Helmholtz AI funded projects – what now?



Zoom link in registration mail
Alexander David Coleman (Helmholtz AI)


Helmholtz AI strategically drives and coalesces the field of applied Artificial Intelligence within the Helmholtz Association. As an interdisciplinary platform, Helmholtz AI compiles, develops, fosters, and promotes Artificial Intelligence-based approaches for all Helmholtz Centers.

One essential component of our strategic model is to fund research projects that address the topics of applied Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). These annual calls for projects are based on the general concept for Helmholtz AI and are in line with the future topics of the Initiative and Networking Fund (INF). Successful projects are awarded seed funding for cross-cutting research collaborations and innovative research topics in this area, with the potential to facilitate collaboration in a larger context and over a longer period.

The purpose of this workshop is to present opportunities to build on the initial seed funding awarded to Helmholtz AI projects. We will have talks from 3 experts in different areas, including:

  1. Domestic scale-up funding opportunities
  2. Horizon Europe and other European initiatives
  3. Transfer and entrepreneurship

After the talks, there will also be the opportunity to discuss with the experts in small break-out sessions.We look forward to seeing you there!

Target Audience

All Helmholtz AI project awardees and their collaboration partners across the Helmholtz Association. This workshop may also be of interest for Helmholtz researchers engaged in other parallel funding lines (e.g. Helmholtz Imaging, Helmholtz Metadata, etc.), or researchers planning to submit a project in the near future.
