Kick-off Meeting: VIRGO - Virtual registry of ground infrastructures
Infratel Italia Spa, coordinator of the EC/CIP project VIRGO, hosted the kick-off meeting January 30-31, 2014, in Rome, Italy.
VIRGO is a European project funded within the “Competiveness and innovation framework programme 2007-2013 (CIP)” and started January 1, 2014. The consortium involves 12 partners from Italy, Romania, Portugal, Austria and Luxembourg. It intends to realise a cloud virtual registry of existing infrastructures in several European countries with standardized system to store and manage data in a unique manner.
In the coming 36 month, Z_GIS will be involved in developing procedures for map preparation and the regulatory provisions to create the registry on cloud and implementing and delivering related services.
VIRGO will optimise the virtual registry with the results of three pilot initiatives in Italy, Portugal and Rumania and will disseminate the system and the related results throughout Europe.
