Become a Partner

We work with partners from industry, government, international universities and non-governmental organisations.

Students, academics and industry guests discuss AI challenges

We are always looking to collaborate with partners on research projects, internships, short term placements, training, workshops and/or speaking to our students informally or as part of our regular seminar series.

Benefits to our students of working with partners include:

Creating more transparent and effective AI techniques; understanding the effects of AI innovation on the partner’s organisation or business; and developing regulatory and policy guidance on the uses of AI innovations in real world contexts. In addition to driving research, issues of concern to partners can form the basis of scenarios and use cases in ART-AI’s courses, coursework and cohort workshops.

Benefits for our partners include:

For SMEs there may be a research project that the SME doesn’t have the capacity or staff to deliver. A PhD studentship or internship can be a cost effective way of delivering that project, with the added advantage that the partnership with ART-AI can help find and recruit suitable candidates and provide research capacity, support mechanisms and a wider network of contacts to help deliver it. For larger organisations, a project might be more speculative, blue skies research that the company may not yet be ready to invest heavily in but want to work with an academic research partner as a way of exploring and developing ideas and concepts.

For all partners, ART-AI provides a forum and support to bring people together to identify and address challenges of common interest.

Regardless of the type of collaboration, all our partners benefit from access to students and academics working at the cutting edge of their research across a range of disciplines. The knowledge shared, research co-authored and relationships developed help build the innovation and networks that will underpin the next generation of global AI innovation.
