Testing and Measurement expertise

The Val d’Oise department supports business innovation and R&D, a priority focus of its economic development. It has encouraged the partnership with the Cosmetic Valley since 2009 in order to support its cosmetics sector. This Competitiveness Cluster brings together 300 member companies. Val d’Oise thus capitalises on its expertise in testing and measurement for cosmetic products, a field that represents a major challenge for the cosmetics sector and for its company base.
