Program overview

Each cohort consists of 4-8 AI talents, working at the participating organizations in pairs. One of the unique core elements is that the talents rotate and spend 6 months at each of the participating organizations, for a total of 12-24 months. This enables cross-disciplinary knowledge transfer with each rotation, both for the talents and the participating organizations. 

Each week, the talents will spend one day at AI Sweden in addition to the time with the participating partner organizations. This allows them to build their AI skills and feed back new expertise to partners while becoming an integrated part of the Swedish AI community. The talents will work on exciting projects at each participating organization that fit the talents’ profiles and add value to the organization. 

By identifying exciting and relevant AI-related projects that bring value to both the talent and the organization, participating organizations will get access to highly in-demand, international AI talent.
