Industrial Talk Abstract

Mining for Learning in European Research

Walter Van de Velde, European Commission
Session: Industrial Session 3

The European Commission is funding research in Information and Communication Technologies, within which research on Machine Learning/Adaptation/Mining/Discovery should be able to find a natural place. In spite of the fact that this represents but a small fraction of research funding in Europe, it allows for setting up collaborations that would be otherwise difficult to realise. But, what are the expectations, from both sides? What are the difficulties? Why does it seem so hard to get a proposal funded? Is the simple possible? Let's talk about it!
