International projects LiCEA (www.licea.eu) The goal of LiCEA is to develop and apply SMART tools that allow the discovery of numerous unexploited energy saving opportunities in regional industrial clusters along the supply chain of SMEs. PPP4 Broadband (www.ppp4broadband.eu) PPP4Broadbands aim is to develop set of transnational tools, methodologies and guidelines using PPP models for investment and operation of missing Broadband infrastructure. AutoNet (www.autonet-central.eu) Aim of AutoNet project is to facilitate the development of the network of business supporting actors leading automotive regions of Central Europe. Youth4Job (www.youth4job.eu) The results of the project should be mainly the improvement of personal vocational orientation and guidance services in Europe, with a stronger implication in terms of employment perspectives, forecast and anticipation capacity. InoPlaCe (www.inoplace.eu) Project overall objective is to improve framework conditions for innovation for the specific end beneficiaries - Young Innovators. Young Innovators are targeted as one of key driven forces for development of Knowledge based economy in regions and brining to regions high value of innovation potentials. www.aiec-ngo.eu 7.

Broadband Development Quality infrastructure is the key element for the development of the regions in order to attract investors, entrepreneurs and also to improve the quality of life of citizens. Broadband is such a kind of the infrastructure which has, especially in the South East European rural areas, significant gaps in the coverage, capacity and quality. As private as well as a public sector alone cannot solve the Broadband gap in the South East European rural areas, there is the opportunity to establish successful cooperation between Public and Private Partners. PPP4Broadband project partnership aims to improve Broadband coverage in the South East European rural areas by Public-Private Partnership. AIEC is a lead partner of the PPP4Broadband that researches 9 PPP models tackling Basic, NGA and Ultra-fast broadband. In each participating country there will be established PPP4Broadband National Centre of Excellence with role to provide knowledge, experience, guidance (using developed PPP Models) and standardization. Network of PPP4Broadband Centres of Excellence will be established in order to assure the quality and availability of services also after the project closure. www.aiec-ngo.eu 9. www.aiec-ngo.eu 2. Energy Efficiency To improve the European competitiveness, the reduction of energy costs is a strategic point. Energy efficiency in the industrial processes allows to obtain the reduction of primary energy consumption, to the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions and to improve the strength on the market. The 2006/32/EC highlights the role of the Member States to ensure the availability of efficient energy audit schemes, designed to identify potential energy efficiency measures, applied to all end consumers, including Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). But while several efforts have been made on the front of standardization for building auditing and to energy certification for building, the industrial audit for SMEs still needs a specific scheme and tools. Involving partners from 5 European countries, LiCEA partnership aims to find results useful for SMEs located in Central Europe territory. Energy efficiency in SMES is going to be reached through so called LiCEA project (Life Cycle based Energy Audit). The goal of this project, where AIEC is one of 6 partners carrying out the activity in Slovakia, is to develop and apply smart LiCEA tool allowing the discovery of numerous unexploited energy saving opportunities along the supply chain of SMEs. 10. 3. Youth Support www.aiec-ngo.eu AIEC recognizes the potential of young people as one of the key driven forces of development, bringing to regions high innovations potential. AIEC works on several activities targeting young innovators and youth in general. 11. www.aiec-ngo.eu Partners 12.
