of the Regional Climate-Air-Energy Scheme, building more social homes, and supporting the implementation of university projects.
The Region and Caisse des Dépôts will therefore be pooling their initiatives and financing in order to:
- facilitate the start-up and growth of innovating firms;
- structure the social and solidarity economy (ESS) sector;
- develop digital infrastructure and services;
- use development planning and transport to boost the Region's competitiveness;
- develop the tourist economy;
- support the implementation of university projects;
- improve the attractiveness of work-linked training and provide more accommodation for apprentices;
- increase the support given to business start-ups;
- promote women's entrepreneurship;
- increase production of social and middle income housing;
- improve the living conditions of residents of priority districts;
- reduce the energy consumption of public buildings/facilities and of social and private housing;
- increase and diversify regional production of renewable energy;
- structure the wood energy sector.
