About WP10

The connectivity fund provides financial support to AI researchers from all over Europe to visit host institutions within the network or vice versa. It mobilizes excellent researchers to collaborate on key AI topics, including those that cannot be envisioned beforehand, enables young researchers to gain experience in top European AI labs, helps unite Europe’s fragmented AI research community, brings in additional expertise, and reinforces Europe’s image as an open, inclusive research powerhouse for AI.
The connectivity fund consists of 2 million EUR, 75% of which is reserved as cascade funding for third parties to visit or host TAILOR labs, and will be administered by TUE. The remaining 25% will support actions within the network (see Tasks 9.3 and 9.5), and will be administered by the project coordinator, LiU, in collaboration with the WP9 leader,
UNIBRIS. Within ICT-48 as a whole, the connectivity fund provides an effective mechanism to facilitate exchanges between different networks of excellence, for which we will coordinate with VISION CSA.
