NAINE Norwegian AI network for Europe


The vision of NAINE is to become a common, open meeting place for all Norwegian actors on AI. This will be obtained through network workshops, information sharing, participation in EU fora and support development AI-strategies. At European level the need for a single body that can consult, cohere and collate the requirements for AI has been identified, and there is an ongoing process of defining a strategic research and innovation agenda for a public-private partnership on AI (the future AI PPP). This PPP will enable the adoption of AI across sectors, mobilise industrial investments in AI, and support the expected AI-driven transformation. The same basic needs apply on a national Norwegian level. There is a lack of one focal point for “everything AI” unifying the many stakeholders ranging from academic institutes to businesses undergoing digitalisation. NAINE will provide such a focal point and become a forum for distribution and sharing of information in addition to serve as a point of contact for RCN and the National Contact Point (NCP), for hearings and calls, and provide experts for European processes. There are three main aims of this initiative: 1. Become a national meeting place for stakeholders within AI 2. Coordinate participation in European for a 3. Provide support for the NCP
