Becoming a partner in AIKA is free of charge at the moment. Membership agreement (letter of intent) is required for new partners. In cooperation projects the costs depend on the project type, size and the results targeted. Pilot projects can be implemented free of charge or with a small cost for new partners. Joint public funded R&D projects offer an easier and lower-cost way to get acquainted with the domain and partners, but if company specific work and results are needed, we recommend to negotiate a commercial company specific project order.
