ARCSIS, Pôle SCS (the Secured Communicating Solutions cluster), Hautes-Alpes Développement, the Hautes-Alpes General Council and the city of Gap jointly invite you to attend the 9th edition of the OCOVA forum "Smart Communicating Territories" on 12 -13 September, 2012.
Further to the discussions and debates that took place at OCOVA 2011, the City of Gap and the SCS cluster, the Torino Wireless Piemonte cluster and the SIIT Liguria cluster have engaged in a trans-border Alcotra project to develop a common approach on smart communicating territories. OCOVA 2012 will represent a perfect opportunity to present in details the objectives of this project and the perspectives it opens.
More and more promoters of innovation are willing to participate to OCOVA, including clusters involved in sustainable development, risk detection and management or eco-businesses, such as Ea-Ecoentreprises, Pôle Risque, Capénergies in Provence Alpes Côte d?Azur. The 2012 OCOVA "Smart Communicating Territories" forum will house 2 workshops on environmental issues: "Smart solutions for risk detection, alert & management", and "Smart solutions for water, waste and biodiversity monitoring & management", and 2 workshops on services to the communities and to the people: "Mobile tourism, services and commerce", and "e-health and other services to the person".
For the first time, on 13 September morning, the OCOVA forum will organize a business convention with startups, SMEs, industries, and laboratories delivering presentations and demonstrations of their solutions, as a prelude to one-to-one meetings with collectivities, big accounts, potential partners, etc. By offering a full 4-hour time business-oriented sequence to our most innovative SMEs and labs from PACA, Rhône-Alpes, Piemonte, Liguria, we expect to bring business development opportunities in our field to unprecedented levels.
The afternoon of 13 September will open up to the general public and population, including students eager to discover exciting new sectors of employment and career opportunities, as well as people and collectivities wishing to know more about these smart communicating solutions that are reshaping our future.
As usual, we will be proud to welcome you again in Gap and make everything possible to help you get the highest value from your participation.
