Accelerating Digital Innovation Hubs within the region of PocTep to foster the latest DISRUPTIVE ICT through cross-border Cooperation


AI4EU project (“A European Artificial Intelligence on demand platform and Ecosystem”) aims to make available to users resources based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) that facilitate scientific research and innovation, analyse future research needs in AI and create an observatory of ethics that ensures an AI focused on human being.
CARTIF will participate mainly in the elaboration of the EU Strategic Research Agenda for AI. Specifically CARTIF will collect, analyse and integrate road-mapping activities of important EU initiatives given its membership and active participation in BDVA, EFFRA and euRobotics. In addition, CARTIF will identify opportunity areas and filling technology gaps driven by end-user needs, based on our hands-on experience on real AI applications.


  • Mobilize the entire European AI community to make AI promises real for European Society and Economy.
  • Create a leading collaborative AI European platform to nurture economic growth.


  • Bring all stakeholder together by organizing local community events in different countries.
  • Position the European AI stage as a leader thanks to an AI fully embedded in human values and ethics.
  • Fill important technologies gaps and boots AI innovation, through dedicated research, innovations and scale up start efforts. Reinforce
  • European excellence and leading position worldwide in major AI research and applications domains.

Expected results

  • Build a sustainable Open AI On-Demand-Platform to make available expertise, knowledge, algorithms and tools to all user from all sectors.
  • Draw a strong and comprehensive Strategic Agenda for European AI research based on the community multiple works.
