Together with the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC), European DIGITAL SME Alliance has launched the DIGITAL SME Focus Group on Artificial Intelligence (AI). The Focus Group on AI will help to gain a better understanding of how SMEs adopt and use AI.

The SME AI Focus Group will convene online on 9 & 10 November 2020 for a 2-hour welcome online session (10.00-12.00 CET on each day).

The first day will focus on welcoming the new participants of the group. It will feature presentations by the European Commission on AI policy to provide a framework for the discussion. The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre will explain the main purpose of setting up the group.
