KI.NRW Artificial Intelligence Competence Platform Back to Exhibitor Page


In order to bundle and further strengthen the activities in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) in the field of artificial intelligence, the federal state established KI.NRW in 2018. KI.NRW is located at the Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems IAIS in Sankt Augustin, Germany (near Bonn). The task of the competence platform is to support the transfer of AI applications to industry, to establish the federal state NRW as a lead region for professional qualification in the field of AI, to strengthen AI research and to promote social dialogue. The certification of AI systems and thus the creation of a seal of quality for trustworthy AI are also central components of the mission of KI.NRW.

Operating under the brand “Flagships powered by KI.NRW”, the Artificial Intelligence Competence Platform North Rhine-Westphalia supports AI lighthouse projects funded by the state. The aim is to ensure and support efficient technology transfer and close cooperation between SMEs, startups, universities as well as research institutions in the federal state NRW.

KI.NRW is funded by the state ministry of economics and managed by one of Europe's leading research institutes in the fields of artificial intelligence and machine learning, the Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems IAIS in Sankt Augustin, Germany.


Since March 2020, KI.NRW offers an interactive AI map on its website, which provides a comprehensive overview of NRW as an AI location and promotes visibility for AI experts from business, science and research. The competence platform thus supports the networking of cutting-edge research, innovation and entrepreneurship. The AI map is an online research tool that helps companies, SMEs and start-ups in particular to find cooperation partners. Currently, the AI map already has more than 100 entries. All offers relating to this key technology are continuously updated and supplemented, and additional subject areas and categories will follow. Institutions from NRW that are involved in AI can be added to the map free of charge via the website of the competence platform.
