Aratos Technologies S.A. is taking part on the Kick Off Meeting of the EC-founded FP7 – SAFECITY project. SAFECITY studies the specific requirements for Information & Communications Technology applications for Public Safety to be integrated upon the generic requirements of the Future Internet. The project was formally initiated on April 1rst and its expected duration is 24 months. The Kick-off meeting (3rd-4th May) is being held in Madrid, in the headquarters of ISDEFE, the project coordinator. ISDEFE (http://www.isdefe.es/eng/index.php) is a state owned company founded in September 1985, through an agreement by the Council of Ministers, with the objective of providing technical engineering support and consulting services for advanced technologies in the Defense and Civil sectors.
Aratos Technologies S.A. is one of the fifteen (15) participants working on the project, assessing the current limitations and technical changes being met in Public Safety ICT, the consolidation of those with the Core Platform of the Future Internet (including the other case scenarios), the development of Proof of Concept development for the SAFECITY project in two European cities (Madrid and Stockholm), and exploring the social, legal and ethical implications raised during research.

The FP7 Environment project “GEO Capacity Building Initiative in Central Asia” (SEOCA) organizes the project Federated Conference comprising the following events:
- International seminar of Central Asian Universities and other educational stakeholders: “New scientific and educational technologies in the field of Earth Observation”. The seminar will bring together University representatives from all 5 countries of Central Asia and their colleagues from the EU in order to discuss the modern curricular relevant to the topic. Also, the seminar will include the roundtable discussions “Modern technologies of EO information processing” and “Environment monitoring by using small satellites”. The project partners from Germany, Greece and Turkey will present the European curricula and technologies.
- Demonstration workshop “GEONETcast technologies for environment monitoring”. The representatives of Central Asian organizations interested in application of GEONETCast low-cost terminals for educational needs as well as for real-life applications in environment and natural disasters monitoring will be acquainted with the GEONETCast system capacities
- Training workshop “GEO: Global efforts and regional impact” aimed to provide training to National GEO offices in all 5 countries of Central Asia. As a result it is expected that the regional contribution to GEO, as well as engagement of regional stakeholders with GEO activities will be significantly strengthen.
The dates of the event: April 2011
