What is the Industrial Hive?

The Industrial Hive is a collective and a resource space located at the heart of the industry 4.0 site of Lyon (USIN).

The Industrial Hive is a non-profit association under the 1901 law, created by 7 manufacturers from various sectors of different sizes, alongside a university. The Hive’s mission is to enable local manufacturers to help each other find answers to current challenges and to develop their performance. How? By working together on specific projects.

The 5 Values of The Hive

The Industrial Hive’s participants understand how to embody the values that are important to them:

Friendliness – the fundamental part of any lasting human relationship.

Collaboration – several people together are better than one alone!

Pragmatism – in order to learn, focussing on action rather than analysis and seeing it as a source of transformation.

Audacity – daring to explore and set up new partnerships!

Sustainable approach – environmental, social and human impact.  Using this filter to increase the positive impact of actions taken.


At the Industrial Hive, as its name suggests, we love nature and life. 

The current thinking on building design,  waste management and sourcing of service providers is firmly oriented towards the  “cleanest” solutions possible.


The Hive’s origins

The concept of the Industrial Hive was devised by 3 intrapreneurs from the Bosch Rexroth and Renault Trucks/Volvo groups.

Having personally led and successfully carried out intraprenarial projects in their companies, they’ve laid the foundations for an inter-company structure that creates permeability between worlds and enables the implementation of the famous “collective intelligence”.
