In the Tulle employment area, aIn order to encourage an economic dynamic and to meet the expectations of economic players as closely as possible, innovative local solutions have been planned: housing solutions, third-party premises, intergenerational training and living facilities, studies (on the potential for an employers’ group, for example), actions to network and promote trades or sectors, and other actions are being developed on the basis of the Territorial Jobs and Skills Forward Planning (GPECT) approach. Consultation and experimentation are at the heart of the methodology deployed.

Our support

The ANCT financed a €166,000 study as part of the agency’s engineering contract, 100% of which was paid for as part of the Territoires d’Industrie programme’s rebound package. As part of the France 2030 plan, the Industrial Rebound scheme launched on 1 August 2022 aims to support around forty industrial territories facing changes in the transport sector, particularly in the automotive sector, between now and 2026.
