In Horizon 2020, the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme, ICT49 was the call on Artificial Intelligence on demand platform.

In the H2020-ICT-2018-20 call “Information and Communication Technologies” the project “A European AI On Demand Platform and Ecosystem (AI4EU)” was funded. The ultimate goal of this project was a European AI-on-demand platform mobilising the European AI community to support businesses and sectors in accessing expertise, knowledge, algorithms and tools to successfully apply AI thereby generating market impact.

The ICT49 projects build on the AI-on-demand-platform AI4EU and aim to facilitate the integration of AI into applications and to consolidate the ecosystem by bringing in a larger user community and by reinforcing the service layer of the platform to ensure it is a compelling solution for users, especially from non-tech sectors. The ICT49 projects contribute to the platform by providing  AI-related knowledge, algorithms, tools, access to related infrastructures, equipment, data resources and expert support. 

In addition to StairwAI there are five more related ICT49 projects.
