IFP Energies Nouvelles (IFPEN) and UNESCO have signed a framework partnership agreement concerning research and training in the field of geoscience. This collaboration mobilizes IFPEN’s expertise to support the priorities of UNESCO’s International Geoscience and Geoparks Programme (IGGP), such as the promotion and understanding of the “Earth Systems” and sustainable use of natural resources.
Within this framework, TELLUS LAB experts will take part in a joint digitalization project with UNESCO.
Notably two TELLUS Tools are considered for deployment in UNESCO Global geoparks:
The two main objectives are to educate geoparks visitors in a fun and entertaining way, but also test and enrich these applications drawing on a participative science approach.
