The Architects’ Council of Europe (ACE) is the representative organisation for the architectural profession at European level. Its headquarters and Secretariat are located in Brussels. Its membership currently consists of 44 Member Organisations, which are the regulatory and professional representative bodies in all European Union (EU) Member States, and accession Countries, Switzerland and Norway. Through them, the ACE represents the interests of over 600.000 architects from 31 countries in Europe. 

The principal function of the ACE is to monitor developments at EU level, seeking to influence those areas of EU Policy and legislation that have an impact on architectural practice and on the overall quality and sustainability of the built environment.
The ACE is dedicated to the better understanding of technical, environmental and cultural values and to the promotion of the highest standards of education and practice in architecture. Its mandate is to ensure that the views and expertise of the profession are delivered to the institutions of the European Union and to seek, as far as possible, consensus among its Members in all of its policy positions.

We are a team of three women at ACE working on BIM4EEB:
1. Dr. Veronika SCHRÖPFER, Head of EU Research Projects, has a Diploma in Architecture, Master of Engineering in Real Estate Economics and Facilities Management, and holds a PhD in Construction Management on: ‘Social network analyses of knowledge transfer in sustainable office building projects in the UK and Germany’.
2. Larissa De Rosso, Assistant Project Officer, graduated as an Architect and Urban Planner with a Master in Civil Engineering from USP (Brazil) and a Master of Science in Sustainable Environmental Design from AA School (UK).
3. Gloria Oddo, Assistant Project Officer, holds a Master of Architecture from the Polytechnic School of the University of Palermo (IT).

At Politecnico di Milano Cecilia Bolognesi works on BIM4EEB, leading the visual communication among all the channels. She is an associate professor at the Politecnico for representation, survey and photogrammetry, graduated as an architect at the same University and holds a PhD in Architecture and Urban design from IUAV, Venice.

Our main work in the BIM4EEB project is ensuring that the progress and results are well communicated to all stakeholders and the general public. In a nutshell this mean, the project receives a lot of EU funding and if we do not tell anyone about the achievements and cannot explain our neighbour why this is worthwhile this money is lost.
Everything from conferences, trade fairs, publications, whether scientific or not, over training, to social media, such as twitter and LinkedIn are our daily job. The project partners tell us what they have achieved, discovered, developed, their ideas on how to change renovation and we help them to tell Europe and the world.
It would be great if even the general public would know ‘my building has been renovated so quickly because of this or that developed in BIM4EEB.
