IGE+XAO receives funding from ERDF (European Regional Development Fund) in order to develop a collaborative web platform for the Building industry.
The Fund aims to promote economic and social cohesion by correcting the main regional imbalances and participating in the development and conversion of regions, while ensuring synergy with assistance from the other Structural Funds.
As part of its task to promote regional development, the ERDF contributes towards financing the following measures:
- productive investment to create and safeguard sustainable jobs;
- investment in infrastructure which contributes to development, structural adjustment and creation and maintenance of sustainable jobs, or, in all eligible regions, to diversification, revitalisation, improved access and regeneration of economic sites and industrial areas suffering from decline, depressed urban areas, rural areas and areas dependent on fisheries. Such investment may also target the development of trans-European networks in the areas of transport, telecommunications and energy;
- development of the endogenous potential by measures which support local development and employment initiatives and the activities of small and medium-sized enterprises; such assistance is aimed at services for enterprises, transfer of technology, development of financing instruments, direct aid to investment, provision of local infrastructure, and aid for structures providing neighbourhood services;
- investment in education and health.
The IGE+XAO Group, in collaboration with partners FORMI-SA, NOVADYS and E-Need, launches an innovative development project in the Building Industry. This project (named WEB BLM) targets “lifecycle management” in the Building market (BLM – Building Lifecycle Management). Its objective is to put in place a common collaborative Web platform dedicated to that Industry.
IGE+XAO will develop design tools (CAD – Computer-Aided Design) specific to building electrical systems management (installation and calculation).
The project cost for IGE+XAO is estimated at 120,000 EUR excl. taxes. ERDF provides 40% of this amount as funding, which are 48,280 EUR excl. taxes.
