What are EUREKA Clusters
Industry driven public-private partnerships, which build communities and convene projects between SMEs and large industry in specific technology and market areas.
The Eureka Clusters CELTIC-NEXT, EURIPIDES²-PENTA, EUROGIA, and ITEA3, have identified a common cross domain interest in developing, adapting and utilising emerging Artificial Intelligence within and across their focus areas. These Clusters, together with a number of Eureka Public Authorities, are now launching a Call for innovative projects in the area of AI or Artificial Intelligence.
The Eureka Clusters AI Call is specifically designed to stimulate activity in AI, through the creation of trans-national collaborative projects in applications that will support economic growth and benefit society as a whole.
