The event series "3 Digitale Dagen" is organized by the Gemeente Heerlen, Provincie Limburg and the Brightlands Smart Services Campus Heerlen in cooperation with the City of Aachen and Thor Park Genk.
The "3 Digitale Dagen" are aimed at everyone who is interested in the digital possibilities in our society. For strategists, decision-makers and project managers. For companies, knowledge institutions and governments. The days are also intended for startups, SMEs, young professionals and students in the Euregio!

The event will take place on 3 different days in 3 different cities. As cities in the border region, Heerlen, Genk and Aachen each invest in the development of know-how to strengthen the economy and the labour market. The mutual exchange of knowledge contributes to the acceleration of economic opportunities. The use of these opportunities depends on direct contacts on both sides of the border. It is relevant to know and respect the respective procedures, habits and culture.

Digital Day 1: Speech recognition and simultaneous translation

We are pleased to be able to present you the exciting topics of speech recognition and simultaneous translation this year, which are currently undergoing an extremely rapid development.
