Last Tuesday, the online event on “Best practices in AI & Funding opportunities” took place. The event was a cooperation between the European Digital Innovation Hubs (EDIHs) of the regions Catalonia, Baden-Würtemberg, East Cohesion Slovenia and East Netherlands.

This session, with over 160 participants from the different regions, provided the participants with inspiring examples of companies that implemented AI in their business processes. From the East Netherlands, Machine2Learn and Armac (together with Radboud University) presented their case. Both companies are working AI implementation by making use of the cascade funding opportunities of AI Regio.

The AIRegio funding allows for Machine2Learn to integrate the solar panel inspection box within the production line of Exasun. AI Regio also funded collaboration between Armac B.V. and the Analytical Chemistry & Chemometrics department of Radboud University. This experiment demonstrates the implementation of AI in optimizing heat demand in district heating system by integrating historical data, physics, and process expert information.

Also, the EDIHs of the regions were presented, focused around how companies can be helped in their digitalization processes. One of the support that the EDIHs provide, is about the European funding opportunities that companies can make use of. For this matter, both Horizon opportunities as well as cascade funding options were enlightened.
