Analytic Imaging Diagnostics Arena, AIDA

AIDA is a Swedish arena for research and innovation on artificial intelligence, AI, for medical image analysis. Here, academia, healthcare and industry meet to translate technical advances in AI technology into patient benefit in the form of clinically useful tools. AIDA is an initiative within the Strategic innovation program Medtech4Health, jointly supported by VINNOVA, Formas and the Swedish Energy Agency.

Opportunities for Funding

Several support opportunities are available for efforts within the AIDA area. Both in the form of funding and as unique prerequisites for method and knowledge development. AIDA is now accepting applications for new innovation projects with a time span of up to two years,  Apply for Innovation Projects. Care provider employees can engage in AI competence development in the form of a fellowship project, Apply for Clinical Fellowship. A fellowship is also possible for professionals on the technical side, Apply for Technical Fellowship.

AIDA has also opened a new project form focused on clinical evaluation of AI. The idea is to help Swedish healthcare organizations to connect with AI vendors to evaluate commercially available AI solutions within medical image diagnostics: Apply for Clinical Evaluation.
