[Research project] The FINALITY project is the winner of the Doctoral Network of the MariE Skłodowska-Curie programme (Horizon Europe)

We are delighted to announce that the FINALITY (saFe learnINg for LArge scaLe InTerconnected sYstems)supported by Francesco De Pellegrini (Avignon Computer Laboratory) was recently funded under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie 2023 (Horizon Europe) programme's call for projects for doctoral networks.

The European Commission gave the project an excellent score of 98.4 %, based on three criteria: excellence, impact and implementation. The total budget for the project is €4,027,672.80 over four years.

Within this framework, Avignon Université is leading a consortium of seven partners and nine associate partners, which will be coordinated by Francesco De Pellegrini of the Avignon Computer Laboratory (LIA). The PhD network, made up of a total of 15 PhD students, will develop and integrate innovative tools for AI-based resource allocation, focusing on large-scale critical communication and computing infrastructures. The PhD students will work on creating and experimenting with AI methods that prioritise safety, fairness and efficiency.

The FINALITY doctoral team will be supervised by a diverse group of directors and supervisors, including experts from higher education and research (Inria, Imdea, Technical University of Delft, KTH, Cyprus Institute, Avignon University and Polytechnic University of Navarre) and industry (Orange, Nokia, Telefonica, Ericsson, Safran and Satec). In addition, a committee of international experts will extend the cooperation and dissemination of the project beyond the European partnership.

The Doctoral Network of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme

The aim of doctoral networks is to implement doctoral programmes through partnerships between organisations from different sectors across Europe and beyond, in order to train highly qualified doctoral students, stimulate their creativity, strengthen their capacity for innovation and enhance their long-term employability.
