AI already has and will have even more profound and deep economic and societal impacts on the global scale. Machine learning systems are already successfully deployed in a range of applications, from car driver assistance to language translation and in fields from climate science to drug development. Further advances in AI have the potential to transform economies and society, but also bring new risks.ELISE has produced a Strategic Research Agenda (SRA), outlining the consortium’s vision for the next generation of AI for Europe - trustworthy AI technologies that can boost economic growth while effectively serving the diverse European society. The SRA also outlines how technological advances can contribute to European policy ambitions for AI, as well as the support needed to maintain European leadership in AI.
The SRA aims to answer to the demand for AI to be developed and implemented in ways that ensure it respects applicable laws, upholds ethical principles and values, and takes into account the changing demands of both the technical and social environment. The ELISE approach combines the technical advances coming from ELISE and ELLIS research programmes
with five cross-cutting themes that connect these programmes to wider scientific or social issues. These themes cover:
■ Security and privacy;
■ Explainable and transparent AI;
■ Trustworthiness and AI certification;
■ AI integration across systems;
■ AI ethics and societal impact.
Together, these lay the foundation for a new generation of AI methods and applications that benefit all in society.

ELLIS & ELISE Research programs
To achieve the vision set in the SRA, ELISE supports ELLIS research programmes
- a European network of top researchers working at locations throughout Europe. Directed by outstanding European researchers, Research Programms focus on high-impact problem areas that have the potential to move the needle in modern AI. The programs aim to increase the power of today’s AI methods and promote their deployment in areas that can boost economic growth and societal wellbeing. Together, these research programmes map out a pathway to achieving trustworthy AI – AI that reflects European values and benefits all in society.Implementing the Strategic Research Agenda: research programmes
