Doctoral Colloquia Recap

Last semester, our doctoral candidates participated in a series of enlightening and collaborative colloquia. These gatherings provided an exceptional platform for exchanging cutting-edge research, innovative ideas, and cultivating a strong sense of camaraderie among these budding scholars. We’re thrilled to acknowledge the resounding success of these colloquia, which have been an integral part of the Horizon Europe TERAIS project.

New EU twinning project TERAIS

The three-year Horizon Europe project TERAIS (Towards Excellent Robotics and Artificial Intelligence at a Slovak university) started in October 2022. The coordinator is Comenius University represented by the Department of Applied Informatics FMFI and the consortium partners are the University of Hamburg and the Italian Institute of Technology in Genoa. The main objective of the project with a budget of approximately 1.6 million euro is to create long-term sustainable conditions at the KAI workplace that will improve the level of publishing activity and support the continuous career development of the staff. The planned activities of the project include multi-dimensional cooperation with partners, focusing not only on joint research in the field of cognitive robotics and artificial intelligence, but also on knowledge transfer through various joint activities. One of the objectives of the project is to develop institutional support for research.
