The focus is on a critical and systematic evaluation and generation of sustainable business opportunities for new, possibly disruptive, actors in Europe’s digital technology markets.

CALL TO REINVENT SPORTS FACILITIES
Giving sport organisations the opportunity to develop and promote new forms of practicing sport
In the past, sport and physical activity in Europe has taken place in the framework of sports clubs and organisations. These traditional structures organise sports practices in accordance with a set of rules. However, nowadays individual needs and preferences regarding sport are evolving rapidly.
As such, the European Commission is holding an open call for new and innovative sports facilities. This preparatory action aims to give the opportunity to sport organisations to develop and promote new forms of practicing sport and physical activity through the adaptation of the infrastructure and/or the offer of sports activities and programmes.
The deadline for this call is 1st July 2020. More information and application links can be found on the European Commission website.
LAUNCH OF DPLOY.AI
Making the implementation of Artificial Intelligence seamless
Companies developing AI technologies rarely achieve a smooth integration of their AI models, despite their investments in artificial intelligence. In addition, legislation and regulations require that predictions of these models are entirely auditable
In response to this problem, the founders of the Belgian scale-up Dataroots, specialised in AI and machine learning, have launched Dploy.ai, a platform that helps efficiently translate successful AI experiments into compliant integrated solutions.
Deploy.ai can be implemented as a platform-as-a-service application in no time to minimise the step between experimentation and ROI. It maps everything using an online dashboard and various modules such as performance monitoring. In this way, the platform ensures fast integration for companies in a compliant, robust and scalable way.
