Helping entrepreneurs located on either side of the border to create new digital services thanks to geodata on Greater Geneva – this is the aim of the Interreg project "Geofab Greater Geneva" launched on 4 April 2017.
The principle of Geofab is to facilitate the exploitation of a large number of digital spatial, land registry and geographical data, accessible as open data, by selecting and supporting innovative Franco-Swiss digital projects through four calls for projects over two years.

The objective is:
- to help project developers to put their innovative digital services on the market;
- to promote access to digital geographical data by project developers in the Greater Geneva area;
- to develop the digital market at the cross-border level.
