AI, Data Robotics Association launches

Submitted on Thursday, 25/11/2021

A major partnership – the AI, Data Robotics Association (ADRA) – launches today. Insight’s Dr Ed Curry is a founding board member of ADRA. The partnership is one of the candidates for European Partnerships in digital, industry, and space in Horizon Europe. To deliver the greatest benefit to Europe from AI, Data and Robotics, this Partnership will drive innovation, acceptance and uptake of these technologies.

Dr Curry said, “The partnership is hugely significant. It will boost new markets, applications and attract investment, to create technical, economic and societal value for business, citizens and the environment.”

By 2030, European sovereignty is expected in the development and deployment of trustworthy, safe and robust AI, Data and Robotics, compatible with EU values and regulations.

Both of the Horizon 2020 partnerships, BDVA and euRobotics PPPs (Big Data Value PPP and SPARC PPP), achieved high impact by enhancing cohesion and engagement within the wider Data and Robotics ecosystems and communities. This new Partnership, as described in its proposal application, builds on the work of these current partnerships and on the investment in the broader European AI community crystallised in the formation and existence of EurAI, CLAIRE and ELLIS.

BDVA, CLAIRE, ELLIS, EurAI and euRobotics are joining forces integrating a wide range of stakeholders into the activities of the Partnership so the raised ambition can be realised.
