The main purpose of the NAINE network is to contribute to increased number of EU proposals within AI involving Norwegian institutions. NAINE is open for everyone in Norway interested in AI and national and European collaboration.
NAINE spans across academia and industry, research and application. In line with the European Commission, we use the expression AI in the broadest context covering machine learning, deep learning, hybrid analytics, learning based control systems, optimisation etc. At the moment, EU does not have an overarching programme for "everything AI". Instead, AI is covered by multiple initiatives in and alongside the EU framework, both in the running H2020, Horizon Europe, and the coming Digital Europe Programme for 2021. NAINE is monitoring selected calls and activities, forwarding information and coordinating hearings for calls together with the Research Council of Norway. In addition, we will organize two workshops yearly with information about relevant activities and calls as well as networking opportunities.

The beginning of a Strategic Agenda for a European AI Public Private Partnership
In the beginning of June euRobotics and BDVA (the Big Data Value Association) published a joint Strategic Agenda for a European AI Public Private Partnership (PPP). The objective of strategic agenda is to bring together the stakeholders from the European AI Innovation Ecosystem to achieve a consensus on the way forward in advancing AI in Europe developing strong foundations for a European Public-Private Partnership on AI.
AI Ethics, European AI Alliance and the High Level Expert Group
AI is used to describe a broad range of algorithms. If you wonder what is covered by the definition used by the European Commission, “Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to systems that display intelligent behaviour by analysing their environment and taking actions – with some degree of autonomy – to achieve specific goals”, you can refer to this definition document from the AI High Level Expert Group (AI HLEG). The general objective of HLEG is to support the implementation of the European strategy on Artificial Intelligence. This will include the elaboration of recommendations on future-related policy development and on ethical, legal and societal issues related to AI, including socio-economic challenges.

CLAIRE, the CERN of AI research
CLAIRE (Confederation of Laboratories for Artificial Intelligence Research in Europe) is an initiative by the European AI community that seeks to strengthen European excellence in AI research and innovation. To achieve this, CLAIRE proposes the establishment of a pan-European Confederation of Laboratories for Artificial Intelligence Research in Europe that achieves “brand recognition” similar to CERN.
