University of the West of England (UWE)


The Centre for Environment and Planning (CEP) at UWE has considerable experience of participation in EU funded multi-disciplinary and pan European projects in the areas of both information technology and sustainable urban development as it impacts on urban and regional policy planning.

(Current and recent projects in the context of GMES include work for the European Space Agency in the GMES Programme, including GUS and GSELand, developing and delivering to public policy makers, policy-relevant operational information services on issues of environment and security, primarily derived from Earth Observation data; the EU IntelCity Roadmap (DG Research 5FP), and the IntelCities Integrated Project (DG Research 6FP) defining the basis for integration of GMES and ICT with urban and regional management, and the BEQUEST Network Concerted Action.)
