24 April 2024

On 28 March, the European University Association’s new Task and Finish Group on Artificial Intelligence held its first meeting in Brussels.

Universities are moving towards a more institutional and strategic approach to artificial intelligence, with AI ethics firmly at the top of the agenda. Going forward, the group will provide guidance to EUA on the development of activities and resources regarding artificial intelligence, as well as contributing to shaping the views EUA puts forward in policy-level discussions.
