EuroTech workshop on the AI Act

The aim of this workshop is to help researchers, legal officers and research ethics experts of EuroTech member universities to better understand the Artificial Intelligence Act – the future law that will regulate AI in the European Union.

The Act will introduce a risk-based approach to AI systems on the principles of ethical AI. Its impact will be widely felt across the economy and in academia as the law creates new regulatory obligations for AI tools used in education, industrial AI, medical devices, the car industry, machinery, financial services, etc. It will apply extraterritorially to any provider or distributor of AI whose services or products reach the EU market.

European Commission’s  Tatjana Evas, Legal and Policy Officer at the Artificial Intelligence Policy Development and Coordination Unit (CNECT.A.2) will present the AI Act to the event participants and answer your questions.

The workshop will take place in the EuroTech Brussels Office in the hybrid mode – online participation is also possible.
