ENFIELD will create a unique European Centre of Excellence that excels the fundamental research in the scientific pillars of Adaptive, Green, Human-Centric, and Trustworthy AI that are new, strategic and of paramount importance to successful AI development, deployment, and acceptance in Europe and will further advance the research within verticals of healthcare, energy, manufacturing and space by attracting the best talents, technologies and resources from world-class research and industry players in Europe and by carrying out top-level research activities in synchronisation with industry challenges to reinforce a competitive EU position in AI and create significant socio-economic impact for the benefit of European citizens and businesses.
ENFIELD will develop, maintain, scale-up and sustain a vibrant European network on AI composed of 30 consortium members from 18 countries, including top-level education and research organizations, large scale businesses, SMEs, and public sector representatives jointly addressing critical issues of research and innovation frontiers in this new topic of the European AI Lighthouse.
ENFIELD will provide high impact outputs such as unique AI solutions (algorithms, methods, simulations, services, data sets and prototypes), scientific high-impact publications and peer reviewed presentations, four strategic documents, namely the Common Research Roadmap and Vision, the dynamic Safety and Security Risk Assessment Framework, the White Paper and the Gender and Ethics Framework.
The exchange and innovation schemes planned in Open Calls, which will grant financial support to individual researchers and small-scale projects, education, and training activities such as summer schools and hackathons, and a set of well-designed outreach methods and activities will further contribute to the ENFIELD community engagement, enlargement, and continuity.
The project consisting of 30 partners received more than 11M€ funding from the European Commission under the Horizon Europe programme. MAGGIOLI is actively participating in the research excellence and societal relevance of AI and is leading the work related to Exploitation activities and network building which includes support innovation coming out of ENFIELD activities, contribution to the policy development at the European level and contribution to standardization, certification, and regulation, such as the Artificial Intelligence Act and coordination with major EU ecosystems and marketplaces that support AI innovation and exploitation.
MAGGIOLI is also leading the engagement with European Digital Innovation Hubs (EDIHs) and incubators and synergies with regional national and European projects and initiatives, which will open up a dialog along all Europe with major stakeholders.
