Apply now for free AI Explorer and Quick Checks
The second round of applications is about to begin – are you in?
Are you interested in our core topics AI in Production, AI for Services or Cognitive Robotics and are either still in the orientation phase or already have a concrete application idea? Then apply now for a free AI Explorer or Quick Check.
Compared to the other S-TEC centers, the AI Innovation Center “Learning Systems and Cognitive Robotics” also offers, beyond the project format “Quick Check”, a funded collaboration within the framework of an “AI Explorer”. The registration and implementation of the AI Explorer and Quick Check are free of charge.
You are still in the orientation phase and do not have a concrete idea outline yet? The free AI Explorer project format addresses in particular companies that want to implement AI or cognitive robotics and are interested in a qualified expert opinion. In addition, the project format offers the opportunity to assess your current situation and highlight the potential for process improvements or product and service innovations through AI applications.
All companies with headquarters or at least one branch office in Baden-Württemberg can apply for an AI Explorer. With the application, an outline of the idea must be submitted, which is to be worked on in a center with a suitable thematic focus. There is also the possibility to submit an application together with a supplier or partner, in case of equal interest in the feasibility study. Ideas for possible topic outlines can be found, for example, on the individual center pages.
Let our experts research your project idea for you! The Quick Checks offered by S-TEC provide companies with a low-threshold opportunity for collaboration. As part of the Quick Check, a check is carried out at the respective S-TEC center to determine whether the submitted innovation idea is feasible. After successful completion of this first stage, the project can be continued in an Exploring Project. Within about 3 months, the idea sketch is implemented in an initial concept and possibly also in a prototype.
