ARISA fast-tracks the upskilling and reskilling of employees, job seekers, business leaders, and policymakers into AI-related professions to open Europe to new business opportunities. It is a four-year transnational project funded under the Erasmus+ programme.
ARISA, the project
ARISA provides AI knowledge and skills helping people understand and use AI technology in business and policy contexts, taking into account privacy, bias, and trust.
It focuses on current and emerging professional roles across four occupational domains — business leaders, technology leaders, technology practitioners, and policymakers.
ARISA aims to create solid and sustainable foundations for reducing skills shortages, gaps, and mismatches. The first step is to develop an AI Skills Strategy for Europe based on the new skills requirements for people in AI-related professions. And in turn, deliver ARISA curricula and learning programmes to offer sufficient knowledge and skills on AI.
ARISA regroups leading ICT representative bodies, education and training providers, qualification regulatory bodies, and a broad selection of stakeholders and social partners across the industry.
A step-by-step approach
Today in the European Union, only 8% of enterprises are using an AI technology (DESI 2022). Research shows that the lack of skills is the biggest barrier to AI adoption within organisations.
The project ARISA will fast-track the upskilling and reskilling of employees, job seekers, business leaders, and policymakers into AI-related professions to open Europe to new business opportunities.
