With the start of the AI Labs, Utrecht University aims to provide external parties and sectors with the means to address their (societal) challenges through AI and Data Science research and techniques, and to collaborate with interdisciplinary science teams at Utrecht University.

The Faculties of Science, Geosciences and Humanities have allocated funds to encourage researchers at Utrecht University to collaborate with each other and to attract funding from external parties. For this purpose, they have identified three new domains where interdisciplinary collaboration can be started in AI Labs: AI & Sustainability, AI & Life Sciences, and AI & Digital Humanities.

The three new labs are open to researchers from Utrecht University that have concrete plans to collaborate with external parties on any of the labs-themes. We would like to invite you to send us your inter- and transdisciplinary project ideas that could fit within one of these labs.
