Hippolia is the only government-certified competitive cluster in the horse industry. It comprises a Board of Directors which represents the industry, an independent Committee of Quality Certification Experts and an energetic operational team, all bound by confidentiality.
The cluster has its headquarters in Normandy, and is composed of a network of more than 200 members throughout France: entrepreneurs, start-ups, VSBs, SMEs and major groups, and also research teams, training providers and institutions.
The Hippolia Cluster has an ambitious goal: “To position the French horse industry at the forefront of innovation with its beating heart in Normandy.”
