Europe's inherent multilingualism has never been so important, because the industrial economy is gradually being turned into a knowledge economy. In this context, European companies should be in a better position than others to take advantage of the business opportunities requiring multilingual communication. Nevertheless, the potential is far from being fully exploited. In fact, every year a significant percentage of European SMEs lose contracts as a direct result of the lack of linguistic and intercultural competences.
Locally, the reality of the Basque industrial base has also changed significantly. Basque companies and organisations now operate on world scenarios and markets, so they need products and services that enable them to move from monolingual to bilingual management, so that they can communicate and manage information in several languages.
The Basque Association of Language Industries - LANGUNE draws together more than 40 bodies (companies, technological centres, institutions and university research groups), which work in the sub-sectors of translation, language teaching, multilingualism management and linguistic technologies.

For all this, other key aspect of our work is to contribute, from the scientific standpoint, to enrich these policies and to enable their implementation within a policy framework that is coherent with the protection of the planet.
The expert knowledge fields in which our specialists are currently engaged are related to four main lines of research:
- Low Carbon
- Health and Climate Change
- The Natural Resources
- Climate Policy

IK4 Research Alliance
IK4 Research Alliance
The IK4 Alliance was formed in 2005 in line with a federal model, whereby its members share strategies and combine capacities without giving up their sovereignty.
Through a shared strategy, the sum of the capacities of the nine centres provides the alliance with the flexibility it needs to adapt to the characteristics of any company. In other words, this strategy qualifies it technologically to provide a global response to the needs of large companies, while simultaneously fostering its capacity to maintain a close and committed relationship with SMEs.
Today, IK4 is a benchmark on the European scene and is among the continent's main private, scientific and technological corporations. Attention should be drawn to IK4's leading role in the European Union's 7th Framework Programme, in which it has participated in over 200 research projects and led 63 of them.
IK4 is in an ideal position to establish long-term relations as a strategic ally of companies in the matter of innovation. This makes IK4 a benchmark in participation in research projects promoted by the public administrations.
