To facilitate collaborative innovation, the GIE ALBATROS in involved in several networks where potential technical partners are met. It is notably an adherent of Neopolia, and of two competitiveness clusters: ID4Car (Ground transportation industry) and PMBA (Maritime and shipbuilding industries). The GIE ALBATROS is the host of the technical forum of the SAMPE France for 2022.
The companies which are members of the GIE ALBATROS are itselves involved in 35 different network such as syndicates and competitiveness clusters. The companies are actively collaborating with many research and technology organisations, academic labs and institutions of higher education.
