As of 15 September 2020, the Nijmegen ELLIS unit is an official part of the ELLIS ecosystem. ELLIS brings together outstanding academic institutions and aims to create new working environments for outstanding machine learning researchers to enable them to combine cutting-edge research paired with the creation of start-ups and industrial impact. We endorse the mission of ELLIS:
- We want the best basic research to be performed in Europe, to enable Europe to shape how machine learning and modern AI change the world.
- We want to have an economic impact and create jobs in Europe, and believe this is achieved by outstanding and free basic research, independent of industry interests.
Our mission at the Nijmegen ELLIS unit is to advance theoretical and applied research in machine learning and to educate the next generation of machine learning researchers.
