To jointly develop and integrate people-centred development approaches into research, teaching and learning practices an alliance was formed between a higher education or research institution and an industry partner from the energy efficiency and sustainable energy sectors in each of the four participating countries:
- Slovenia: Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts and company Metronik;
- United Kingdom: Durham University and company Kemuri;
- The Netherlands: VU Amsterdam and company Alliander;
- Czech Republic: Charles University in Prague and company VUPS.
The project is coordinated by an intermediary organisation from Slovenia, IRI UL (Institute for Innovation and Development of the University of Ljubljana).
