CAIR ARENA – Supporting Value Creation and Innovation
Supporting value creation and innovation in the private and public sectors, we’re launching CAIR Arena; a parallel track in our new House of CAIR, proposing three levels of collaboration.
- Bronze partner: Share data and cases, deliver bachelor and master projects.
- Silver partner: Conduct groundbreaking research, fund industrial PhDs, take the lead by advancing the research frontier.
- Gold partner: Get full access and ownership to House of CAIR’s computational infrastructure. (Terms and conditions for Gold partners negotiated on a case-by-case basis)
CAIR EDUCATION – Enhancing AI Competence
Hosted by the ICT department, our first 5-year specialization track in Artificial Intelligence (master’s program) is currently under construction. Collaborating with the Mechatronics Innovation Lab, we’ll offer courses and certificates available to companies and organizations.
