DIAG is the fourth centre IDEAS NCBR has signed the MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) with this year. So far, the declaration of cooperation with the Warsaw research and development centre was signed by CVC in Barcelona, the Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Robotics at the National Taiwan University, and Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica in Amsterdam.
The understanding has been concluded for 4 years. During this time, the centres will focus on conducting joint programs for doctoral students, cooperation in research projects and exchanges for researchers, as well as joint applications for European grants. Research projects will focus on algorithmic foundations of Data Science, AI for security, applications of machine learning in industry, medicine and digital economy.
“We are very glad of starting a tight collaboration with IDEAS NCBR that is emerging as a leading European center of research in AI, algorithms, and security and the application of these key technologies in industry and society. We are very proud to have hosted the President of IDEAS NCBR Piotr Sankowski for his postdoctoral training and we look forward to exchanging more brilliant PhD students and postdoctoral researchers on both sides in the coming 4 years” – explains Stefano Leonardi PhD, Professor at DIAG – Sapienza University of Rome, leader of the Algorithms and Data Science research group.
The visibility of IDEAS NCBR on the international arena is gradually increasing. Apart from signed agreements with foreign research centres and universities, in 2022 five of the scientists working at IDEAS NCBR have also joined ELLIS Society (European Laboratory for Learning and Intelligent Systems). It is European network of researchers with outstanding scientific achievements who focus their work on the most important challenges in basic research and innovation and their impact on society. The members of ELLIS Society are: Tomasz Trzciński Ph.D., Professor at the Warsaw University of Technology and Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Tomasz Michalak Ph.D., Piotr Sankowski Ph.D., Professor at the University of Warsaw, Bartosz Zieliński Ph.D, Piotr Miłoś Ph.D., Professor of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
