    Deliberative and participatory processes currently lack full legitimacy due to the exclusion and marginalisation of several vulnerable communities from democratic spaces. iDEM will address this issue in the context of marginalisation and exclusion of people who need support to fully be able to read, write and comprehend language (around six million individuals in the EU and over 90 million people globally). iDEM will lay the theoretical foundations for the analysis of current marginalisation from deliberative processes of diverse under-represented groups due to language skills and propose, implement, and evaluate inclusive deliberative and participatory spaces. It will adopt a user-centred approach for making participatory processes more accessible and inclusive, developing advanced natural language processing technologies and artificial intelligence to empower under-represented groups with tools to facilitate communication and dialog in democratic spaces. iDEM will co-create the next-generation multilingual models aimed at (1) detecting possible sources of problems in understanding messages and biases for several European languages and audiences, (2) automatically adapting texts in those languages to be accessible and unbiased for these audiences, (3) providing AI tools for enhancing the controllable generation of messages and discourses. iDEM will innovate democratic spaces with customised, user-centric technology enhancing the participation and representation of marginalised groups by providing unbiased and inclusive technology. To do so, iDEM will also build on the results of relevant past projects, and seek collaboration with related projects and relevant centres for democracy in Europe.

    The objective of LOCALISED is to downscale national decarbonization trajectories consistent with Europe's net-zero target to the local levels and provide the results to local authorities, citizens and businesses, in a way that would speed up the uptake of mitigation and adaptation actions. To this end, the project will create effective and clearly understandable tools that transform localised data on possible decarbonisation pathways by 2030 and 2050 into knowledge for action, namely: (1) the Decarbonisation Profiler for municipalities, regions and their citizens, providing information in all 24 EU languages, and (2) the Net-Zero Business Consultant tool. The tools will allow local authorities and policy-makers as well as citizens and businesses: to identify viable combinations and best practices of (sectoral) mitigation and adaptation measures for every NUTS3 region on how to reach the goals of the downscaled pathways and to introduce an adapted-to-case service for implementation and monitoring of SECAPs. This is closing a gap as the few currently available European platforms providing information on energy transition to net-zero in Europe have so far limited their scope and results to the national level (EUCalculator, INNOPATHS, CTI-2050), which is of little use at the level where the changes must be implemented. The project will additionally engage with EU citizen groups to inform how climate change and different EU net-zero scenarios positively and negatively affect their life and what share of mitigation can be enhanced via key behavioural change. Three local and five associated partners from local and regional administrations and business organisations will inform the development and test the tools. They will also be instrumental in supporting upscaling and replication through local and European dissemination and networking.
