Techn'hom is a natural talent pool for inter-company collaboration and research as a result of Belfort Technical University's (UTBM) strong backing of the transport and energy sector, the presence of the National Centre for Technology Research (CNRT), focusing on land vehicle fuel cells, both of which are spearheading the "vehicle of the future" technology cluster and France Telecom's research centre. Techn'hom therefore provides a sound environment for inter-company growth and research and guarantees the expansion of highly qualified jobs.
Local continual training facilities are available (UTBM, IUT, technical college, AFPA and CNAM), enabling businesses to meet the need for staff training.
