2. RISC (Risk Identification of Soil Contamination):
Pollution - Wastes - Soil pollution
 In the period 1991Ė1994 the RISC (= Risk Identification of Soil Contamination) project was carried out. The objective of this project was the development of a framework for a knowledge-based system for risk identification of individual contaminated sites. The created RISC-framework uses expertise on presence and behaviour of contaminants in soils in order to predict potential risks for man and environment.

3. Tata Energy Research Institute (TERI):
Biosphere - Climate Change
 A dynamic and flexible organization with a global vision and a local focus, TERI (Tata Energy Research Institute) was established in 1974. While in the initial period the focus was mainly on documentation and information dissemination activities, research activities in the fields of energy, environment, and sustainable development were initiated towards the end of 1982. The genesis of these activities lay in Teriís firm belief that efficient utilization of energy, sustainable use of natural resources, large-scale adoption of renewable energy technologies, and reduction of all forms of waste would move the process of development towards the goal of sustainability.
