International cooperation will be fundamental for bringing Norwegian AI research to the forefront and making NORA partners’ research internationally visible. The key to success for Norwegian research lies in strategic collaboration with like-minded partners both in the Nordic countries, and active participation in the Horizon Europe framework, both of which NORA plays an important role in.
One example of such cooperation is the conference Nordic AI Meet. With the sup port of the Research Council of Norway, NORA organised the first Nordic AI Meet in 2021 and will organise this conference annually until 2025. The conference pre sents an excellent opportunity for NORA to bring together the top Nordic partners in the field of AI. NORA achieved great success in the first conference by establishing programmes and organising committees for the Nordic AI Meet which integrated the top players from the region, such as:
- WASP, Sweden
- AI Sweden
- Pioneer Center, Denmark
- Science AI Center, Denmark
- Finnish Center on Artificial Intelligence
- Icelandic Institute for Intelligent Machines
