Artificial Intelligence

The figures talk for themselves

130 permanent teaching and research staff

Great business opportunities

Great because there is plenty of use for artificial intelligence in the region’s business and industry leaders.

Great because of the local talent pool working with businesses, universities and labs.

Great because the regional authorities are investing in the healthcare of the future, industry 4.0, smart mobility, smart grids and marine renewable energy.

Great because our regional key-players can manage both hard and soft AI technologies.

Great because our communities have a long history of working together and they take the subject head on: raising awareness, sharing ideas, organising events, working on proof of concept, developing research projects…
