In 2020 and taking into account the end of the 2014-2020 Multi Annual Financial Framework and the advent of the post 2020 European Commission’s programmes (i.e. Horizon Europe and Digital Europe), BDVA members decided to strengthen the Association by giving it a new mandate, a new name and by expanding its scope and breadth of activities. In 2021, BDVA thus becomes DAIRO.
On the 17th of February, BDVA/DAIRO held a workshop in the area of Trustworthiness for Industrial AI (see further details on the announcement of the workshop here). This online event gathered over 50 members of the community, including large companies, SME’s, researchers, technology providers and users, to discuss research and innovation needs, gaps, opportunities and challenges that Trustworthy AI sets to the industry across sectors.
