DAPLAB aims at facilitating the access for enterprises and universities to emerging technologies in the area of big data and intelligent data analysis. Many business processes are nowadays generating significant volumes of data that contains valuable information. One of the main objectives of DAPLAB is to reduce the barriers to entry for Swiss companies to find value out of their data. More specific objectives are to answer the needs of educational and economic partners through the integration of analytics algorithms, benchmark data sets and educational materials. As a central point of its activities, DAPLAB will manage an infrastructure composed of cluster of servers dedicated to data storage and computation, to which universities and companies will have access.

As part of the Smart Building Light-EcoBITs and PhotoPAC projects, an IT platform has been developed for energy optimisation in buildings. This platform is based on an electronic module that communicates with the building and intelligent algorithms hosted on a server or in the Cloud.
Discussions with those active in the areas of building security and personal assistance (for the elderly or patients at home, the disabled, old people's homes, etc.) have also highlighted the need – and the opportunity – for the realisation of a full-service platform for buildings.
Today, each service uses its own infrastructure: heating management and energy consumption monitoring, access to smart meters, lift alarms, personal assistance, etc. Multiple services lead to a proliferation of infrastructure. Access modules, installation procedures, access and management are all different. Having a multiservice infrastructure will facilitate deployment of new services and make existing services more cost-effective.

In the near future, large companies and government entities will certainly require suppliers to provide a CO2 certificate validated by an official body. This approach is currently too expensive for most SMEs, as the collection and processing of data represents a very heavy workload.
The project objective is to design a computerised platform that will facilitate the necessary data entry for preparing CO2 balance reports in accordance with ISO 14064. The tool will analyse and compare statistics, delivering key indicators to guide the company’s improvement programmes and enhance its marketing. It will also provide exclusive information, best practices and allow for inter-company benchmarking.
EcoBITS covers a wide area of "clean tech" in which many of the region's business sectors are present. Its objective is to adapt the energy management system developed initially for large buildings to the needs of rental properties and houses. This predictive, self-learning system optimises energy consumption in buildings, ensuring the same, or better, user comfort.

Smart Building covers a wide area of "clean tech" in which many of the region's business sectors are present. Its aim is to design the model and methods for developing a predictive, self-learning system that will optimise energy consumption in buildings, ensuring the same, or better, user comfort.
Businesses in the region will lead the way in building energy management and will be able to offer more attractive benefits.

The Cluster for e-Government competencies, eGovTeC, is a collaborative initiative between academic, cantonal, local and private sector partners who are active in the IT area. This initiative is sponsored by SECO. eGovTeC aims to position the canton of Fribourg as a leader in the implementation of e-Government solutions, in line with the vision of the Confederation, and in compliance with the eCH standards for administrative processes (http: //www.egovernment. ch / en / index.php). Fribourg has a privileged position in this context because of its geographical, cultural and particularly its linguistic situation.
E-Government is an integrated and continuous way of providing public services with the optimal application of information technology and communication. It calls for process optimisation, organisational changes and the development of new professional skills. The goal is to improve the quality of public services, to enhance the competitiveness of the Swiss economy and support the democratic process and public policies.
The competence centre aims to facilitate regional companies’ access to the e-Government market. Its role is to:
• Support the implementation of new technologies linked to e-Government;
• Establish an infrastructure for developing and testing products and services that are compatible with the SECO infrastructure at federal level;
• Coordinate the development and implementation of solutions, including training;
• Form a bridge between federal government and the Fribourg region;
• Ensure long-term follow-up to sustain knowledge, skills and infrastructure;
• Support the creation of a startup specialising in the area of e-Government, focusing on synergies with the activities of partner companies.

This project is closely linked to the previous one . It aims to help regional businesses to acquire knowledge and skills so that they can become real specialists in Internet application security. This project will train high-level professionals throughout the canton and assure them of mandates since, in future, they will be able to provide their services to companies needing to reinforce their security.

NetObservatory has made it possible to establish a security monitoring service for the benefit of SMEs. It works in collaboration with the access and website hosting providers of the companies and organisations that use the service.
SMEs, along with associations and other smaller organisations, are highly exposed to the dangers of cybercrime. They are generally not in a position to have their own monitoring capability and cannot react quickly to any attack. The access and web hosting providers are not able to ensure their safety in a targeted manner. This observatory will allow businesses that do not have security experts to protect themselves from cybercrime in the future.
