The AI Campus is a joint initiative that creates unique structures for educational innovation at regional, national and European levels. Our work is organised in several projects that strengthen AI and data skills through innovative, digital learning opportunities. Ongoing and completed projects, which are coordinated by the AI Campus office at the Stifterverband, are listed on this page.

AI as a broad competence

KI als Breitenkompetenz

Duration: 2024 - 2030

Project partner: Stifterverband

Funding organisation: Mercedes-Benz Foundation

The co-funding by the Mercedes-Benz Foundation is intended to contribute to the sustainable and long-term broad impact of the AI Campus. The Mercedes-Benz Foundation is thus involved as an anchor partner for the AI Campus 3.0, which will run until 2030. As part of the collaboration, new impulses will be provided in the area of "AI as a broad competence" and learning opportunities and other formats for training and further education on AI will be developed.

AI Campus 2.0

KI-Campus 2.0

Duration: 2023 - 2024

Project partners: Stifterverband, Charité, German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW), FernUniversität in Hagen, Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI), Humboldt University of Berlin, mmb Institute, NEOCOSMO

Funding organisation: Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)

The second funding phase has been running since the beginning of 2023 with an expanded consortium and a focus on strategic partnerships. Central to this is the development and testing of sustainable implementation concepts for the AI Campus with open learning opportunities, communities and technologies for science and practice.

AI Campus Hub Baden-Württemberg

KI-Campus-Hub BW

Duration: 2022 - 2024

Project partners: Stifterverband, Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW), Heilbronn University, Technical University of Munich (TUM), Fraunhofer IAO

Funding organisation: Dieter Schwarz Foundation

The AI Campus Hub Baden-Württemberg is part of an overarching AI ecosystem that is being created with the Innovation Park for Artificial Intelligence (Ipai) in Heilbronn. The hub strengthens Baden-Württemberg as a centre of AI innovation with digital learning opportunities on the topic of artificial intelligence and a wide range of community activities.

AI Campus 1.0

KI-Campus 1.0

Duration: 2019 - 2022

Project partners: Stifterverband, German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI), mmb Institute, NEOCOSMO

Funding organisation: Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)

As a digital learning platform specialising in AI, the AI Campus received initial pilot funding from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) from 2019 to 2022 as part of the German government's AI strategy. The central goal was to develop a prototype of the platform.
