Onsite Attendance

The workshop is designed specifically for the entire AI NoEs’ Community:

Also the representatives of the European Commision, ADRA, ADRA-e and AI4Europe are more then welcome and expected.

Due to limited room capacity, the workshop is open to a given number of NoEs community members to attend on-site. To ensure a balanced group of in-person participants from NoEs stakeholders, each NoE will receive 8 tickets. It is up to the NoEs coordinators and project managers to decide on on-site participation for each NoE and distribute this link.
We look forward to the scientific, industrial and strategic leadership of NoEs, namely:

  • Partners responsible for the strategic connections and direction of the NoEs (usually the coordinators)
  • Partners responsible for the AIDA (skills development activities)
  • Partners responsible for the SRAs and mapping of ecosystem
  • Partners responsible for the communication activities and connection to the ecosystem (and industry)
  • WP leaders with technical expertise
