EMILDAI has been developed as a response to the legal, technical and ethical challenges of digitisation. Businesses and public institutions require experts to legally, ethically and safely process data, in particular in the context of the use of AI systems. EMILDAI aims to educate the leaders who will achieve the goals of the EU Digital Compass. Through a two-year fully integrated study curriculum, including up to three mobility periods, work placements, language courses, summer schools and networking opportunities, EMILDAI will produce legal and technical professionals with a solid expertise in data protection, data governance, cybersecurity, AI law and ethics.

EMILDAI aims to attract talents from all over the world, with particular attention to aspects of equality, diversity and inclusion. One of the EMILDAI’s key missions is to enhance the level of internationalisation of its partner institutions.

The internationalisation of students is an essential element to foster excellence in teaching and learning. A more diverse learning experience will generate experts with an awareness of global issues and multicultural skills. The partner universities consider internationalisation within higher education as a methodology to prepare students to be competent to undertake complex international assignments, through intercultural understanding.

The EMILDAI programme offers two study streams, law and computing, depending on the background of the students, and also provides two study tracks, allowing students to specialise in either data governance or cybersecurity.
