Extra&Co is a public scheme developed to support research, development and innovation projects in micro-enterprises, SMEs and middle-market companies in the extractive and primary processing sectors.
Extra&Co also aims to work in synergy and develop partnerships with the sector's "ecosystem": professional federations and unions, competitiveness and business clusters, technical centres for industry, etc.
As a "Carnot Value Chain" programme launched by the ANR and funded by the national Investing for the Future programme, Extra&Co is run by a group of 4 Carnot Institutes (ISIFoR, BRGM, ICÉEL and M.I.N.E.S) with recognised scientific expertise in subsoil mineral and energy resources.
A range of services organised around 35 technological platforms
One year after its operational launch, Extra&Co has published the catalogue of its technological platforms, presenting the scientific competences and technical means available to companies in the extractive and primary processing sector.
The first Extra&Co catalogue is an essential gateway to the group's range of integrated services, listing and describing its 35 technological platforms, including 6 at the BRGM:
- CARAMIN - Mineralogical and crystallographic characterisation
- CARAPHY - Mineral, physico-chemical and textural characterisation
- GEO-ISO - Isotopic dating and tracing
- INORGA - Inorganic chemistry analyses
- PLAT’INN - Processing of mineral raw materials, waste and industrial by-products

In parallel, Extra&Co is pursuing its commercial and partnership-based activities across France with a team of specialist advisers.
