New EU proposal submitted by the Teleparc centre Convertir en PDF Version imprimable Suggérer par mail
p>logo Energic ODThe Teleparc centre of the Gers Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI) submitted on the 14th of May the ENERGIC OD (European Network for Redistributing Geographic Information to user Communities – Open Data) project in the frame of the 7th call for proposals of the ICT PSP (Information and Communication Technologies Policy Support Programme) launched by the European Commission. This project tackles issues related to public Open Data, as specified in the objective 2.2 of this call.

The ENERGIC OD project, coordinated by the Gers CCI, aims to develop and generalize the use of Open Data in Europe, in particular in the field of geographic information. Hence, the project proposes to set up virtual hubs to enable collecting, analysing, sharing and reusing geographic information by all types of users, including non-specialists. A virtual hub will be implemented in each partner country (France, Italy, Spain, Germany and Poland) and a central European virtual hub will ensure smooth interactions between all national hubs.

The use of the brokering architecture to conceive and implement these hubs will ensure the interoperability of all the systems while avoiding the constraints of scripts and systems harmonisation procedures.

Once these hubs implemented and fed with open data, they will be used for the development of eleven applications enabling users to exploit the collected information in various domains. Hence, the Gers CCI will develop an application in the field of geotraceability to allow consumers to retrace the geographical origin of the PGI (Protected Geographic Information) labelled products.

The ENERGIC OD project gathers 18 partners from five EU countries, representing the public sector with the involvement of territorial and economic development institutions, public research institutes or universities, as well as the private one, with the involvement of several private companies.

THE GERS CCI LEADER OF A NEW EUROPEAN PROJECT : the good practices that contribute to the policies for the economic development of rural areas
GRISI PLUS (Geomatics Rural Information Society Initiative PLUS)is the name of a new project selected by the European Commission in the frame of the 4th call of the INTERREG IVC programme. It gathers 13 partners from 11 Member States and the Gers Chamber of Commerce and Industry, as lead partner. Since 2001, GRISI PLUS is the 9th European project prepared and coordinated by the Teleparc centre of the Gers CCI.
The international launching conference of the project will take place on Thursday 9th of February 2012 from 9 a.m to 5 p.m at the CCI of the Midi Pyrenees region (5, rue Dieudonné Costes – Blagnac/ Toulouse, FRANCE). This conference will focus on “Geomatics, the keystone to develop the attractiveness of European rural territories. Persons representing the European Commission, the French governmental agency for Land Management and Territorial Attractiveness, the French Rural Network, the National Geographic Institute, and the 14 project partners will debate on the strategic stakes for the development of rural territories up to 2020. You will find the detailed programme of the event in the attachment.
We would be grateful if you could confirm your participation online : before Tuesday 31st of January.

The final conference of the EU-funded GeoFairTrade project Convertir en PDF Version imprimable Suggérer par mail


The 4th Fair Trade International Symposium will be held at Liverpool Hope Business School on 2nd-4th April 2012. For this 4th edition, the symposium gathering academics and practitioners will host the final conference of the EU-funded "GeoFairTrade" project.

Since 2001, CCI Gers has chosen geotraceability as the unifying theme for all research projects presented successively to the 5th, 6th and 7th Framework Programme. The European project GeoFairTrade (GFT) [ ] is an good example of the development of geo-traceability.

The CCI Gers is the coordinator of the EU-funded "GeoFairTrade" project about fair trade, which has started on April 1st 2009 and will terminate on September 2012.The project aims to combine Fair Trade Indicators related to socio-economic and environmental issues to traceability to inform consumers about the work of women and men in the production process, how much reaches the producers, or measures to protect the environment set up by the Fair Trade producers in the world.

GeoFairTrade will require the cooperation of Research and Technology Developers (RTD) and Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) to develop new social, economic and environmental indicators based on geographic data. This will lead to Transparency and Traceability to the whole product chain from the producers to the consumers, through an internet tool, which will be presented during the FTIS.

Finally, the Symposium will bring together researchers, Fair Trade practitioners, and all those who are interested in, and who wish to share their opinion and experience about Fair Trade. The objectives of the symposium are to present the most recent studies associated with Fair Trade, to share information about on-going and coming research projects, and to confront important questions about the future of the movement.

New cooperation proposal submited by the Teleparc Centre Convertir en PDF Version imprimable Suggérer par mail

logo-grisi-plus.jpgThe Teleparc centre of the Gers CCI submitted on the 31st of March 2011 the GRISI PLUS (Geomatic Rural Information Society Initiative PLUS) proposal in the framework of the 4rth call for proposals of the INTERREG IVC programme (European Territorial Cooperation). The project corresponds to the priority topic of INTERREG IVC programme « Innovation and Knowledge Economy – The Information Society ».
The GRISI PLUS objective is to improve economic development policies in rural areas by increasing the use of geographical information and geomatics tools in order to face the major stakes of rural territories. GRISI PLUS wants to introduce a new “modernity” in European rural territories mainly based on the development and implementation of geomatics tools within the GRISI project (Interreg IIIC) as well as on welcoming practices of new inhabitants within the SOHO SOLO project (Interreg IIIB).

GRISI PLUS aims at giving to the political decision-makers effective tools of decision-making support.
 To achieve this goal, partners will exchange experience, identify and transfer good practices in 2 domains related to their common issues for the revitalization of rural territories:

  • Development of the attractiveness of rural territories to attract new inhabitants. The latter will be able to telework (work at distance) thanks to the New ICT. These new inhabitants bring new skills and wealth, are concerned by the environmental protection and they contribute in maintaining proximity services. They thus contribute in reinforcing territorial cohesion, developing employment and increasing competitiveness in EU
  • Promotion of local tangible and intangible products 

GRISI PLUS gathers 14 partners from 11MS of the North, South, East and West areas, thus covering widely the EU territory. The partnership includes Regions, Provinces, Associations of municipalities and territorial development agencies to consider different territorial levels and their competences. 

The principal action is the identification and transfer of good practices to improve 13 economic development policies of rural areas. Its success relies on 2 essential elements: effective project coordination and a communication strategy to disseminate the results to policymakers, citizens, and to 42 other relevant institutions, thus raising awareness to key players on the themes tackled.
More information on the GRISI PLUS proposal is available on the project sheet.

The Teleparc geomatics centre submits a new EU research project Convertir en PDF Version imprimable Suggérer par mail

logo_etucom_diminu.jpgThe Teleparc geomatics centre of the Gers Chamber of Commerce and Industry submitted on the 25th of January 2011 the European research project « ETUCOM » : Elementary Territorial Units for crop specific COexistence Management in the field of coexistence between GMO and non-GMO crops. This project is submitted in the frame of the call for proposals FP7-KBBE-2011-5 « Feasible and cost-effective crop-specific coexistence measures» of the 7th Framework Programme. The ETUCOM project aims at making easier the implementation of existing coexistence measures by developing the « territorialisation » concept.

Indeed, the implementation of cost-effective and efficient coexistence measures requires a local approach taking in account the specificities of territories and local stakeholders. The ETUCOM project will provide a solution enabling “territorialisation” of good coexistence practices of previous research projects. Through a local-based Information Service for all potential users and a Communication Program targeting all concerned key-players, the ETUCOM will facilitate the implementation of existing coexistence tools and guidelines, which:

  • are efficient and cost-effective,
  • guarantee the freedom of choice of farmers,
  • allow local authorities to develop their future socio-economic strategies,
  • allow stakeholders to get transparent information,
  • will be exploited by SMEs to enlarge their market.

The project gathers 20 partners (from 11 Member States, Turkey and Brazil): 12 academic and research institutions, 6 SMEs, and 2 stakeholders covering in an optimal way the different EU farming systems. An Advisory Group of 20 members will provide useful advice, evaluations and recommendations.

This ambitious proposal with a budget of more than 4 millions (with a European funding of 3 millions) will be carried out in 3 years. The results of the evaluation will be announced in April 2011.

More information regarding the project is available on the ETUCOM descriptive form .
