Organizer: HYPEREGIO

DSP Valley and the HYPEREGIO project partners kindly invite you for an upcoming B2B Matchmaking workshop on Artificial Intelligence. Although AI is a very general term and applications are common in different domains, we would like to have this workshop to enable Belgian, Dutch and German companies to get to know each other. Three clusters (REGINA from Aachen, RESEAU AI from Liege and DSP VALLEY) will participate in an attempt to initiate cross-border cooperation in this domain.
