Sustainable MAnagement of Cultural Heritage in the Balkans in Response to Climate Change. Best Practices for Adaptation and Intercultural Cooperation - is a 1-year Central European Initiative (CEI) Know-how Exchange Program. It supports the exchange of knowledge and best practices between the EU and the Balkan region, to promote the sustainable management of cultural heritage in response to climate change. It will thus contribute to encourage climate change adaptation and, broadly, sustainable development in the area, engaging the regional decision makers and key stakeholders in a dialogue to compare current approaches and develop common best practices in this concern.

MUHAI - Meaning and Understanding in Human-centric AI is a 4-year Horizon 2020 Project funded by the European Commission, within the Enhanced European Innovation Council (EIC) Research and Innovation (RIA) action "FET Proactive - Boosting emerging technologies" (FETPROACT-EIC-05-2019).

At the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP21), a Memorandum of Understanding on climate change (i.e. risk evaluation, adaptation and mitigation) was signed between the Italian Ministry for Environment, Land and Sea (IMELS) and the Comorian Ministry for Agriculture, Fisheries, Environment, Land Management and Urban Planning.

Following a technical visit to the Comoros Union – a group of Islands located in the Indian Ocean, on the East-African Coast – in 2016, Contarina S.p.A. presented DECOR project, aimed at developing an Integrated Waste Management model, in a synergic effort together with the Comorian Authorities.

The unprecedented threat of climate change is posing a severe risk to human activities, due to the increasing frequency and magnitude of extreme events.

Introducing Climate Proofing in Investments and Spatial Planning (ICPISP) is a project by Enel Foundation and VIU – TEN Program, in collaboration with the Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC). It aims at applying a multi‐hazard approach for a Socio‐Economic Regional Risk Assessment (SERRA).

VIU_TeDIS is one of the partners of the SPROUT project: Sustainable Policy RespOnse to Urban mobility Transition, financed by the H2020 Program.

SPROUT provides a new city-led innovative and data driven policy response to address the impacts of the emerging mobility patterns, digitally-enabled operating and business models, and transport users’ needs.

When well communicated, science and research offer a number of potential benefits to society. But how can we recognize valuable scientific dissemination? When is it effective? How can we promote and incentivize science communication?
