About the event

Are you ready to revolutionise the future of AI innovation?

The BridgeAI Innovation Labs present a unique opportunity for UK organisations to collaborate on research and development proposals that will shape cutting-edge AI-powered products and services.

Unlock the potential to enhance business productivity in our target sectors: Agri-food, Construction, Creative Industries*, and Transport. Participating cohorts will also have the chance to compete for grant funding to bring their projects to life.

Embrace a design-led approach, think outside the box, and engage with challenge owners to uncover novel solutions in a collaborative environment.

Represent your organisation with a strong collaborative attitude and demonstrate experience in developing and pitching project ideas. Show us how data, artificial intelligence, and machine learning techniques can address real-world problems.

To create diverse consortia and foster cross-disciplinary collaboration, we welcome organisations of all sizes, academic institutions, research and technology organisations, and charities.

At the BridgeAI Residential Innovation Labs, we seek a diverse range of expertise, spanning target sectors, AI developers, digital infrastructure and data owners, and other essential disciplines. Our goal is to foster a rich tapestry of thinking, experience, and expertise, ensuring the inception of ground-breaking solutions and long-term project success.

The 4-day residential lab experience, funded by Innovate UK, includes accommodation, and meals. We are committed to ensuring equitable and equal opportunities for all participants. If you have specific needs or inquiries, please feel free to discuss them with us.
