Pre-announcement: Responsible Use of Artificial Intelligence call

20 June 2019

The Dutch Research Council (formerly known as: Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research/NWO) and the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy have jointly earmarked €2.3 million for public-private Artificial Intelligence (AI) research projects. The research programme will focus on major AI issues in Dutch society and the Dutch economy. This call will be open for application at the beginning of July.

The grant is intended for research into the responsible use of AI technology. The IPN Special Interest Group AI has drawn up a manifest of fields of research that involve AI technology (AI foundations) and its responsible use (multidisciplinary disciplines). The programme provides grants for research at the interface of these foundations and disciplines.

The field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is developing rapidly and involves numerous technological, social, economic and cultural issues. What will define our social interaction in the future? How transparent should AI systems be? Which choices can we entrust to AI technology and which not? How can we ensure that AI technology is used responsibly?

Research projects can apply for individual grants of between €0.2 and 0.5 million. Each applicant must raise a minimum of 20% of the research budget through private co-financing and at least half of this amount must be provided in cash. The deadline for submissions is 5 November 2019 at 2.00 p.m. CE(S)T. More information about this call for proposals will follow shortly.
