Between 2008 and 2009 the TEN Center, together with the TeDIS Center, worked with the Veneto Region Environmental Protection Agency – ARPAV to create the knowledge basis to produce guidelines for the development of a database that links environmental data to health effects.
Between 2008 and 2010 the TEN Center, together with the TeDIS Center, worked with the Veneto Region Environmental Protection Agency – ARPAV on the modellization of the SIMAGE, an integrated system for environmental monitoring and emergency management, developed by ARPAV in collaboration with the Industrial Association of Porto Marghera (EZI).
The TEN Center contributed to identify the effects of different management alternatives on ecosystem services within the project on the definition of Sustainability Scenarios for the Venice Lagoon, carried out by Thetis in 2009.
In 2013 UNEP appointed the TEN Center of VIU to carry out a research on Climate Change Adaptation in the South-Eastern Europe Region.
The project, carried out between 2011 and 2014 with the support o f the Italian Ministry of the Environment, Land and Sea, aimed at creating a platform for sharing knowledge and experiences on environmental sustainability for Italian firms.
The project was developed in two phases. In 2011-2012 the project started mapping the Italian companies already walking on the path of sustainability, while publishing on a dedicate website news and case studies in order to stimulate other firms to start an innovation process. The second phase of the project, developed in 2014, aimed at providing Italian companies with information and knowledge useful for promoting their green products and activities also abroad, and kept enlarging the mapping and networking of green firms.
Within the area Green Economy, in 2009-2011 the TEN Center was involved in a research of the Corila – Consortium for Coordination of Research Activities concerning the Venice Lagoon, aimed at studying redevelopment opportunities for the industrial Area of Venice, Porto Marghera, taking into account also the environmental issues.
