New members

Accession of new members (of any form) to International AI Doctoral Academy (AIDA)

1. Ask your administration to send to Prof. Ioannis Pitas ( a statement on your institution intent to join AIDA by email. If your institution/company is not an ICT48 project partner, please fill and send the ‘AIDA member application template’ as well by email.
2. The next AIDA General Assembly will decide on this and invite you (I see no major issues if your institution has AI activities, particularly if you are ICT48 project partner).
3. You will receive the filled Multiparty AIDA accession Document and the Multiparty AIDA MoU v2.0 to be signed by your legal signatory and countersigned by AUTH.
