A proposal for an European AI on-demand platform
As part of Horizon 2020 Work Programme from 2018 to 2020, the European Commision has established a call to create a European AI-on-demand platform which mobilise the European AI community to support businesses and sectors in accessing expertise, knowledge, algorithms and tools to successfully apply AI thereby generating market impact. An additional call for language technologies has also being established.
Sparking Together is an initiative to create a strong proposal applying to that call. The basis of this proposal is starting from available platforms and communities to bring on board significant contributions from all European AI stakeholders. To bootstrap this community we endorse to bring arround 150 partners to the consortium following an Open Call procedure. At this point the procedures for this pre-proposal open call are being defined. In any case you are invited to show your interest in participating by applying in this site. The funding for these applications will range from 25,000 EUR to 200,000 EUR based on its contribution.
