Agreements and partnerships
The Euromed University of Fez (UEMF) and "Dassault Systèmes", one of the world's leading companies in the field of 3D design software, digital engineering and virtual worlds for innovation, will sign a partnership agreement on 30 April to create the largest university digital engineering platform in Africa at UEMF. This platform will be one of the important tools for the School of Digital Engineering and Artificial Intelligence (EIDIA) which will open its doors at UEMF next September. This new school, totally dedicated to artificial intelligence, will be the first engineering school of its kind in Morocco and also in the Euro-Mediterranean and African space. The school in question will be supported by a high-level research centre using technologies for data generation, cyber security, robotics and cobotics, big data, machine and deep learning, neural networks, blockchains, image, voice and motion recognition. These digital technologies will be exploited for applications in the fields of mobile technologies, medicine, renewable energies, agribusiness, automotive, aeronautics, banking and finance and other industrial sectors (Industry 4.0) using digital technologies and artificial intelligence. An industrial version of Dassault Systèmes will also be implemented later on the UEMF campus.
This centre will operate Dassault Systèmes' "3DEXPERIENCE": a teaching and research-innovation platform that will be open to all students and researchers in the Kingdom and in African countries. It will be connected to the 3D printing platform, already set up at the University, and also to the robotics and cobotics infrastructure of the UEMF.
