Swedish AI Fund (SAIF)
Anyone from anywhere in the world can apply for the fund. It is available regardless of where you live.
The Swedish AI Fund is created to help applicants cover their costs. You will not be able to apply for a research fund but you can cover one or more purchase with this fund to help decrease your research cost.
SAIF’s purpose is to help you cover the cost of purchases regarding AI development. If you are funded by other institutions you need to inform them to make sure it doesn’t interfere with those funds/grants. We at the AI Association are not limiting our applicants to use only this fund as long as the other providers are not limiting you.
