Technopoles were born from the local wills to stimulate the economic development of territories through innovation. For more than fifteen years, the technopoles have maintained partnerships between Industry and Trade Chambers (CCI) and universities.

In the mean time, the European Centers of Companies and Innovation (CEEI) developed, on the initiative of the direction of the regional policies of the European Union (DG XVI). Since nearly fifteen years, the CEEI play a major part of support to the creation of innovating companies.

These two developed in two distinct but increasingly overlapping networks. With the passing of years, the experience sharing between these two networks was structured around three trades:

- animation and the setting in network of competences
- engineering of innovating projects
- reception of companies and marketing of the territory.

It was thus natural to marry innovation and pragmatism, effectiveness and visibility: January 19, 2000, the fusion of the two networks gave rise to France Technopoles Entreprises Innovation.
