CO-EFFICIENT is aiming to advance innovation and already available technologies for energy efficiency and use of renewable resources in operations and production processes of Mediterranean SMEs. In comparison to large companies, SMEs are generally slow to adopt energy efficient solutions as there is not enough communication and coordination between the R&D sector and SME systems, which evidently prevents technology and know-how transfer. The premise, on which this project is based, is that a permanent collaborative framework for energy efficiency and use of renewable resources linking SMEs, the R&D sector, as well as other institutional stakeholder in the Mediterranean area, will be able of improving collaboration between SMEs and the R&D sector and inducing important behavioural and technological changes in the field of energy efficient operations and production processes.

The main objective of this framework will be the set-up of a living lab environment, active in all partner countries in which SMEs as final users and R&D organisation as the main developers will collaborate to develop new solutions for better use of energy in production and operations. Two international living labs will be established each comprised of 5 local pilots. The first international living lab will develop eServices for SMEs in order to improve the energy efficiency of operations, especially in the context of supply chain relationships. The second international living lab will collaboratively develop a Frame of reference for energy efficiency and use of renewable resources in production and operations.  It will support SMEs in the identification of key production processes and operations that could be improved as far as energy efficiency or the use of renewable resources is concerned.


CentraLab: Central European Living Lab for Territorial Innovation


  • Program: Central Europe - European Territorial Cooperation Objective

  • Duration: 1.5.2011 – 30.4.2014

  • Lead Partner: E-zavod (SI)

  • Project Consortium: 10 Project partners from 8 EU countries

  • Core Action: variety of 10 cross border pilot projects

CentraLab transfers the approach and methodology of the TN MED programme’s MedLab project to meet the needs and objectives of Central European regions, in an ambitious exchange of best practice between two of the more peripheral zones of European Territorial Cooperation. In so doing, the project aims to transform Central Europe into a broad-reaching laboratory for innovation, including the social and organisational as well as technological dimensions. CentraLab thus aims to clarify the competitive advantage of a new model of innovation that draws on Central Europe’s deep, common cultural heritage to strengthen territorial cohesion, promote internal integration and enhance competitiveness through reciprocal learning and partnership building.

CentraLab, like MedLab, is based on a promising approach that has emerged in the arena of ICT under the name “Living Lab”. In this model, technology R&D brings infrastructures into real-life contexts to enable a “co-design” process with end users. This method ensures greater relevance and faster time to market for R&D results, as demonstrated by the 212 Living Labs in the ENoLL network ( The specific objective of CentraLab is to apply the Living Lab approach transversally across a broad range of policy fields relevant to Central European regional development, constructing a multi-level governance network for a trans-national Central European Living Lab. It thus contributes to “enhancing the framework conditions for innovation” (Area P 1.1), particularly in the organisational and policy dimensions of a new methodological research infrastructure.

The main activities in the 36-month CentraLab workplan include:

  • A survey of the current potential for application of the CentraLab approach (innovation policies, on-going R&D, and development initiatives), developing a new policy framework that increases the knowledge economy component of regional development initiatives in a range of fields;

  • A coordinated set of trans-national pilot projects that build partnerships, specify ICT platforms and services, and co-design innovative approaches for ten issues of shared concern:

  • - Eco-tourism,

  • - Energy, 

  • - Micro-SME Networks, 

  • - Media & Creativity, 

  • - Mobility, 

  • - Environment & Education, 

  • - Climate Change, 

  • - Waste Management, 

  • - Rural Development,  

  • - eHealth; 

  • A strategic governance work package that defines a framework for multi-level Memoranda of Understanding building up to a Central European-wide charter for the long term governance of the CentraLab network.

The project's main strategic outcomes fall into three categories:

  • - the R&D roadmap identifying the innovative ICT service requirements defined through the Living Lab approach;

  • - the development policy implications derived from the concrete experiences of mixing R&D with local development initiatives; and

  • - the governance models arising from the MoUs framing the pilot projects and their integration into the Central European-wide Living Lab.

A richly interactive web site and articulated set of Policy Briefing documents together with an aggressive media strategy and extensive calendar of events maximise the impact of CentraLab on citizens, private enterprises and public authorities drawn in to the Living Lab co-design processes throughout Central Europe.

eGovMoNet: eGovernment Monitor Network

Trajanje projekta: 2008 - 2010

Opis projekta:

Harmonise the measurements to speed up the improvements of eGovernment services

eGovMoNet is a European Thematic Network to stimulate development and take-up of good-practice for eGovernment measurement of user-satisfaction and impact.

eGovMoNet is establishing a sustainable community (across academia, industry, and public agencies) engaged in an active dialogue and innovation brokering, facilitated by periodic face-to-face interactions during open workshops or bench-learning sessions, and by steady remote collaboration. eGovMoNet is reviewing national eGovernment measurement frameworks to ensure that they provide a reliable measurement instrument, covering all critical areas, incl. impact and user satisfaction, and test the methods and tools, in particular automated large scale assessment tools.

An effort is made to streamline the efforts across Europe to achieve the highest possible degree of comparability among the national benchmarks. Good implementations will be shared and actively promoted through both the network’s internal and external dissemination channels, such as the EU’s ePractice portal.

All eGovMoNet activities are opened to all interested parties and the results will be developed under an open licence, ensuring the ease of further development and reuse. The network is demonstrating the benefits of sharing and provide effective collaboration routines to support a sustainable operation of the eGovMoNet community beyond the duration of the project.

Rural-eGov: Training SMEs of Rural Areas in Using e-Government Services

Trajanje projekta: 24 mesecev
Začetek projekta: Oktober 2006

Opis projekta:

Rural-eGov is a collaborative European project funded by the Leonardo da Vinci programme and focused on improving the uptake of e-Government services in rural areas across Europe.

The project will analyse the needs of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the rural areas of Wales, Greece, Germany, Poland and Slovenia who have different types and levels of e-Government services and deployment. It will look at the degree of awareness within rural SMEs of such services and review their status in the participating countries.

A vocational training curriculum will also be developed in order to help the target SMEs use and exploit e-Government services. The curriculum will adopt a blended learning approach, using a combination of ICT based learning, as well as more traditional forms of learning such as seminars etc. Innovative and relevant e-learning content will be developed that will support various training scenarios which will be tested with rural SMEs. In addition, a Web based observatory will be designed which will provide a collection and categorisation of e-Government services that can support rural SMEs. As part of the project deliverables, a set of policy recommendations will also be developed for EU agencies, National Governments and Rural administrations.

ITAIDE - Information Technology for Adoption and Intelligent Design for E-Government

Trajanje projekta: 54 months
Začetek projekta: 1. januar 2006

Opis projekta


One of the great challenges for European governments is solving the paradox of increasing security in relation to international trade, while at the same time reducing the administrative overhead carried by commercial as well as public administration organisations involved in the business of trade. It is vital to obtain and use timely information of business transactions and relate it directly to the passage of goods, services and people. This information gathering is very costly for organisations, business and public administration. Finding the right balance between control and cost of information gathering is the key to increase competitiveness locally, nationally and internationally.

ITAIDE innovates the redesign of systems leading to a fundamental simplification of taxation and customs procedures, while providing greater control, security, transparency and accessibility to data for the needs of public administration, business and citizens. ITAIDE integrates and strengthens European research for innovative modern government by enhancing service offerings and disseminating good governance practice through increased security and controls, while commensurately employing intelligent ICT to reduce administrative load burden.

ITAIDE offers the standardisation of interfaces to taxation and customs systems across Member States as a tangible response to the Lisbon agenda, facilitating the free movement of goods within the internal market and reducing the impact of tax and customs compliance costs for business. Organisations interfacing with standard systems obtain internal efficiencies through the piggy-back principle, while well defined interfaces with public administration drive simplified and coherent back office development. This then supports interoperability with other business, contributing to a positive and beneficial network effect built around standard approaches sponsored by public administration.

mGBL - mobile Game Based Learning

Trajanje projekta: 36 mesecev
Začetek projekta: 2. oktober 2005

Opis projekta

The number of people using mobile devices is growing quickly. Mobile penetration rates reach nearly 100% in some target groups. Mobile technologies offer new opportunities to support information processes in general and specifically learning processes. Currently, the efforts to apply mobile technology to learning are increasing. There are technology as well as pedagogically driven approaches. The mobility of learners, the accessibility via mobile devices, the independence of time and place, broadband access via mobile devices and new approaches for accounting like data flat rates etc. are driving forces for mlearning.

But there is a lack in services where users see real added value and which are reflecting the needs of users. There are some examples of successful mobile learning applications but there is no sufficient research on interactive game based learning using mobile devices, specifically mobile phones.

The project mGBL addresses this shortfall. It intends to develop innovative mobile game based learning services which base on the combination and application of existing technologies but also reflects the further technological development in the mobile sector. The mobile game based learning approach of the project addresses mainly the user group of young people who in general have high relation to mobile technologies. But the developed learning models and also the services shall be adoptable also for other target groups. The project is based on theoretical approaches and practical experiences in collaborative elearning and game based learning.

The research and development processes are organised iteratively with the involvement of potential users from the very begin of the project. Therefore user partners from 4 different European countries are involved in the consortium who will be involved in the research and development processes. The content of the services developed in the project will reflect the metalevel of educational advice services.

SEAMLESS - Small Enterprises Accessing the Electronic Market of the Enlarged Europe by a Smart Service Infrastructure

Trajanje projekta: 30 mesecev
Začetek projekta: 1. januar 2006

Opis projekta

The SEAMLESS project studies, develops and experiments an embryo of the Single European Electronic Market (SEEM) network where a number of eRegistries/Repositories (RRs) are started up in different countries and sectors. Distinctive features are:
- Addressing Craft & Trade (C&T) companies through the respective mediators (chambers of commerce, entrepreneurial associations, local development agencies, ASPs).
- Focusing on two sectors, Textile (TEX) and Building & Construction (B&C) that are relevant to C&T companies and present overlapping areas (e.g. fabrics for tapestry).

- Starting up experimental RRs in both EU-15 and new member states (NMAS) and establishing interactions between them based on a proper collaboration framework.

In adopting eBusiness solutions, the target companies present figures lower than those of larger enterprises and increasing at a slower pace. The situation in NMAS, where the percentage of C&T is even larger than in EU-15, is generally worse, with significant differences between countries. The SEEM vision is towards a web-based marketplace where companies can dynamically collaborate without cultural and technological constraints. The SEEM allows an objective comparison of profiles and offers of company of any size and location, and this could open the eBusiness space to the many small companies providing high quality products and services at lower cost that now risk to be left aside from the electronic market. The main project activities are devoted to define a collaboration framework and proper business models, realise evolving sectoral ontologies, develop a technological infrastructure and a number of applications and services on top of it. Five eRegistries are experimented, in Poland and Slovenia (B&C sector) and in Spain, Slovakia and Romania (TEX sector).The Consortium includes 15 members, as RTD performers, software developers and mediators. The resources, in terms of effort and costs, are well-balanced between EU-15 and NMAS partners.
