This is the 13 th owf May, that ATELIS received at the ESCEM campus the delegation of the provinces of Chile the Tarapaca and the Antofagasta. This delegation which visited Spain and France, wished to visit ATELIS to have an insight on the development of a methodology and tools to induce the Regional Development. The delegation was conducted by Jean-Marie Rousseau (TAO - ITINeRIS, 0612 555 143). Laurence Masson (Atelis) and Henri Dou (Atelis) welcomed the delegation and underlined how the collaboration with Chile was important Henri Dou made a reference to the visit in Cihle of the French delegation conducted by Alain Juillet (with the participation of various experts Philippe Clerc, Henri Dou, M Paillard, …). The two regions of Tarapaca and Antofagasta are very important because they concentrated most of the Chile production and reserves of copper. Because of the lack of water resource and energy, they developed verious approches to solve these problems and they expect to find in France orientations in this areas (Pholovoltaïc, hydrogen, storage, electricity production) as well as guideline and examples to develop different competitive intelligence units in thee domains. The example of Atelis and its implication in the regional development and international collaboration prmpted us to visit the center.
