Consultation Workshop on Edge AI  - KDT JU’s Focus Topic Call 2023

Join us in shaping the European Edge AI leadership!

As part of the preparation of KDT JU Work Programme and Call 2023, a focus topic on Edge AI is under discussion. The work programme promotes focus topics notably in the context of delivering on national and European policy priorities such as digital leadership.

We are organising a virtual open workshop on Monday 24th October 2022 (16:00 – 18:00) to get feedback from the ECS (electronic components and systems) community on our vision for this focus topic. The baseline of the workshop is a long-term strategy for a series of focus topics in this area, as well as a specific draft text for Call 2023, as it was prepared by a core team of experts gathered by the three industry associations that are partnering in the KDT JU.

The workshop is organized in two parts. The first part will include a general presentation of the workshop baseline and brief pitches by selected experts. The second part will open the debate with the audience.

Participation at the event is free of charge, but registration is compulsory.
