Short description: The science is clear: Artificial intelligence (AI) will be the decisive development of the 21st century. Experts estimate that due to the rise of artificial intelligence within just 2 decades, aspects of everyday human life will be unrecognizable. The impact of AI will soon call into question the very organizational principles of our economic and social order. It can create unprecedented wealth, revolutionize medicine and education, but it can bring existential dangers to life as we know it. The aim of the AI4VET4AI is to contribute to the digital transformation of the EU labor market by adding new innovative teaching content and methods to VET curricula to support the growth of skilled workers with Artificial Intelligence. We start from the ground up: we explore the most powerful Sectors for the deployment of AI in our project regions, and for these sectors, in close cooperation with companies and their cluster organizations, we create teaching materials that can be easily implemented in vocational education and training programs. We organize innovative vocational education and training campuses and Artificial Intelligence incubators for VET innovation where students hone their creative and entrepreneurial skills. We use project activities to closely connect partners and to raise awareness of the potential of AI in our regions among representatives of the public and private sectors, as well as civil society.

Short description: To provide our children with the skills and tools to succeed in their own time and in their own lives, one of the key, if not the crucial skill, is the ability to understand the digital world. For this, we need strong, modern approaches to teaching computer science. DIGITAL FIRST is exactly that – an attempt to come up with a new, innovative pedagogical approach to informatics, which respects the fact that the children we teach are born in the digital world, they do not know otherwise: digital is the language they speak, they currency they exchange. We argue that children of the 21st century often speak a digital language more fluently than their mother tongue. And just as in language acquisition, native speakers learn how to express meaning in a sentence (function) rather than how to conjugate verbs (structure), we argue that the same principle should be applied to teaching informatics for digital natives. DIGITAL FIRST will form a European network, animated through a series of club dialogues, in which a functional approach to teaching informatics will be co-created and jointly designed. Piloted in 10 EU countries, we believe this high-quality inclusive teaching and assessment method will help our children become active, responsible and ethically digital EU citizens.

  • Lean Startup Croatia (LSC)
  • University of Montenegro

Short description: The integration of AI into medicine is a promising development that could change the way patients receive quality care, while reducing costs for service providers and improving health outcomes. To turn this potential into reality, we need to work to eliminate the skills shortage: 14 million healthcare professionals in the EU need to become much more aware of the pitfalls and promises of AI to help build the trust of care providers and caregivers with AI-based solutions. At the same time, data scientists who train algorithms for medical purposes rarely receive sectoral specialization; although this could have fewer consequences for AI tools in agriculture, in medicine when solutions are flawed, it ends with death. AI2MED is an alliance with the aim of responding to this challenge. We bring together highly motivated higher education institutions, vocational education and training providers, companies and research institutions from Ireland, Germany, Italy, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia and Montenegro. We propose jointly creating cross-cutting and interdisciplinary teaching and training courses to help medical and data science professionals gain what we call AI-related skills in MED. To put healthcare professionals at the forefront of AI innovation in medicine, we will launch incubation labs – space for all sides of the knowledge triangle to come together and induce innovation in healthcare using the latest technology tools. AI2MED is a step in the direction of increasing the accuracy, effectiveness and availability of healthcare to all.
