7. 90% Indoors ! Solutions for healthy and energy efficient buildings - 29 June 2017, Brussels

We spend up to 90% of our lives indoors. Yet the air quality inside buildings has been shown to be 2 to 5 times poorer than outdoors. This can also true for modern energy efficient buildings due to increased insulation levels and greater air tightness. The event will be an opportunity for policy makers, industries, building designers and academia to learn how innovative eco-materials can help address both indoor air quality and energy efficiency in buildings, and discuss how best to bring those innovations to the market. Participation is free of charge, however registration is required (please use the registration button on the right hand side). [read more]

10. Events - Mobility and Inclusion in Multilingual Europe (MIME) – A preview of research results - 27 April 2017, Brussels

The MIME project answers the Commission's request for analysis and practical orientationsregarding the handling of individual and societal multilingualism in a time of change. Theproject presents several notable features. In particular, it is focused on the public policyaspects of multilingualism, and aims to provide useful conceptual tools, helping decisionmakers to weigh the pros and cons of various strategies for handling the multilingualchallenge in a variety of contexts. It is also deeply interdisciplinary and combines the inputsof no less than ten different disciplines. This event is primarily destined for people whose work in politics, policy or administrationleads them to ponder the advantages and drawbacks of alternative language policy choices. [read more]
