AI Innovation Park Baden-Württemberg

AI - Made in Baden-Württemberg. In order for this seal of quality to gain national and international appeal and become a global success, a world-class artificial intelligence (AI) innovation park is to be realized with the support of the state on the basis of a resolution passed by the state government.

+++ Green light for the AI Innovation Park in Heilbronn: The Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour and Tourism Baden-Württemberg has granted the Heilbronn Consortia with a clearance certificate to start the realization of the AI Innovation Park early on. “Nearly one year after the official start of the competition process for site selection, we are making it possible for the project to start in Heilbronn”, explained Minister of Economic Affairs Dr. Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut.

The AI innovation park offers the opportunity to sustainably strengthen Baden-Württemberg as a location for AI value creation and to create an ecosystem in which new ideas are developed and implemented. As an innovation and value creation center for AI-based products and services, the AI Innovation Park is expected to make a substantial contribution to the commercialization of AI from Baden-Württemberg if realized. In addition, it is intended to work toward ensuring that the state will be both a user and, above all, a globally significant supplier of AI-based products and services in the future. In this context, it is a great advantage that Baden-Württemberg already has an outstanding research landscape in the field of AI as a key technology. The AI Innovation Park is the logical continuation of this, in order to be able to comprehensively convert scientific excellence into economic strength.

The AI Innovation Park is to be designed in the sense of the best possible ecosystem so that it attracts both nationally and internationally established companies, start-ups, research players, specialists, talents and investors. To this end, it should offer optimal innovation and location conditions, for example by providing the necessary space, state-of-the-art infrastructure, and test fields for AI products and AI services. In this way, it should be competitive with other large innovation parks in other important innovation regions and at the same time cooperate with them. Last but not least, the AI Innovation Park should also attract those companies, start-ups, talents and research players that develop disruptive innovations. Likewise, the Innovation Park AI is to set standards in climate protection, sustainability and the social challenges. Ultimately, the aim is to create a place where the future is shaped.
