The VISION Project is comprised of a set of actions and mechanisms designed to facilitate and enhance the work of the new ICT48 NoEs, while at the same time providing additional value to the European AI research community, industry, and society more broadly.

Theme Development Workshops

At least two Theme Development Workshops cutting across multiple NoEs, bringing together researchers, industry representatives and other stakeholders to identify industrial trends and needs, and match these to AI capabilities in Europe.

European AI Trend Radar

The main results of the Theme Development Workshops as well as from similar events of the four NoEs will be summarised, and complemented by a market analysis and trend foresights to provide a comprehensive overview of AI capabilities and challenges in Europe.

AIDA – Human-Centric AI Education Programme

AIDA, the AI Doctoral Academy, is a joint initiative of ICT-48 networks (AI4Media, ELISE, HumanE-AI NET, TAILOR), co-lead by VISION and AI4Media, supporting European offerings for anything related to AI education.

New European Award for Top Young AI

Creation of a Young AI Talents Award to recognise and celebrate the next generation of AI researchers in Europe.

Community-Shared Best Practices in AI

Sharing of best practices, such as the FSTP Vademecum, standardised AI curricula module for AI non-professionals, a template for Theme Development Workshops to help NoEs to organise such events most effectively, mechanisms for industrial innovation and transfer of AI technologies.

Integrated Roadmapping

Joint working groups for tackling challenges that span multiple NoEs, including a group on road-mapping and strategy development continuously updating each other on the strategic steps planned by the NoEs and working towards a common high-level alignment of objectives.
