The AI Lab provides a space where new learning concepts can be developed, tested, and immediately implemented into the teaching programme. There is room for creativity and experimentation with new formats and methods of working. Digitalisation options and business ideas can be promoted and developed. Through cooperation with partners from the regional Tech Community as well as from the business sector, the AI Lab offers a wide range of opportunities for teaching, research and intensive knowledge transfer.


Events at the AI Lab are an excellent opportunity for businesses to meet FS students, and professors and exchange ideas about artificial intelligence. Simultaneously, it is a great way for students to get to know businesses, the local AI community and to gain hands-on experience. For FS employees, events at the AI Lab are an excellent way to gain knowledge and skills to foster the digital transformation of the organisation.
