AI Lund thematic forums for Profile Area at Lund University in AI and Digitalisation #2
AI Lund invites LU researchers to discuss and develop suggestions for profile areas at Lund University in the area of AI and Digitalisation at Lund University.
At Lund University there is an ongoing work to try to identify so called profile areas at Lund University. More information about this can be found at the blog called “Identifying Profile Areas at Lund University", which has been set up at:

Brief summary and background
Lund University is now beginning the process of identifying profile areas. The aim is to find five very strong areas that include research, education and external engagement. The University Management sees opportunities for Lund University to obtain a considerable share of the government’s planned investment in profile areas totalling SEK 500 million. This will probably mean 5-20 million SEK per year per profile area in government funding and perhaps co-funding from Lund University on a similar scale.
AI Lund has been asked to help out with this process by organising thematic forums in the domain of AI and digitalisation. For this purpose we have booked two dates in January, i.e.
- January 17, 10-13
- January 31, 10-13
Location: Af-borgen, Sandgatan 2, Lund - or online
There are already many ideas and suggestions for such profile areas in different areas related AI and digitalisation.
At the forum there will be an opportunity to
- Present existing ideas for profile areas
- Brainstorm new ideas
- Participate in open discussions
- Identify partners/principal investigators
We will probably identify more interesting areas than those that finally will become one of those five areas at Lund University. We hope to document them as well. These could still be good starting points for future research applications.
The meetings will, if covid allows, take place at AF, but otherwise on zoom.
