Team Up - Academic Research & Industry

Team up to improve the use of artificial intelligence ! 

The first edition of the new Innoviris program Team Up will be dedicated to Artificial Intelligence.

At Innoviris, we believe that AI should not just be the playground of GAFA and academic brains. On the contrary, we believe that AI knowledge should flow from academia to the industry and be the source of a wealth of business opportunities in a broad spectrum of sectors: transportation, home/services, healthcare, education, public safety, security.

Are you an entrepreneur or a researcher and do you want to be part of the AI transformation? Submit an expression of interest to participate in the first Team Up project call. 

 

The Team Up program

The objective of Team Up is to foster collaboration between academia and industry in the Brussels-Capital Region. This yearly program (one thematic call per year) involves an active participation of both academic units and industrial teams with an aim of strengthening knowledge, transferring IP from academic research to the industry and turning it into prototypes that will lead to new business opportunities.

Thanks to Team Up, companies will acquire the knowledge they miss, integrate state-of-the-art and academics will find real-world use cases to apply their findings.

 

2017 edition: Artificial Intelligence

The first edition of Team Up will be dedicated to Artificial Intelligence. AI is currently attracting a lot of attention from research communities and leading ICT companies. Thanks to recent breakthroughs in machine learning and cloud computing, the impossible seems possible.

The Brussels Region, through Innoviris, has decided to free up a budget of 4+ Million Euros for the 2017 edition of Team Up dedicated to artificial intelligence. This investment aims at positioning the Region at the forefront of AI both from a research and an industrial point of view.

But, after all, what’s artificial intelligence? Since it appears that each and every AI actor has its own definition, Innoviris has also worked on its own:

“The ability of a system to autonomously learn from data and turn this knowledge into actions and / or recommendations”
