On Thursday, 29 February, the Department for Science, Innovation and Technology (DSIT) announced a new partnership to promote global artificial intelligence (AI) research and safety as part of measures announced by the UK and France.

The partnership includes a commitment of £800,000 towards joint research efforts in which both the UK and France are already involved, such as Horizon Europe, with the aim of unlocking more UK-France joint bids for grants to support cutting-edge R&D. A further partnership was announced between the UK AI Safety Institute and the French National Institute for Research in Digital Science and Technology (Inria), to support the safe and responsible development of AI technology. This partnership comes ahead of France hosting the next in-person AI Safety Summit later this year.
