VISION Project

Value and Impact through Synergy, Interaction and coOperation of Networks of AI Excellence Centres
Grant agreement ID: 952070

Artificial intelligence (AI) is an area of strategic importance and a key driver of economic development, bringing solutions to many societal challenges ranging from treating diseases to minimising the environmental impact of farming. The EU is focussing on connecting and strengthening AI research centres across Europe and supporting the development of AI applications in key sectors. To ensure Europe stays at the forefront of AI developments, the EU-funded VISION project will build on Europe’s world-class community of researchers. The project will also build on the success and organisation of CLAIRE (the Confederation of Laboratories for AI Research in Europe) as well as of AI4EU, which was established to set up the first European Artificial Intelligence On-Demand Platform and Ecosystem.
