National Energy Conservation Agency (NAPE) was established in 1994 with an aim of popularizing efficient and rational energy usage, above all in the building sector, and the principles of sustainable development.
We specialize in energy consulting, energy auditing and certification of buildings. NAPE is one of the few companies in Poland that elaborate energy performance certificates for complex buildings equipped with advanced technical systems and for public buildings.
NAPE participates in projects co-financed by the European Commission concerned with energy efficiency of buildings, financing modernization of buildings, renewable energy sources implementation, polygeneration, promotion of energy saving, integrated design, and innovative HVAC technologies.
The Local Energy Agency of Gorenjska was founded as a public institution by the City Municipality of Kranj in 2009, and was co-financed by the European Commission programme Intelligent Energy Europe.
We offer consultation with municipalities and companies on energy management, preparation of documentation for tenders, use of Renewable Energy Sources and the documents required by law.
The Agency works in accordance with local and national programmes concerning Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and Rational Use of Energy (RUE) to actively promote the energy outlook of the region.
The Local Energy Agency of Gorenjska assists local institutions in planning projects to reduce energy consumption and maximize energy efficiency. Activities are directed towards raising public awareness in the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources such as biomass, biogas, geothermal, solar and hydroelectric energy. Through seminars, workshops, conferences and our website we help to remove or reduce local obstacles to the implementation of RES and RUE. We can provide professional support, knowledge and experience to all educational institutions. Emphasis is placed on developing a new approach to saving energy in businesses and public buildings. We are committed to fulfilling the energy, environmental and international objectives of RES and RUE.
The European Science Communication Institute (ESCI) is a not‐for‐profit organisation that empowers scientists and engineers, helping them to communicate to a non‐expert audience, thus bridging the gap between science, technology and society.
As a truly European organisation, ESCI draws on key contributors from across the continent. Their senior science communicators work in France, Belgium, the UK and Germany. The European Science Communication Institute also enjoys close ties with science communication specialists in almost every EU country, which enables it to deliver locally adapted solutions in different languages. The ESCI team has experience in web, social media, print, audio‐visual and direct 1:1 communication to accomplish a successful mix of communication and dissemination activities. This includes measuring impact and adjusting the approach where necessary.

Knowledge and Innovation (K&I) is a social research organisation based in Rome. Its members are social scientists that have been carrying out around 30 projects, along the last 20 years, in the frame of the EU DG research FP4, FP5, FP6, FP7 and H2020 on issues such as ecological responsibility and energy transition, environmental sustainability, socialisation of the scientific research, public engagement and responsible research and innovation (RRI); gender and science; societal issues related to natural and man-made hazards; poverty, privacy and security; social exclusion and social polarisation; etc.
The mission of K&I is to increase the relevance and effectiveness of the social sciences to interpret the profound processes of change that are affecting contemporary societies, understanding how they are evolving over time, identifying connected societal stress and investigating available options and tools for their effective management. One of the main focuses of K&I is the emergence of new forms of science governance, due to increasingly complex interactions with ever broader sectors of society (public sector, industry/enterprises, civil society organizations/citizens, specific social groups such as migrants and elders, etc.), which affect science and technology research organizations’ functioning and role.
K&I carries out activities in Italy, in Europe and worldwide, using an interdisciplinary approach. These activities include research, training and capacity building, networking and science communication, public engagement , consultancy, as well as the production of guidelines and other tools that can help setting new policies or changing existing ones. Attention has been paid by K&I also on the progressive changes in gender relations in the wake of a growing demand for social equality also in the science realm.
K&I is currently involved in the implementation of many projects funded under H2020.
With respect to INNOVEAS Project, K&I will lead the WP2 (State-of-the-art, needs and barriers assessment) and, in this frame, the tasks 2.1 and 2.2. K&I will also participate in all the other WPs, giving a specific contribution on the training WPs (WP3 and WP4).
