In cooperation with our first-class partners, we develop high-quality, innovative, inspiring and target group-oriented offers for our members and our community: from educational and matchmaking formats to infrastructure offers through to programs and awards.
We offer our partners a platform to initiate projects together with our members, develop responsible AI and put it into use.
We offer our partners a platform to work with the community to understand what responsible AI means for all of us, what constitutes sustainable AI and what digital sovereignty means.
We bring together the questions and use cases from companies and the public sector with the AI expertise of our partners.
We connect our research, development, application and networking partners with each other.
Together we strengthen the AI location of Baden-Württemberg, Germany and Europe in the world.
In our current premises we offer hardware infrastructure as well as office, event and meeting rooms. With the completion of our first building in mid-2024 (and also on our Ipai Campus, which is currently being built in the north of Heilbronn), we are significantly expanding our offering.
A lively community is the be-all and end-all of an active ecosystem and so one of our priorities is to offer all of our members the best possible setting. To create a platform and provide a protected space for networking and talking together and with each other. A wide variety of offers are being planned for this, such as matchmaking platforms.
In order to promote lively exchange within the community, we as Ipai offer a wide variety of event formats, but also offer our members the opportunity to hold target group-specific events in our space. We currently have a wide range of events, such as insight formats, community events, education programs and afterworks, which take place at regular intervals and are constantly developing new formats in order to always actively respond to the needs of our members.
