First steps of the Erasmus+ ‘TSAAI’ project, which integrates seven international partners.

The Erasmus + ‘TSAAI’ project -Transversal Skills on Applied Artificial Intelligence- begins to take their first steps. This project fosters to strengthen transversal skills in applied artificial intelligence (AI) in the field of higher education, is coordinated by the University of Malaga, and integrates seven international partners,

With the participation of six European universities, selected as leaders in the research and development of applied AI in their respective countries -Germany, Croatia, Slovenia, Spain, Estonia and North Macedonia-, through this project a portal will be designed of teaching to bring artificial intelligence closer to non-specialized citizens, with a special focus on higher education students.

The international universities that belong to ‘TSAAI’ are: ‘Offenburg University of Applied Sciences’ (Germany), ‘Jožef Stefan Institute’ and ‘Jožef Stefan International Postgraduate School’ (Slovenia), ‘International Balkan University’ (North Macedonia ), ‘Tallinn University of Technology’ (Estonia) and ‘University of Rijeka’ (Croatia).

Internationalization of education.

The result will be FUTURIA, implemented during a period of three years and granted with more than 370,000 euros by the European Commission.

The goal of this initiative is fostering learning in applied Artificial Intelligence skills through transversal and inclusive content, which is committed to the internationalization of education.

Francisco López Valverde, one of the promoters of this project and researcher from the Department of Languages ​​and Computer Sciences of the UMA explains it:

We seek to cover the gaps that exist in the training on artificial intelligence in university students throughout Europe, given an already existing demand for professionals and that will continue to increase in the next decade.

First intellectual products.

After the first face-to-face meeting of the scientific team, made up of 28 members including teachers and technicians from multidisciplinary areas, was held last May, a new follow-up meeting took place this week, this time virtually.

The creation of a multilingual web page that integrates the platform, on the one hand, and the development of the course curricula, on the other, will be the first two intellectual products to be launched. The website is scheduled to be open by the end of 2022.
