Smart Data Forum

Funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and developed in cooperation with the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF), Smart Data Forum is a knowledge hub, demonstrator and networking platform for Smart Data technologies and stakeholders in Germany. The Forum is managed by the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), and also works closely with the two technology programs Smart Data and Smart Service Welt.

As a knowledge and networking platform for small and medium sized enterprises, the Forum provides information about current technological trends and developments through participation at national roadshows and at the offices in Berlin.

Innovative research projects, technologies, and products from Germany are introduced to the international audience at international roadshows, which also encourages new partnerships.

Companies and outstanding projects are provided a platform for more visibility and networking of their innovations at the exhibition hall at Fraunhofer’s Heinrich-Hertz Institute (HHI) in Berlin.
