SMERALD project training day in Peniche: Exploring AI tools for European projects

Dear colleagues,

We’re excited to share the highlights of an insightful training day organised by blinc, which took place on 17 June 2024 in the picturesque coastal town of Peniche, Portugal. This event was an important step in our ongoing efforts to improve the digital skills of SMEs across Europe, with a particular focus on the application of AI tools in European projects.

Here are the highlights of the training day:

  1. Introduction to AI tools:

The participants got an introduction to a range of AI tools that are useful for project management, data analysis and strategic planning. These tools have been developed to streamline processes, improve data-driven decision-making and drive innovation in European projects.

  1. Practical applications:

The training addressed practical applications of AI in different project phases, from initial planning and proposal writing to implementation and evaluation. Participants learned how AI can help automate routine tasks, analyse large data sets and generate insights that can inform project strategies.

  1. Practical workshops:

The day included hands-on workshops where participants had the opportunity to experiment with AI tools in a controlled environment. These interactive sessions allowed participants to gain hands-on experience and understand the real-world applications of the technologies discussed.

This training day in Peniche was a great example of our commitment to helping SMEs get the digital tools and knowledge they need to succeed in the modern business world. We’re sure the participants and their businesses will benefit a lot from the skills and knowledge gained.

We’re looking forward to organising more events like this in the future as part of the SMERALD project. Stay tuned for more updates!
