Projects 2012

Clustering Knowledge, Innovation and Design in the See Wood Sector, ID:WOOD - See Transnational Cooperation Programme, 4th Call

ID:WOOD project comes from the identified lack of organic policy approach required for the sustainable development of the wood sector in the project area as a whole, where the potential of forest resources is significant. Although the situation in all partners' countries and regions is not one and the same, the low R&D investments and innovation levels and the poor access of SMEs to technology and knowledge and their lack of record of internationalization are prevailing. ID:WOOD project aims to support the sustainable development of the wood sector in the project area by means of promotion and fostering innovation and competitiveness of SMEs. Technical and organizational know-how will be shared and transferred to enable local support organizations (wood clusters, wood tech centers and RDAs) to address structural deficits of SMEs and enhance innovation potentials.

ASDE is responsible for the obligatory work package WP2 COMMUNICATION ACTIVITIES aiming at:

  • Ensuring continuous, precise and timely flow of information inside the partnership and among the different levels of the project
  • Boosting the impact and transferability of the project results to target groups at transnational and national level
  • Creating a basis for monitoring of the project progress

The main WP2 activities carried out exclusively by ASDE are the development of project visual identity elements and project communication plan, its implementation and evaluation, development of project website and the contents and design of project promotional material and preparation of the transnational database/directory of project stakeholders

Current projects under the FP7 of the European Commission


European cities are some of the most attractive and desirable places in the world, offering unmatched opportunities for culture, recreation, living, and working. Our cities also play a vital role in the development of Europe and contribute to economic growth and innovation, knowledge-building and a cohesive society. However, European cities must work in concert to face a number of important challenges ranging from the current economic crisis, to sprawling development and the natural environment, as well as the longer-term implications related to climate change and resource scarcity (e.g., peak oil and water). The dire implications and potential impact of these challenges for our environment, economy and society suggests that urgent action is needed to ensure for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth (Europe 2020). By working together and following a collaborative approach to problem solving Europe will emerge stronger and more resilient.

In the context of European initiatives to improve policy as a more transparent and understandable process, the UrbanAPI project aims to support activities such as issue identification, policy analysis, consultation, decision and evaluation in urban planning and land management policy. For this purpose, a policy metamodel, a formalised vocabulary, a set of rule languages to define data integration and abstract simulation models are introduced. Furthermore, the UrbanAPI approach will transpose elements of agile ICT development to the urban policy making process: Multiple activities can run in parallel, and all activities are kept synchronized. In such a process, risks are identified earlier, conflicts are understood better, and that knowledge gained in one activity can directly be used in all other activities.
