Improved science-based maritime spatial planning to safeguard and restore biodiversity in a coherent european mpa network

The main objective of MSP4BIO is to develop an integrated and modular Ecological-Socio-Economic (ESE) management framework for the protection and restoration of marine ecosystems. The framework will take into account the criteria and objectives of relevant policies (MSFD, WFD, MSPD, CFP, etc.) and contribute to the EU Biodiversity Strategy (EUBS) 2030 and the Convention on Biological Diversity post-2020 framework. Six test sites in five European Sea Basins have been selected to conduct the analysis and to showcase and operationalise the ESE management framework. The test sites reflect the processes that are taking place at the national, sub-and-supranational levels, at different geographical scales, and focus on different socio-economic and environmental challenges.

SETO, a project funded by the European Union under the Horizon 2020 program, aims to address the inefficiencies in the current process of implementing directives and regulations in the transportation sector. This process is time-consuming, resource-intensive, and often applied randomly. It burdens regulatory authorities, leads to disruptions, accidents, infrastructure damage, and harms the environment.

To resolve these issues, SETO is developing an innovative digital platform. This platform collects and integrates data from various sources, providing simplified access to regulatory information. It ensures data security through the use of blockchain technology. It creates an innovative, consistent, and robust enforcement assistance system suitable for multimodal and cross-border environments.

SETO's goals are ambitious. They aim to promote a more competitive and equitable transportation market by optimizing human and economic resources, reducing costs, improving infrastructure sustainability, reducing accidents, and strengthening government control services.
To achieve these goals, the platform will be tested and validated in real-world scenarios with the direct participation of stakeholders. SETO is led by a consortium of 14 partners from seven European countries, bringing a diversity of expertise and know-how to all stages of the transportation value chain. This diversity will ensure the dissemination and exploitation of products and technologies developed within the SETO project.

Cerema Centre-Est, through its Department of Risk, Infrastructure, and Materials (DRIM), participates in the SETO project as a partner, developing an innovative system to identify and detect heavy vehicle axles, including when they are raised using inductive loops. Cerema also contributes to improving weigh-in-motion techniques and participates in tests of onboard weighing systems for heavy vehicles.

Horizon Europe Programme (2021-2027)



AWARD’s objective is to bring disruptive changes in the logistic industry by scaling Autonomous Driving Vehicles (AD Vehicles) system and Logistics Operation & Fleet Management (LOFM) system for heavy-duty vehicles, targeting compliance with ISO 26262 and taking into consideration SOTIF recommendations. The AD Vehicles’ Autonomous Driving System (ADS) will be based on multiple sensor modalities and an embedded teleoperation system to address 24/7 availability. The ADS will then be integrated into multiple vehicle types used in low-speed areas. Finally, these vehicles will be deployed, integrated and operated in a variety of real-life use cases to validate their value in the application and identify any limitations and functional level to address 24/7 availability. This challenge will be particularly tackled by extending the AD Vehicles performances under harsh weather conditions (rain, fog, snow) that are today limiting the Operation Design Domain (ODD), which describes the specific conditions under which a given AD Vehicle or feature is intended to operate. These are to be developed along with an adapted regulatory framework for autonomous logistics operations in warehouses, airports, and ports.

BisonHuman activities are mainly at the root of the massive collapse in biodiversity that is currently taking place. "In most parts of the world today, nature has been significantly altered by multiple human factors, and the vast majority of ecosystem and biodiversity indicators show a rapid decline. In total, 75% of the earth's surface is significantly altered...". Transport activities and infrastructures bear a share of the responsibility. However, solutions have been put in place since the early 1960s, and efforts to reduce the impact of infrastructures on biodiversity are growing all over the world, and particularly in Europe. The aim of the Horizon Europe BISON (Biodiversity and Infrastructure Synergies and Opportunities for European Transport Networks) project is to draw up a Europe-wide assessment of the actions, tools and practices applied throughout the life of a transport and energy infrastructure project that promote better integration of biodiversity. The best of these tools and techniques were selected for dissemination across the continent. This process also made it possible to reveal the barriers to their dissemination and local appropriation, to detect gaps in technical and scientific knowledge, and to identify the most up-to-date emerging themes. These elements were after several analyses then used to define a Strategic Research and Deployment Agenda (SRDA), revealing the research themes that remain to be investigated and based in particular on the dissemination of knowledge and. In this regard, an online technical handbook and guides on tools and technics, regulation and defragmentation has been produced by the BISON team for the benefit of the European Union. Cerema (and most of the Territorial Divisions as well as the DTecREM, managed by DTerSud-Ouest) has been heavily involved in all the WorkPackages of this BISON project, being the 6th in terms of the share of the overall BISON project budget allocated to Cerema, out of a total of 42 European partners. Thanks to this BISON project, Cerema is now seen as a key partner by most players in the field of biodiversity and transport infrastructure. All the deliverables from the BISON project will be available just before the end of the project on December 2023.

RISVAL - Seismic risk and alpine vulnerability - is a cross-border cooperation project between alpine valley communities, funded by Interreg ALCOTRA (France-Italy).  RISVAL aims to better characterise the seismic risk of the Alpine border region, which is most often subjected to low-intensity earthquakes but potentially destructive events (every 30 years or so). One of the objectives of RISVAL is to enable macro-seismic intensities to be rapidly characterised after an event. Shared tools will also be developed to describe the vulnerability of buildings and strategic infrastructures. Coordinated by the Aosta Valley Autonomous Region (Italy), RISVAL involves regional and local authorities in the development of seismic risk management tools: common database structures to improve knowledge and cross-border risk management, innovative cross-border surveillance system and cross-border strategies to reduce the consequences of seismic risks. 

Cerema offers its knowledge of the terrain and its experience to improve major movement prediction maps (shakemaps) in near-real time. It also carries out on-site measurements to estimate the vulnerability of road engineering structures (A51 and access viaduct to the Mont Blanc tunnel, known as the Egratz).

According to several studies, chronic exposure to indoor air pollutants causes problems such as allergies and respiratory issues, as well as other issues that can go unnoticed. For example, mental fatigue or decreased concentration levels, which affects intellectual performance and productivity. Around 70% of European schools, at some stage, exceed the maximum permissible levels of CO2 and, in turn, educational establishments account for one fifth of the tertiary sector’s building stock. Due to a lack of ventilation or a defective air renewal system, as well as high classroom occupancy rates, the indoor air in these buildings is often contaminated.

The 3SQAIR project (Sustainable Smart Strategy for Air Quality Assurance in Classrooms) aims at improving our gnowledge of the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) in educational buildings and identifying smart and sustainable innovation strategies at a national and regional levels. Its main objective is to develop a common strategy for achieving sustainable solutions that guarantee acceptable IAQ in classrooms.

The main objective of the TARGET project(2024 - 2027) is to promote the development and application of territorial planning models for sustainable water management and the prevention of crisis situations due to water scarcity, by integrating solutions and methodologies for the use of non-conventional water resources. 

The consortium implementing this project is led by the Etablissement Public du Bassin Territorial de la Dordogne (Epidor), and includes partners from France, Spain and Portugal. 

Work will focus on the various dimensions of water management: governance, technology, regulation, economic model, societal acceptability and vulnerability. The approach will also be multiscalar watershed planning to implementation of a program for the reuse of treated wastewater by a local authority, to project implementation.


Nowadays, in the Pyrenees, the slopes between 2,200 and 2,600 m above sea level are subject to seasonal frost, from autumn to spring, with the presence of ice in the soil and bedrock. By contrast, the upper reaches (>2,600 - 2,800 m) are home to permafrost (permanent frost). Permafrost is defined as continuous negative temperatures in the ground and bedrock, throughout the year and for at least two consecutive years. Unlike the Alps or Sierra Nevada, little is known about the thermal regime of permafrost in the Pyrenees, despite the major geomorphological and environmental issues associated with the risks of its degradation (slope instability, landslides, collapse of moraines, etc.).

To overcome this lack of knowledge, the project is divided into 3 major actions:

  1. Identification of Pyrenean permafrost using various tools (SAR interferometry, electrical surveys, drilling, sampling and installation of sensors) and at different scales (the entire Pyrenean high mountain area and a study of 9 specific zones).
  2. Analysis of permafrost evolution and response to climate change by monitoring the sensors in place, studying the characteristics of rocky materials and their evolution, and geomechanical modelling of 2 sites
  3. Risk management through the creation of maps and monitoring data
