Network of National Centres of Excellence for AI Research

The Network of National Centres of Excellence for AI Research is comprised of six leading research institutions in the field of Artificial Intelligence: BIFOLD, DFKI, MCML, ML2R, ScaDS.AI Dresden/Leipzig and TUE.AI Center. Together, they work towards strengthening Germany as a top-tier location for AI technologies as well as increasing the national and international visibility of German AI research.

The synergies created in the collaboration of the National Centres of Excellence for AI Research are based on the intensive exchange of competencies and research results as well as the implementation of joint activities.

In addition to the cooperation with the French national artificial intelligence research programme, international networking is actively promoted. On the basis of closely connected and cutting-edge research, the Network of National Centres of Excellence for AI Research forms a fundamental pillar for the development of future-oriented AI technologies in Germany.

The Network of National Centres of Excellence for AI Research is formed by the cooperation of the recognized competence centers
