In Europe, any successful strategy dealing with AI needs to be cross-border. A large number of Member States agreed to work together on the opportunities and challenges brought by AI. That is excellent news. Cooperation will focus on reinforcing European AI research centres, creating synergies in R&D&I funding schemes across Europe, and exchanging views on the impact of AI on society and the economy.

Coordinated Action Plan
The European Commission, together with Member States, published their coordinated action plan in December 2018.
Read the Action Plan
The main aim is to maximise the impact of investment at the EU and national levels, encourage cooperation across the EU, exchange best practices, and support the EU's global competitiveness in this sector.
The plan should last until 2027, i.e. the remaining time under the current financing framework and the entire period of the next Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027 to support better European and national strategies.
