This meeting has been organised to provide useful information about both the AI3SD-FundingCall2 and funding call applications in general. There will be talks from experts in the areas of IP for AI, there will be a top tips for writing your funding application session where we will provide advice on strengthening your applications based on previous experience of reviewing funding applications. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions about our second funding call and to find other people / institutions to collaborate with.  We strongly encourage all interested parties to come along, as we hope that this event will not only answer any questions you have, but offer an opportunity to match up companies with academic institutes for collaboration on projects proposals. All questions and answers will be written up and added to our Funding Call Page as an FAQ.
