The concept of transfer labs, which has been successfully established at DFKI, involves integrating employees from partner organizations into DFKI's research teams. These partners send employees to DFKI to work in the “ecosystem” of the research departments. In DFKI´s protected data room, concrete solutions and products are designed for the partner and developed closely in line with scientific progress. The direct contact with the AI research scene enhances the expertise of the staff. On the other hand, DFKI scientists gain valuable insights into the respective industries and their needs. At the same time, the transfer labs – with support from the DFKI – can be used to recruit new specialists.
