Kozminski University leads European consortium in innovative AI education project funded by the EU


The project proposal submitted by the EUonAIR alliance of European universities, coordinated by researchers from Kozminski University – Prof. Aleksandra Przegalińska and Prof. Izabela Grabowska – received the high rating from the European Commission under the "European Universities 2024 Erasmus+" initiative. The project, set to begin in January 2025 and last for 48 months, aims to enhance education through artificial intelligence across Europe, engage university cities in a smart way and strengthen the power of international mobility, with special focus on return mobility. 

The EUonAIR consortium will undertake a unique project introducing AI into education and university management across Europe. The goal is to develop the virtual campus MyAI and create innovative solutions to promote AI-based education and support open research and innovation. The project also includes collaboration with cities for smart and green solutions and raising awareness about AI and education. It holds significant academic, national, and international importance. 

The EUonAIR consortium comprises 10 partners and 5 associate members from various countries, including Poland, Germany, Croatia, Spain, Lithuania, France, Luxembourg, Greece, Ukraine, Switzerland, Estonia, and Italy. Among them are institutions like The Zagreb School of Economics and Management (ZSEM), The Polish Japanese Academy of Information Technology, HTW Berlin, ISM Lithuania, CEU Abat Oliba in Barcelona, Luxembourg School of Business ASBL, SUPSI, in Lugano, Switzerland, with its prestigious AI research institute IDSIA, and Hochschule Heilbronn, home to the largest AI center in Europe. The project, valued at EUR 14,400,000, will support education, research, and mobility (including return migration to Ukraine and post-Brexit migration). The funding granted matches the requested grant amount. 

The project was highly praised by the European Commission, which recognized the potential for creating a new type of university, implementing AI processes in higher education inclusively and ethically, and addressing the skills gap necessary for Europe's green and digital transformation. 

The "European Universities 2024 Erasmus+" initiative is an ambitious European Union effort aimed at establishing alliances between higher education institutions, benefiting students, staff, and society. By developing long-term structural, strategic, and sustainable cooperation within European alliances, the initiative seeks to improve the international competitiveness of higher education in Europe and promote European values and identity.
