Focus Group Artificial Intelligence

The Focus Group AI is a joint initiative of DIGITAL SME and the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre with the aim to gather a strong network of SME-innovators at the European level. In the group, SMEs with AI expertise gather to network, identify key issues and hurdles to AI adoption and development, and to bring visibility to these key issues.

Be part of the discussion – As a member of the group you will be able to address the European Commission and regulators with experiences, problems and critical issues. This could lead to new beneficial policy initiatives like research tools, funds, regulations or guidelines.

Meet with like-minded innovators – You will be part of a European group of AI innovators and be part of public events, have access to information about funding opportunities and get insight on policy developments at the EU level.

In 2022 FG AI will be led by an expert Steering Group composed of:
– Emilia Tantar,PhD,  Black Swan LUX S.A. 
– Stelian Brad, Technical University of Cluj-Napoca 
– Pr. Thomas Bäck, divis intelligent solutions GmbH 
– Dr. Xenia Ziouvelou, NCSR Demokritos 
– Lucia Laorden, Decidata and Legal Hackers Bilbao
