On 30 and 31 October 2023, the inaugural meeting of the AMBITIOUS project took place in the oldest capital of Europe: Athens, Greece. On this occasion, more than 40 dedicated representatives of the eighteen partners of the consortium gathered at the headquarters of the Hellenic Telecommunications Organisation (OTE) to mark the beginning of an AMBITIOUS project that aims to advance the state of the art in the fields of Artificial Intelligence (AI), 5G and Internet of Things (IoT).
One of the features of the AMBITIOUS project is the promotion of interregional cooperation. By bringing together partners from different backgrounds and geographical locations, the consortium aims to create a melting pot of ideas, expertise and perspectives. The kick-off meeting in Athens served as a catalyst for this co-operative spirit. Delegates exchanged insights, harmonised their strategies and laid the foundations for an efficient working relationship.
At the centre of this initiative is the goal of advancing the state of the art in AI, 5G and IoT. The project aims to push the boundaries of innovation and drive progress in sectors identified as strategically important in the smart specialisation priorities of the participating regions, such as information and communication technology (ICT), environment, agriculture and health.
Beyond technological innovation, the project has a strong focus on commercialisation. The consortium has recognised the importance of translating cutting-edge research into tangible solutions that can benefit small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and society as a whole. It aims to bridge the gap between innovation and marketability and thus contribute to the economic growth of the participating regions.
The kick-off meeting in Athens was a testament to the enthusiasm and commitment of the consortium. On the agenda were discussions about the project timeline, potential challenges and the planned activities during the project period. The work packages were outlined in detail, with a particular focus on the tasks to be carried out in the coming months. The partners are prepared to develop digital solutions for the 5G era!
