Council of Tampere Region (Pirkanmaan liitto) wants to improve the overall competitiveness of local SMEs by increasing their AI-savviness and encourages them to implement concrete AI pilots and solutions.
DIMECC has established a local AI accelerator (AI-heräämö) that aims at de-mystifying AI. AI-heräämö offers AI-related training and information to companies as well as support for their AI and Machine Learning projects. AI-heräämö’s first events were organized in Kangasala and Sastamala, and next event takes place in Valkeakoski (8 October). More information and registration (in Finnish) of the event here.
AI-heräämö focuses on supplier and service SMEs as increasing their expertise in this area will help a larger number of companies. SMEs can also apply for funding for their pilots from Pirkanmaa s Centre for Economic development, Transport and the Environment (i.e. ELY-keskus).
