On the final day of the Croatian Presidency, and as a new Trio takes the Council of the EU helm, EuroNavigator was proud to support Croatian AI Association to organise a virtual European AI Forum, along with its partners Hub France IA and Bundesverband Künstliche Intelligenz.

The EU AI Forum took place under the joint auspices of the outgoing Croatian Council Presidency and the incoming German Presidency over the Council of the EU and was held via the French streaming platform Livestorm to support European digital streaming solutions. The aim of the one-day Forum was to address some of the most prominent questions revolving around artificial intelligence through three panels – economic recovery and the role of AI, Europe’s legislative framework for AI and Europe’s digital infrastructure for AI.

EuroNavigator was responsible for securing the keynote speakers from Croatia and the European Union institutions. We are delighted that the President of the Republic of Croatia, Zoran Milanović opened the forum, followed by messages from Margrethe Vestager, European Commission’s Executive Vice-President, Maroš Šefčovič, European Commission’s Vice-President and that experts such as Anthony Whelan, Digital Adviser at Cabinet of European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, Lucilla Sioli, Director of AI & Digital Industry at DG CONNECT, Mislav Malenica, Founder & CEO at Mindsmiths and Mate Rimac, CEO at Rimac Automobili were able to share their knowledge and expertise.

The first edition of the European AI Forum showed that Croatian experts, in cooperation with European colleagues, can achieve significant success on the European and global scene and that Croatia deserves its place at the top of the European Union when it comes to application and development of artificial intelligence.

The European AI Forum is an event that will be held every 6 months according to the plan and schedule of the EU Council Presidency, and its goal is to create a unique event at the EU level that will bring together representatives of business, government and academia.
