The project coordinator is Inno AG (Germany) and the project includes in its consortium two Russian partners: the Institue of System Programming of the Russian Academy of Sciences (ISPRAS) and the Russian Technology Transfer Network (RTTN).
- The project SITE (Siberia, Information Technologies and Europe) aims to increase cooperation between Russian and EU researchers in the area of the IST Priority. The project is coordinated by by Singleimage Ltd. (UK) and involves in its consortium the Association for Engineering Education of Russia as a full partner.
