VAIA wants to encourage you to learn about and apply artificial intelligence. We are the gateway to an accessible, flexible and targeted range of training courses. We help organisations that teach about AI to reach their audience and to develop and organise (new) training opportunities.

Six recommendations for targeted education for professionals

How do we make Flemish SMEs enthusiastic about AI innovation when a recent survey shows us that barely 23% of smaller Flemish SMEs have started to dip their toes in AI?

VAIA organized a survey among professionals and combined it with our own expertise to formulate 6 straightforward recommendations to improve education on AI for professionals.

From medical staff to marketeers, nearly all existing professions are being impacted by AI. VAIA was founded by the Flemish Government to prepare and support the Flemish workforce for these transformations. We want to ensure that the Flemish don’t ‘simply’ undergo this new development, but face it in an informed and expert manner.
