Roadmap 2022

Aderly: a strategic resource in the region’s transformation

The Agency’s roadmap is focusing efforts on projects with positive impacts (social, environmental, industrial, cooperation and regional impacts) while continuing to boost economic impact. The Agency’s objectives include a series of performance indicators, including a target of 40% projects with one or more impacts, 10 SE projects and 15% projects set up outside the Lyon metropolitan area, in line with the aim of developing areas outside the city.

To achieve this, the Agency’s prospecting plan has been built on 11 strategic areas for action in four key sectors:

  • One health, including food and social services of general interest
  • Eco-friendly transport, including urban logistics
  • The ecological transition, including sustainable construction, energy, the environment and reducing consumption of digital technology
  • Industrial renewal, including heavy industry and textiles

In addition, Aderly has also included in its objectives the contribution to the development of integration and return-to-work tools, such as the MMIE (Maison Métropolitaine d’Insertion pour l’emploi) with which it has built a joint action program.
