Focus Group AI – November General Meeting

Add to Calendar

DIGITAL SME’s Focus Group on Artificial Intelligence together with the European Commission Joint Research Centre, will organise a general group meeting on 29 November 2021, 8.30 – 11.00 CEST.

The workshop is an invitation-only event for Focus Group AI members and selected stakeholders from the European institutions and other organisations.

The past couple of months have been key for AI regulation in Europe and FG AI has shown to be a powerful forum to discuss SMEs interests and build a common position.

Building on that dynamic, we are organising a general group meeting on 29 November, in which we will elect the Steering Group of the FG AI, consisting of up to five co-chairs.

In addition, we will present the new working group pages structure, which will help you navigate funding info, relevant meeting and policy discussions. In order to streamline our communication, we aim to implement the new pages by January 2022.

Finally, we want to take the opportunity for a project matchmaking session where EU-wide partners will present relevant opportunities to FG AI SMEs.
