Brussels - Europe
We aim at developing, understanding, and using state-of-the art technologies.
We ensure ethical applicability, acceptability, and relevance of our projects.
We strive on bridging a gap between the technologies and society.
We are committed to contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Our cutting-edge test and experience infrastructure serves as real-world lab equipment for social, legal, and economic scientists for better user research and idea prototyping.

Learn more about issues and trends on AI, data, and robotics through an ethical and critical approach.
With FARI AI Academy, you will be able to choose from executive education, postgraduate, train the trainers, and other customised programmes that will not only help you understand the increasingly dynamic field of AI, but also will help you analyse and deal with AI challenges with a critical perspective.
We are working closely with the Brussels public administration towards a shared goal to make the region a smart city with sustainable impact on both the level of the local needs and international ambitions.
We will offer key services that will provide support to the civil society, and will engage their participation in both consultation level and design level.
Small and medium-sized enterprises
We intend to set up coaching programs and to support initiatives catering to AI, Data, and Robotics, leading to successful proof of concepts and development of go-to-market strategies.
FARI combines VUB and ULB strengths in multi-disciplinary projects in AI, Data, Robotics, law, and social sciences.
Our research and innovation activities aim at contributing to achieve AI for Common Good through our five targeted research priority areas: Climate & Energy, Resource Optimization, Mobility, Health & Well-Being, and Participatory & Inclusive Society. These are priority areas of innovation identified by the Brussels Region itself.
Resource Optimization, Participatory and Inclusive Society
Employment project: Matching profiles in the job market
The FARI community is composed of 300 researchers from the 10 AI, data, and robotics research groups from VUB and ULB, coordinated by our central team and in close collaboration with our various partners.
We are working to co-create a society where AI, Data, and Robotics could contribute to it. We work on local and international projects that aim at enabling a sustainable transition, starting with our own region of Brussels. So we work in, with and on Brussels as a laboratory and testing ground in a regional, national and International context.
