Here is a summary of the most outstanding activities of our
Hub Occitanie in recent weeks:
METASTARS objective is to promote collaboration
between European clusters to support SMEs in the aerospace and defense
ecosystem (ASD) and increase companies’ resilience. The project will offer SMEs
financial support to develop innovative projects and to benefit from services
to adapt to new technologies, to develop or strengthen their green and digital
transition, their innovation potential, their internationalization strategy,
and the upskilling of their work force.
Based on the results of the EU survey “Innovation
Procurement of Climate Change services & National Legal Framework” two
sets of workshops will take place in March and October 2023.
These two sets of online workshops have been preceded by a general
plenary session regarding the challenges in each application domain during thehigh-level conference in Barcelona. During this session, moderated by CORVERS CEO (Stephan
Corvers), the discussions focussed on sustainableandurban communities, in particular on the importance
management, which is extremely expensive and usually consists
in burying waste, burning waste or transporting waste. Climate
services (CS) based on Earth observation (EO) could contribute to provide
solutions for these pressing issues which can potentially affect other domains
such as Marine
and coastal environment and Civil Security and Protection.

Following the presentation on 20
June of the cross-border projects “Early Warning Networks” and
“Environmental Monitoring for Civil Protection”, the aim of which was
to learn about and analyse the main applications offered by this satellite,
such as the study of the physical properties of clouds, atmospheric monitoring,
land monitoring, ocean monitoring, meteorological and biological changes, crop
monitoring and the monitoring of natural disasters. A working group has been
set up to work on the early detection of invasive species.
The group is made up of public
entities dedicated to the control of invasive species, research groups from the
University of Extremadura related to remote sensing, data analysis, technology
centres specialised in the agro-industrial sector, various regional
administrations, and private companies in the region of Extremadura.
With the support of
Fundecyt-PCTEX, in the framework of Horizon Europe funding, the following topic
has been identified: HORIZON-CL6-2024-BIODIV: Invasive alien species. The
objective is to be able to work on the development of a cooperative proposal
for the detection of invasive species in inland aquatic areas using Sentinel 1
The European Commission will
allocate EUR 6 million to adequately address the following expected results:
– The establishment of alien
species accidentally introduced into the EU environment, minimising and, where
possible, eliminating them.
– Establishment of early warning
systems to inform stakeholders of the introduction of invasive alien species.
– Effectively prevent the
introduction of invasive alien species and systematically manage those already
– Support and improve public
awareness, literacy and engagement on the monitoring and management of invasive
According to the European
Commission, the call for proposals is expected to open on 17/10/23 and close on
Companies and entities linked to
the Badajoz Hub of the Novexport project will be part of the proposal to be
submitted in 2024.

Within the framework of the Smart Agrifood Summit, on the afternoon
of the 29th, NOVExport Sudoe
organized a side event as the closing of the project: “STRATEGIES AND
EXPERIENCES IN INTERNATIONALIZATION IN LATAM COUNTRIES”.

The European project NOVExport
was designed to support the growth and increase the competitiveness of
small and medium-sized enterprises in western Europe. The project has also sought to accompany its
internationalization in the agricultural, environmental and maritime markets of
Latin America, through the technological innovation of its products and
services, using space technology, digital data and IoT (internet of things).
In the project, funded
by the Interreg Sudoe
Programme through the European Regional Development Fund
(ERDF), seven partners from France, Spain and Portugal have worked together.
Less than 30% of
European SMEs export their products and services and, for many of them,
access to a new market, especially outside Europe, “becomes a long and
complicated process”. This reality, together with the global expansion of
data markets whose information represents a great opportunity as a business
accelerator for SMEs, is at the origin of the NOVExport project that started in
November 2019 and ended last September 2022.
As RESULTS of the
project, which has been intended to support SMEs in southwestern Europe in
their internationalization thanks to the technological maturation of their
products and services, the following stand out:
Creation and launching of 6 local hubs (Occitanie, Coimbra, Badajoz, Bilbao, Madrid and Basque Coast). These are local networks of companies with a common interest in international markets. For its dynamization, more than 50 events with more than 500 attendees have been held with the participation of more than 150 SMEs. These hubs are the physical spaces in which all the activities of the NOVExport project have been developed. While each has its own mode of operation, adapted to local ecosystems and practices, they are all linked in the virtual resource platform (VRC), with a common database for the project accessible to all. In addition, these centers are spaces for exchange with local ecosystems: groups of partners, incubators, etc .
a Virtual Resource Platform (https://crv.novexport-sudoe.eu/). This virtual resource center
(VRC) is an open web platform that centralizes all information, events,
courses, market research, technological data and any information that may be of
interest to SMEs in any area of their activity or sector. Constantly updated it
currently has more than fifty registered companies and more than 500 resources
(news of interest, commercial reports, country sheets, trainings …) .
for identifying and maturing innovative products and services has been
created. Accessible in the VRC, this
methodology is aimed at innovative SMEs that seek the technological maturation
of their products and services thanks to the use of space and digital data, to
support their internationalization. More than 40 SMEs have participated in the
process. The created methodology helps, among other things: designing or
updating new products or services; applying rapid prototyping strategies to
refine and improve new products and services; or analysing the feasibility of a
new product or innovation, as well as possible challenges.
Creation of a methodology for international development of SMEs through coaching, technical training and B2B sessions. 3 target countries have been selected: Mexico, Brazil and Chile and more than 20 SMEs have been lent to support. Access to the methodology is also done through the VRC and its objective is to prepare SMEs to successfully face a B2B meeting with agents, organizations, administrations etc. of international markets that may be future customers.
