Program for Development of Projects in the Field of Artificial Intelligence

The Program for Development of Projects in the Field of Artificial Intelligence is implemented under two sub-programs, one intended for fundamental and the other for applied research in the field of artificial intelligence.

The Program aims to enhance excellence and relevance of the scientific research in the domain of artificial intelligence in the Republic of Serbia, as well as to support implementation of the scientific results in economic development of the Republic of Serbia, enhancement of human resources development and improvement of international development in the field of artificial intelligence.

The main thematic areas of the Program: General artificial intelligence, Machine learning, Natural language processing, Planning, Knowledge reasoning, Computer vision and speech communication and Intelligent systems.

12 research projects for the development of artificial intelligence were approved for funding.

Six applied research projects were selected, which will provide a concrete contribution to the development of agriculture, information technology, energy, modern industry, environmental protection. Also, six basic research projects were selected, which should contribute to the development of science. Projects were implemented during the period 2020-2022.

Total approved budget of the Program: EUR 2,207,774.08.

Maximum budget per project: up to EUR 200,000.00.

Project duration: 24 months.

Approved projects can be found on the following LINK.

Program Status: Final reporting on the program is in progress.

Financing for the Program is provided through the budget of the Republic of Serbia (Ministry of Science, Technological Development and Innovation).
