EU Startup Summit
Ms Hajdi Ćenan, the Vice President of CroAI, participated alongside the independent group of startup ecosystem representatives, in presenting the "Action Plan to Make Europe the new Global Powerhouse for Startups" to the European Commission's Commissioner Maria Gabriel.
In June 2020, CroAI submitted a formal opinion on the EU's White paper on AI with the aim to create more space for startups. We continue to be an active contributor of Croatia’s and the EU’s regulatory framework on AI.
EU White Paper on AI → CroAI opinion
We cannot stress enough the necessity of creating more space for entrepreneurship and innovation. That’s why we suggested three measures that we believe will give Europe considerable leverage in global AI R&D:
1. AI sandbox with a Code of Conduct - to support the incubation phase of AI R&D
2. Competitive startup framework at EU level - to keep AI innovation in Europe
3. The State as the first client model - to ignite the EU’s AI ecosystem
Croatian National Plan for AI
CroAI is a member of the Government’s working group for AI with the task to define Croatia’s future national AI strategy.
European AI Alliance
Mr Malenica, the President of CroAI, was invited to participate at the Alliance’s annual summit to talk about our view on EU’s legal framework for AI. The European AI Alliance boasts 4000+ members and feeds into the European Commission's policy-making around AI.
