HELMHOLTZ AI PROJECTS (ANNUAL CALL)

One essential component of our model is to initiate cross-cutting research collaborations and identify forward-looking research topics in applied ML and AI. That is why we will provide competitive funding to address mid and long-term questions in the form of annual calls for Helmholtz AI projects. They underpin the growth and strength of our network within and beyond the Helmholtz Association.

Goals

  • Exploit machine learning/AI methods in applicants’ research field
  • Foster interaction and method transfer between application and research fields

Characteristics

  • Collaborative: > two centers, balanced (one leads/coordinates)
  • Eligibility: all researchers in Helmholtz Association
  • Budget: €400k (€200k from INF, €200k matched)
  • Duration: 2-3 years
  • Limitation: no data collection/validation
  • High-risk/high-gain and novel ideas encouraged
