Joint Focus Group AI

The EIT AI Community and Digital SME Alliance are teaming up to introduce the Joint Focus Group AI and you're invited to be part of this collaboration.

This strategic partnership paves the way for Europe's most innovative startups, scale-ups, SMEs, universities and TTOs to actively engage in this venture. It's your chance to dive headfirst into the world of AI innovation.

Pioneering a new era in European AI leadership

The inception of this focus group was rooted in the goal of lending technical expertise to shape the EU's AI Act. 

It is undeniable that the EU faces a gap in AI capabilities. While home to some of the world’s best universities and research institutions, when it comes to commercial applications, we are falling behind. European companies have not bridged the divide between themselves and their US counterparts in terms of R&D spending. Simultaneously, the EU is at risk of losing the global talent race and has a marked shortage of AI scale-ups.

In light of these challenges, the time has come to chart an unequivocal roadmap. A roadmap that empowers innovation leaders to readily embrace AI solutions and one that propels Europe's AI ecosystem to assert global leadership.
