When it comes to working or studying in a neighboring country or region, language remains a barrier for many. By leveraging AI tools, businesses can transcend language limitations, enhance collaboration, and foster successful cross-cultural partnerships The aim of this workshop is to present how the European Commission's AI-based language tools can improve cross-border working. The focus will be on e-Translation, the European Commission's machine translation system.
This cutting-edge neural machine translation system can translate texts in 32 languages and can be integrated into computer applications and websites. During the workshop, good practices will be shared to illustrate the potential of the tools, such as the Conference on the Future of Europe Platform, which enabled citizens to share ideas on the future of the EU and the initiative of the Architects' Council of Europe in the process of implementing the tool to support knowledge sharing and promote inclusion.
With Markus FOTI Head of sector, European Commission, DGT and Ruth SCHAGEMANN, ACE President.

The overlooked values of Sustainable Plus Energy Buildings and Neighbourhoods
This event aims at raising awareness on the multiple benefits of Sustainable Plus Energy buildings (PEBs) and Neighbourhoods (SPENs). Through a workshop session, we will provide evidence of the importance of a multiple benefits approach to support decision making when it comes to design plus energy buildings and neighbourhoods. We will also collect policy makers' needs and discuss how to ensure wide application of methodologies for the quantification and monetisation of the above-mentioned benefits.
Organised by EU-funded projects Cultural-E, syn.ikia and EXCESS, the event will take place on 11 October at the NTNU Brussels Office - Rue Guimard 9, 1040 Bruxelles.
Side event of the European Week of Regions and Cities.
