PROJECTS IN PROGRESS:

FREESIC
(Free Secure Interoperable Communications)
FREESIC is a collaborative research project discovering a solution that will allow highly secure and cost effective
interoperability between communication infrastructures over the entire Europe. Ardaco is the project coordinator of 9
partners and 5 associated partners is. FREESIC has been inspired by legal, organizational and operational barriers
the consortium has encountered during its previous activities.
Existing interoperability solutions such as gateways are the right approach and will simplify FREESICs adoption and
in return FREESIC will open broader possibilities for them. It will be operated free-of-charge and will offer open
source gateway, documentation and operational guidelines for others to use. The system should motivate end users
outside the consortium to request the integration from their system vendors or integrators.
The architecture will take into account on-going standardization research (e.g.: NCOIC Interoperability Framework) to
reduce the integration time and costs. The integration process will be simple; the system integrator takes the
gateway and modifies it as needed. The gateway remains the property of the integrator. The integrators do not have
to worry about disclosing any know-how or information. The communication between gateways will be end-to-end
encrypted and the gateway will be under full control of end user to avoid security concerns.

SmartCoDe
(Smart Control of Demand for Consumption and Supply to enable balanced, energy-positive buildings and
neighbourhoods)
Research project is focused on energy management in Smart Energy Grids at local level like buildings and
neighborhoods. Intelligent energy management combines traditional sources of energy together with local energy
sources and storages like wind and solar energy or hybrid car and electrocar batteries.
Today, such energy management requires fine grained infrastructure and expensive hardware. This often limits
applicability to industrial and commercial sector. Together with development of new methods for energy
management, one of the goal is to develop inexpensive (< 3€) hardware and software implementation platform which
can be used by 3rd party developers and manufacturers.
Ardaco role in project includes security analysis and implementation of security layer for used protocols with respect
to existing restrictions like computational power, energy usage, bandwidth and availability of PKI infrastructure.
Main international research projects: [1]A Long-Term Biodiversity, Ecosystem and Awarness Research Network -
ALTER-Net - 6 FP programme, The main goal of the project ALTER-Net is to assess the present state of the
biodiversity and its changes according to sustainable development. The goal is achieved by complex integration of
Network of Excellence. Project develops integrated approaches focused on unification and classification of
indicators, driving forces and pressures related to biodiversity on European level. [2]Sustainability Impact
Assessment: Tools for Environmetal,Social and Economic Effects of Multifunctional Land Use in European Regions
(SENSOR) SENSOR was an integrated project designed to substantiate the impact assessment process. It brought
together 39 research partners from 15 European countries, China, Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay. SENSOR
developed a broad view across policy arenas and land use sectors, which allows the user to simulate the impacts of
fundamental changes of policy orientation, such as the complete redirection of Common Agricultural Policy financial
support towards research and development. [3]Research and maintaining of biodiversity in historical structures of
agricultural landscape of Slovakia, The main object of the investigation was traditional agrarian landscape - the
mosaic of small scale arable fields, meadows and pastures. The main goal was to examine the extend of presence
and state of such historical structures of agricultural landscape (HSAL) in Slovakia and what is their importance from
biodiversity point of view. Based on the analysis of satellite images, combined with field investigation, over 3000
areas with presence of HSAL were recorded. Detailed interdisciplinary research carried on 3 basic types of HSAL,
served the basis for elaboration of the Strategy of optimal management. The Strategy was then offered to be
negotiated with local stakeholders and local authorities in 3 pilot areas. [4]Policy Influence of Indicators - POINT,
7FP programme; The project will focus on indicator sets that were specifically designed to influence policies. This
will include indicators for sector integration of environment, indicators for policy instruments such as sustainable
development strategies, and ex-ante impact assessments of policy suggestions including research and innovation,
but also indicators and indices, which are used by various stakeholders for policy influence. The work was carried out
at two levels: national and supra-national (EU). [5]The Global Observation Research Initiative in Alpine
Environments - GLORIA -Project 2008, The purpose of GLORIA is to establish and maintain a world-wide long-term
observation network in alpine environments. Vegetation and temperature data collected at the GLORIA sites will be
used for discerning trends in species diversity and temperature. The data will be used to assess and predict losses in
biodiversity and other threats to these fragile alpine ecosystems which are under accelerating climate change
pressures. Until now more than 100 study sites were included into observation network on 6 continents. The filed
investigation period carried in 2008, was in 2009 and 2010 followed by the complex analysis of data obtained from 18
European regions and comparison of these data with initial data obtained in 2001. The changes in species
composition, coverage in European alpine regions, vegetation thermophilisation and loss or increase of species
amount were assessed. [6]European Biodiversity Observation Network: Design of a Plane for an Integrated

FP6 STREP project - Networked Control Systems Tolerant to faults -NeCST Starting date: 1. August 2004, Duration
36 months, The aim of the project was to explore research opportunities in the direction of distributed control
systems in order to enhance the performance of diagnostics and fault tolerant control systems. This has to lead to an
improvement in the intensive use of NeCS technologies for the reactivity, autonomy and monitoring of large scale
systems. The systems under consideration in the framework of this project was considered as a distributed network
of nodes operating under highly decentralized control, but unified in accomplishing complex system-wide goals. One
of the key factors in designing such a complex system is that both the physical subsystem and the control part have
to be designed together in an integrated manner. FP7 CP project - Platform for Opportunistic Behaviour in
