AI Bulgaria Meets AI Austria

3 July, 2020

The first online meeting dedicated to the cooperation in the AI field between Bulgaria and Austria took place on June 25. Participants from AI Austria, Urban Innovation Vienna, AI Cluster Bulgaria, Innovative Sofia, Sofia Tech Park, GATE, as well as companies and specialists in the field of artificial intelligence joined the meeting.

Nadia Soultanova, Director “Digitalization, Innovation and Investments” at Innovative Sofia, participated in the meeting at the invitation of AI Cluster Bulgaria. She presented the Digital Strategy of Sofia and Sofia Municipality’s upcoming projects related to using open data to back up decisions and policy design. 

We believe that this first meeting will strengthen the partnership between the AI ecosystems in Bulgaria and Austria. We also believe that ahead of us are projects of practical support, and exchange of good practices regarding European National AI strategies, the ethics of artificial intelligence, the opportunities for collaborative projects and cross-industrial solutions in biotechnology, cybersecurity, and more.

By the end of the year, AI Cluster Bulgaria plans to attract all AI organisations in Europe for a meeting/conference with the goal to create a strong European AI Cluster Network and a White Paper of Recommendation for future policies.
