For a truly vibrant Network of Excellence

Deadlines any year: 15th March – 15th July – 15th November

Connecting all of Europe’s top AI labs

The TAILOR network includes many of Europe’s top AI lab, and we want to reach out to the many other excellent labs and organizations across Europe to work together and create new breakthroughs in AI.

We especially aim to support young researchers to gain valuable experience and nurture the next generation of AI researchers.

Research Visits

We support research visits between 1 and 12 months. We will pick up the bills so that you can focus on doing excellent AI. You must either be from a non-TAILOR lab visiting a TAILOR lab, or vice versa.


We support workshops that bring people all across Europe together to solve hard problems in an open atmosphere. Workshops should explicitly bring TAILOR and Non-TAILOR researchers together.

Great! Can I apply?

The connectivity fund is open to all European AI researchers. You should be able to demonstrate that you live in Europe and are active in AI through your publication record, or using other proof of involvement in AI research projects. You need a great idea to do excellent AI research, and have an invitation letter from your hosting lab. The focus lies on connecting TAILOR and non-TAILOR labs. Hence, you should be from a non-TAILOR lab and interested in visiting a TAILOR lab. Or, you should be from a TAILOR lab, and be invited by a non-TAILOR lab. Workshops can be hosted by either TAILOR or non-TAILOR labs, but only non-TAILOR attendants can receive funding.

Research Visits Goals

For research visits, we are looking for visits that help young researchers gain experience and world-wide recognition by working in excellent labs (scientific step-up). Ideally, the visit also brings in expertise from outside the TAILOR network (scientific influx) and/or align different European AI initiatives (scientific alliance).

Workshop Goals

We are looking for workshops that facilitate scientific exchange with the worldwide AI community to tackle big challenges in AI. Alternatively, we welcome workshops aimed at providing a swift and coordinated reaction to unexpected developments, and to build bridges with other European AI initiatives.
