Environmental Research Group Oxford (ERGO), Oxford, United Kingdom, is a company established in 1985, which specializes in applied research for sustainable development and provides a broad spectrum of advisory services relating to environmental assessment, natural resource management, project implementation and technical back-stopping. Avia-GIS established jointly with ERGO a European economic interest grouping: Euro-AEGIS.

Based in Toulouse (France), MEDES is a group of economic interest created in 1989  with the mission to develop an expertise in the medical supervision of manned flights  and the preparations for future interplanetary manned missions and to apply  the results of space research on the areas of Healthcare.  In order to meet space and clinical resaerch needs, MEDES runs  a centre for medical experimentation, the Space Clinic. MEDES has also invested for more than  20 years in many telemedicine  or medical research projects.

PAN-Livestock services is an independent consultancy company, established in 1980, specializing in livestock development. The company is based in the School of Agriculture, Policy and Development at the University of Reading, close to London in the south of England.

SIGGIS was founded on the 18th of August, 2008 by Henri Van Oosterwyck and Lieven Verheust. In the months following the founding, several former co-workers were hired in addition to new experts. By the end of 2008 the company comprised over 30 GIS and IT expert. On the one hand, SIGGIS means “SIG-GIS” (Système d’Information Géographique – Geografisch Informatie Systeem; i.e. The French and Dutch translations of GIS pasted together) but on the other hand, it primarily means “Spatial Intelligence Genuine & Generic IT Solutions”.

2Learn is a young dynamic company whose activity is focused on the conception and organization of sustainable solutions in high quality continuing education projects for medical, para-medical and agricultural sectors. A multidisciplinary and multicultural team runs the company on a daily basis with the permanent aim to provide high quality services to its customers.
