We are honored to announce that the Zuse Schools of Excellence in AI have been featured in the AI action plan of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research ("BMBF-Aktionsplan Künstliche Intelligenz")! 

This strategic plan aims to significantly advance AI research, development, and application in Germany. It emphasizes strengthening Germany's position in the global AI landscape. This is done by enhancing research infrastructure and transfer, facilitating AI integration into various sectors such as healthcare, fostering a dialogue on the societal and ethical implications of AI and ensuring AI competencies at all levels in the long term. Notably, the BMBF has committed over 1.6 billion Euros to this AI action plan.  

Being explicitly named in this influential plan highlights the dedication of the three Zuse Schools including relAI, to fostering ethical, reliable AI innovations and preparing the next generation of AI leaders. 

A huge thank you to our supporters, partners, fellows, and students for making this milestone possible!
