Background and Content

The subject area of "artificial intelligence" is so large and wide-ranging that it is often not possible for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to exploit the possibilities. This is where KI-Net steps in to support regional companies with advice.

Project Goal

Within the framework of the project, a cross-border competence network consisting of the project partners is to be established with the aim of supporting regional SMEs in research, development and innovation of AI technologies and thus strengthening the economy in the long term.

The project partners develop AI building blocks, which can subsequently be published and used by the target companies. Attention is paid to a modular and complementary design.


The project strengthens SMEs in the use of AI technologies, thus leveling the playing field. AI technologies are no longer the preserve of large companies. The regional economy is strengthened and future-proof jobs are created.
