Batiment-ventilation.fr: the referral French online website on the ventilation of buildings
Ayant pour objectif de mettre à disposition des acteurs de la construction l’ensemble des ressources sur les réglementations liées à la ventilation, le site www.batiment.ventilation.fr s'adresse principalement aux professionnels intervenant depuis la création et la prescription jusqu’à la réception et la maintenance des systèmes de ventilation.
 
Il contient à la fois une présentation exhaustive et accessible des principes techniques de la ventilation, un état complet et à jour de la réglementation applicable, une actualité réglementaire de référence neutre et...
With the aim of making all resources on ventilation regulations available to construction stakeholders, the website www.batiment.ventilation.fr is aimed primarily at professionals involved from the creation and prescription to receipt and maintenance of ventilation systems.
 
It contains both a comprehensive and accessible presentation of the technical principles of ventilation, a complete and up-to-date summary of the applicable regulations, a neutral and reliable source of regulatory news, an extensive bibliography with studies and reference guides on the topic, digital training resources for the promotion of best practices (MOOC, Serious Games) and frequently asked questions.
 
Supported by the Ministry for Ecological and Solidary Transition and co-financed by partners and the PACTE Programme, this site has been developed and is managed by Cerema, the Technical Centre for Aeraulic and Thermal Industries (CETIAT) and GreenMe, a company specialising in the quality of working environments.
BBC observatory: a tool to capitalise on best practices in low-consumption renovation and positive-energy construction
En octobre 2009, le Ministère de l'écologie, du développement durable et de l'énergie (MEDDE), l'ADEME et l'association Effinergie officialise le lancement d'un outil de partage d'expérience sur les opérations de bâtiments basse consommation : l'OBSERVATOIRE BBC (www.observatoire.bbc.org).

Depuis sa création, l'Observatoire BBC a pour missions de répondre aux enjeux suivants:
- Accompagner la généralisation des bâtiments à énergie positive et la massification de la rénovation,
- Valoriser le savoir-faire des professionnels,
-...
In October 2009, the Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy (MEDDE), ADEME and the Effinergie Association officially launched a tool to share experience on low-consumption building operations: the BBC Observatory (www.observatoire.bbc.org).

Since its inception, the BBC Observatory’s mission has been to address the following issues:
  •  Support the generalisation of positive-energy buildings and massification of renovation,
  • Make best use of professional know-how,
  • Help develop future regulations,
  • Identify training needs.
 
The BBC Observatory publishes annual technical and economic studies and a quarterly dashboard of Effinergie labels. At the same time, it publishes monthly "feedback" sheets allowing the general public and professionals to identify pioneering projects. Finally, the Observatoire BBC’s expertise allows it to participate in state-led focus groups on future regulations and to run conferences on positive-energy buildings and low-consumption renovation.

The free transport observatory is born!
En France, la gratuité des transports publics a jusqu’à présent été peu étudiée par la communauté scientifique. L’Observatoire des villes du transport gratuit, créé le 5 juin 2019 à l’initiative conjointe de l’Agence d’urbanisme de la région Flandre-Dunkerque, de la Communauté urbaine de Dunkerque et de l’association de chercheurs VIGS, espère faire bouger les lignes.
 
La création de cet observatoire répond à un enjeu d'importance : sortir des représentations idéologiques et enrichir les débats autour d'une politique publique à laquelle de plus en plus d'élus, ou futurs élus, s'intéressent, moins d'...
In France, free public transport has so far been studied very little by the scientific community. The Observatory of cities with free transport, created on 5 June 2019 as a joint initiative of the Flanders-Dunkirk Regional Planning Agency, the Urban Community of Dunkirk and the VIGS researchers' association, hopes to shift the boundaries.
The creation of this Observatory responds to an important challenge: to move away from ideological representations and enrich the debates around a public policy in which more and more elected officials, or future elected officials, are taking an interest, less than a year before municipal elections.
In addition to improving the state of knowledge about free public transport - in particular, it is a question of knowing which areas have adopted it, in France and abroad, and using which methods. This observatory aims to track, through monitoring, all developments concerning free public transport. It also aims to develop research on the subject, by initiating or conducting studies itself.
The activity of the Observatory of cities with free transport is subject to the control and validation of an independent scientific committee, chaired by political science researcher Maxime Huré.
The Observatory is aimed at a wide audience: residents, journalists, elected officials and technicians from local authorities who are interested in and questioning the free provision of public transport. Everyone will find useful and reliable resources to improve their knowledge of the subject.
