BDVA/DAIRO is organizing a webinar to analyze the challenges that SMEs are facing regarding digital skills and the availability of technological talent.
In 2020 and taking into account the end of the 2014-2020 Multi Annual Financial Framework and the advent of the post 2020 European Commission’s programmes (i.e. Horizon Europe and Digital Europe), BDVA members decided to strengthen the Association by giving it a new mandate, a new name and by expanding its scope and breadth of activities. In 2021, BDVA thus becomes DAIRO.
On the 17th of February, BDVA/DAIRO held a workshop in the area of Trustworthiness for Industrial AI (see further details on the announcement of the workshop here). This online event gathered over 50 members of the community, including large companies, SME’s, researchers, technology providers and users, to discuss research and innovation needs, gaps, opportunities and challenges that Trustworthy AI sets to the industry across sectors. The workshop also focused on mapping concrete examples of critical, high-risk applications that will require trustworthiness conformity assessment.
The 1st SLICES workshop on the Next Generation ICT Research Infrastructures will take place online on Wednesday the 3rd of March in the afternoon and Thursday the 4th of March in the morning.
BDVA/DAIRO President, Thomas Hahn, has been invited to contribute to the discussions and in particular concerning the challenges in the area of Artificial Intelligence and High Performance Computing and will intervene on the second day during the session on socio industrial perspective.
