Description

Europe is implementing an AI strategy that seeks to create a research environment characterised by scientific excellence and that is consistent with the fundamental ethical values of its citizens. Part of this strategy foresees the consolidation of ongoing research activities through the creation and maintenance of an AI on-demand Platform that will act as a community resource for the research community and that will facilitate experimentation, knowledge sharing and the development of state-of-the-art solutions and technologies.

AI4Europe builds on the work of AI4EU and multiple supporting projects (ICT-48/ICT-49) to create an open, impartial, and collaborative Platform built by the European research community according to their needs. Equipped with the necessary hardware, the Platform will offer interoperable services, data, and tools from several related communities and provide solutions to facilitate research productivity, reproducibility and collaboration. AI4Europe will establish and support mechanisms to foster exchange between academia and industry and to ensure the Platform reaches out to and engages with the next generation of researchers.

The project will develop and implement a business model to ensure the long-term technical, and financial structures provide sustainability for the Platform beyond the project's lifetime. AI4Europe will support the community by creating a tool to help position Europe as the place where the very best AI research is conducted.
