Green IT is the study and practice of designing, manufacturing, using and disposing IT related hardware products in an efficient sustainable way with minimal or even no impact on the environment.

Green Software Engineering is the attempt to apply these "green" principles known from hardware products also on software products, software development processes and their underlying software process models.

The first main goal of the project is to to design a conceptual reference model supporting IT professionals and software users in the sustainable development and usage of software. The second main goal is to develop a software toolbox called "Sustainable Software Support Center" (S3C) that assists IT professionals in realizing systainable, resource-friendly software products.

Ecodesign is a well established concept amongst environmental specialists in Europe, but there is a lack of know how to support the systematic integration of environmental considerations in the design of ceramic products. Despite its economic importance, the ceramic industry is suffering the effects of the slowing down of the European economy and it reports the effects of the competition of products from countries where environmental and social standards in manufacturing are considerably lower. The ceramic sector needs competitive products to survive in the market and by addressing the environmental features good opportunities for innovation and differentiation arise while the impacts along the life cycle are reduced.
The main objective of the InEDIC project is the development of high quality training materials on ecodesign to the ceramics sector, in order to supply the designers, trainers and other professionals with the skills to apply this sustainability strategy and practice in companies and to disseminate this know-how in the VET system. This project is a follow up of a previous Leonardo Project, “Transfer of Knowledge in the Field of Ecodesign” (contract CZ/04/B/F/PP-168002), within which the InEDIC project will build on by updating the training materials and mostly by adapting them to the ceramic sector.
This project will contribute to improve the quality and innovation in VET systems, institutions and practices through the production of training materials on ecodesign for ceramics, thus filling an identified gap in the sector. The quality and innovative character of the materials, that will be available on line and include ICT-based products, is ensured by the knowhow of the partners and the design of the project itself, which encompasses pilot projects in real life situations, through the participation of ceramic companies. Therefore, InEDIC results are expected to have high applicability and relevance and will be integrated in the curricula of VET partners, boosting the impact of the project after its completion.
The main outcomes of the project will be the ICT based, state-of-the art training materials and ecodesign tools for the ceramic sector:
  • InEDIC Ecodesign Manual, a web based training tool
  • InEDIC Database of ceramic materials
  • InEDIC Database of ceramic technologies
  • InEDIC Support material for trainers, including didactics
  • Curricula development for the integration of ecodesign in ceramic courses
  • Case studies presenting the results of the 10 demonstration projects ceramic companies of the participating countries
  • InEDIC website where all results and resources will be available

SIRENA is the Regional Informative System for Environment and Energy for monitoring the safety, efficiency and sustainability of regional energy system of Lombardy.
SIRENA was founded in 2007 with the specific aim of monitoring fuel consumption and production and transmission / distribution of electricity in Lombardy, parameters critical to the competitiveness and environmental sustainability. With this objective, ensuring a high degree of updating information and communication in full transparency with an innovative service on web, the system provides all the information that, at different territorial levels and compared with other areas of interest, allow to delineate the energy dynamics of Lombardy.
Sirena is produced and managed on behalf of the Lombardy Region, from Cestec spa.
