International AI Doctoral Academy (AIDA)

The four ICT-48 networks (AI4Media, ELISE, HumanE-AI NET, TAILOR) and the VISION consortium joined forces and under the co-leadership of the VISION and AI4Media founded a joint initiative to support a wold-level AI education and research programme.

The International AI Doctoral Academy (AIDA) has been created for offering access to knowledge and expertise and attracting PhD talents in Europe.

The aim is a joint coordination of the PhD/postdoc educational and training activities on AI of AIDA partners. The AIDA aims to become a truly international reference portal for any AI PhD student and researcher.
