€ 50 million Horizon 2020 call to create network of AI excellence centres opens
The European Commission launched a new call for proposals under Horizon 2020 on 11 July 2019. The call aims to develop a European network of artificial intelligence (AI) excellence centres to enhance cooperation within the European AI research community and boost technological advancements in the field of AI. The objective is to encourage excellent research teams in Europe to join forces to tackle major scientific and technological challenges, hampering the deployment of AI-based solutions. The first part of the call aims to bring leading researchers together in European networks of excellence centres that will work on key AI topics. The second part aims to foster coordination and exchange among the selected projects, and other relevant initiatives.
The call has a budget of € 50 million and is open until 13 November 2019. It follows the EC's recent announcement of the €20 million investment for the creation of the AI4EU, an online platform that allows the exchange of AI tools and resources across Europe, in line with the European AI Strategy.
