Economic environment


Located in the heart of a labour pool of 730,000 inhabitants and 40,000 students, the Rouen Normandy metropolitan area includes all the urban functions of a regional capital.

As a result, highly efficient and innovative industries have developed in Rouen, in turn spurring the development of service activities and raising the level of training of its employees.

The industrial fabric in and around Rouen provides innovative companies with an exceptional range of possibilities for business relations and opportunities for cooperation.

The added-value services sector – decision support, research, consulting, engineering, legal and marketing – is also developing due to the presence of large companies.
