Research & Public Administrations

Since 2021, FARI has been working on four concrete pilot projects to address issues faced by the Brussels administration. This includes improving the matching between job offer and demand, automating the control of online selling of animals on the internet, the development of an administrative simplification test, and the development of a regional strategy for the development of artificial intelligence in Brussels. In the future, FARI will also work on providing digital twins and living lab infrastructures to facilitate the development of technologies towards becoming a smart city.
