Project name CE_ology
Objective Objective 3.1
Priority Natural and cultural resources
Aim Collecting digital data and creating databases in various fields (management and visitor systems, sustainable tourism and science especially Geololgy) as a basis for using best practice innovative digital tools in the future within Geoparks. These digital systems helping to valorise Earth history for local people, tourists, schools and universities.
This means an increased awareness of the geoheritage as well as innovation and new development options. The identity and the cooperation among the partners is going to be strengthened. The innovative approaches can be used for mainstream policies and foster green growth and resource efficiency.
Results The project result is a “Central Europe Geodatabase” including various fields, data, best practices and tested pilot actions. The implemented various pilot digital tools are connected and depend on the overall database. This means an opportunity for using the database in the future in every partners organization for gaining further important knowledge and best practices. These Central Europe Geodatabase is the basis for a sustainable valorisation of cultural and natural heritage as the users have the possibility to learn, exchange and collect what the best way is for their Geopark or organization out in the “real” world.

Benefit
Innovation Transnational cooperation is very important within this project as the basis in many work packages and tasks are different databases and exchanges of knowledge. The use of this tools gives the partners the opportunity to build a Central Europe GeoDatabase which can be extended in the future within all Global Geoparks or other fields for example. In addition, the best way to gain knowledge is to exchange and learn from various territories, countries or institutions. This means at the beginning of the CEology project partners are working together to start a European platform and knowledge transfer in various fields (especially science and sustainable tourism) to filter the best practices for every region. The work packages and activities include a wide range of innovative digital systems to test and implement. Most tools will be used within the partners institutions the first time professionally. At the end, the project partners using a blend of Earth Sciences, ICT and Visual Arts, user-centered multidisciplinary tools and applications to valorise Earth history.
