IECE is positioned to be the interface for academia and industry, providing services and actions in a) Research, development and innovation, b) Education and c) Consultancy. The aim is to provide mutual and beneficial exchange of knowledge, ideas and expertise, to create platforms for knowledge exchange and networking, and to develop programs and activities valuable on a national level.
Our education, research and capacity development programs are set around the following fields: Environment, Civil engineering, Energy, Management, Social sciences and IT. Through each of these fields, the Institute addresses the major sustainable issues and challenges societies are facing today. The holistic approach we have can support and give guidance via frame innovation methodology to public institutions in solving complex, open and connected problems.
The Collaborative-Innovative (CO-IN)© Model we have established supports the knowledge-based economy and enables communication and long-term cooperation among different relevant stakeholders (industry, government, educational institutions, professional associations and NGOs). It is an effective tool in addressing complex social, economic, and environmental problems.
