KENNETH BRINCAT

Addressing an event where twelve students have won scholarships to continue their postgraduate studies in the field of Artificial Intelligence, Malta Digital Innovation Authority CEO Kenneth Brincat reflected on how such programmes reflect the needs of this continuously changing world.

“These scholarships reflect the synergy with today’s day and age. The world is continuously evolving, and there is the need that the present industry, and even the future one, is equipped with a skilled workforce.”

He continued: “We work in a sector which changed the world, and it is crucial that we adapt to satisfy the demand. This poses a big challenge not only to the industry that we work within, not only to Malta, but the whole world.”

Twelve students have won scholarships amounting to a total of €120,000 to continue their postgraduate studies in the field of Artificial Intelligence. The fund is through the Pathfinder fund, which is administered by the Malta Digital Innovation Authority.

During the presentation of the scholarships, the Minister for the Economy and Industry Silvio Schembri announced that while the first call made in 2020 was limited to the University of Malta, the call for this year has been extensively expanded.

Therefore, applications have been received from students who will continue their studies with other educational institutions, including those abroad. In fact, five of the students are pursuing their studies on a full-time basis overseas, in Sweden, America and the Netherlands.
