In evaluation of "Potential impact through the development, _dissemination and use of project results" we achieved the highest score 5,00 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. FREESIC project webpage –http://www.freesic.eu/ FP7-SEC-2011-1, funded by European Commission, Project ID 285205 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: 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. 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. 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. 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). 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. European Biodiversity Observation Network: Design of a Plane for an Integrated R&D of Numerical optimization algorithms, R&D of Software for Pharmacokinetic studies currently, design of space- approved electronics and optics for low orbit spectrometry.

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 Incompletely Specified, Heterogeneous Object Communities - POBICOS Starting date: 1. May 2008, Duration 36 months, Partners: VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, Warsaw University of Technology, Center for Research and Technology Thessaly (Greece), Accenture Technology Labs (France) Center for Renewable Energy Sources (Greece). The POBICOS project targeted computing environments which feature collections of objects, equipped with sense/computeactuate embedded nodes, which differ in their sensor, actuator and computing resources. Moreover, the actual mix of objects, and the resources provided by those objects, which will be available during execution is partly unknown when programming the application(s).

The leading scope of realized project was obtaining set of modern geochronological data based on U/Pb, Lu/Hf isotope methods, monazite CHIME and FT + (U–Th)/He dating and the interpretation of the evolution of the Western Carpathian basement crust in time. REBECCA – Project realised in 2003-2006 in the frame of 6. FP. The aim of the project was to esthablish the relationships between biotic and abiotic parameters of ecological water state for the aid to member states EU in implementation of Water Framework Directive (partner). Climate Water – realised in 2008-2011 was the 7th Framework Programme project of the Co-ordination and Support actions. Its main objectives are: water-related impacts of the climate changes, adaptation strategies, research needs in the climate impacts on the water cycle and water users and identifications of gaps in the implementation of EU water policy (partner).
