    The pilot programme is intended to test new concepts for recruiting staff at universities of applied sciences. The special feature: the two Endowed Professors are employed in the company parallel to their university work.

    Certification and Foundations of SafeMachine Learning Systems in Healthcare Artificial Intelligence - Project funding programmes – CZS Breakthroughs

    Short description

    An interdisciplinary team at the University of Tübingen is exploring principles for the safe use of AI systems in healthcare and developing guidelines for their certification.

    Chitin fluid: Chitin as a resource for multifunctional materials via water-based complex fluids Resource efficiency - Project funding programmes – CZS Perspectives

    Short description

    Among other things, chitin is the main component of the exoskeleton of spiders. Research is being conducted into chitin-based materials that can be chemically modified to make them fireproof, mold-resistant, robust and - unlike synthetic polymers - compostable.

    CO-HUMANICS: Co-presence between humans and Interactive Companions for seniors Life Science Technologies - Project funding programmes – CZS Breakthroughs

    Short description

    Two different assistance systems are being researched: Avatars and assistance robots. The aim is to enable seniors to communicate with remote relatives in their own homes as if they were there.

    Communication Centres FORUM and FOCUS STEM - Large individual funding projects – CZS Individual funding

    Short description

    Two communication and meeting centres for interdisciplinary exchange are being built in Jena: the FORUM in the city centre and the FOCUS on the Beutenberg campus. Among other things, the buildings consist of conference and meeting rooms.

    Continuous learning on multimodal data streams Artificial Intelligence - Project funding programmes – CZS Perspectives

    Short description

    The endowed professorship funded by the project is held by Prof. Dr Gerard Pons-Moll. He conducts research on the development of sustainable and robust intelligent systems that can react adaptively to new situations and continue to learn.

    Cyberphysical remanufacturing of e-scooters (Reman4E-Scooter) Resource efficiency - Project funding programmes – CZS Prototypes

    Short description

    "Reman4E-Scooter" addresses the question of how the useful life of e-scooters can be extended. The goal is to develop a transportable container for flexible, partially automated repair.
