IENE projects are educational, research or information activities that are not part of the core activities of the secretariat, but are authorized by the Steering Committee and directed by a respective WG. The projects are conducted through the collaboration between different IENE members.
There are also external projects, associated to IENE, which are owned and conducted by a third party but may refer to IENE as a back-up, collaboration partner or source of information, recieving support from IENE in any kind. Funding, management and administration of these associated projects is not under the responsibility of IENE. However the projects are asked to report activity or results to IENE.
