Provence-Alpes Côte d'Azur Region (PACA)

who we are

The PACA region is organised into 6 poles, including the Innovation - Economy - Training pole, to which the Directorate of Economy, Research, Innovation and Higher Education (DERIES) belongs.

This service pools the contact points for SME support and public sector research lab support.

The DERIES account managers are the contact points for co-financing by the PACA region of projects preselected during the FUI call for projects (see DGCIS) and the regional call for projects, the APRF.

SECA Assignment Managers are the appropriate contact points for AGIR+ funds (2011-2014), the innovative global regional action plan.

The SECA (Service for Energy, Climate and Air) is part of the Directorate for Sustainable Development within the PACA region Strategic Planning and Sustainable Development pole.

The SECA account managers are the specific contact points for AGIR+ (2011-2014) fund grants, from the suite of AGIR (Global regional innovation strategy) funds.
