Décidata, Economy-Employment-Training data platform

At the initiative of the Region and within the framework of the SRDEII and the Regional Knowledge Strategy, an agreement has been signed by the State, the Region, the AER BFC, the BFC CCI and EMFOR to develop a shared arrangement for regional observation on the themes of Economy-Employment-Training, to be named “Décidata, socio-economic data platform in Bourgogne-Franche-Comté”. The ambition of this online tool is to provide, free of charge and to anyone, professional or individual, information on businesses and activity sectors, key regional figures, training offers, etc. Up to 10 geographic levels, more than 600 indicators using more than 20 regional and national suppliers. Numerous downloadable studies complete the knowledge of the region’s economic dynamics.

Observatory of Economic Land in BFC (OFER BFC)

Initiated by the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté Region to address the challenges of SRADDET and SRDEII, the OFER BFC observatory aims to observe sites with economic vocation or destination through a detailed understanding of their land. OFER BFC produces indicators and knowledge to support decision-making in economic development; its objective is to combine economic development with land sobriety goals.

The online platform provides tools to EPCI (public territorial collectives) allowing them to manage their zones and economic land: footprint, parcel availability. The observatory regularly synthesizes knowledge of economic land occupancy. This solution is also part of the Regional Knowledge Strategy; it is implemented with the support of ARNia.


Also, find the map of sites and activity zones, provided that EPCI agrees to publish detailed data:
