Project description:

The Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) aims at strengthening AI and data competences in its research institutions. The "AI & Data Accelerator" (KIDA) project will drive forward the cross-institutional development and expansion of the necessary skills and resources in a triad by the end of 2025. This triad consists of:

  • the vision for a technical infrastructure and related resources enabling efficient work in the field of AI and data,
  • the central goals and core results of the KIDA project,
  • the strategic initiatives to realise the goals and core results.

In order to realise the vision for the technical infrastructure the KIDA project pursues three central objectives:

Objective 1 Increase AI and data literacy: Build and strengthen AI and data expertise in all institutions by creating efficient structures for competence development and knowledge exchange within and between institutions.
Objective 2 Expand technical infrastructure: Establish and operate multi-institutional infrastructures that enable efficient development and use of AI technologies, with a focus on sharing these technical infrastructures.
Objective 3 Improve the usability of data for AI applications and AI models: Develop solutions to efficiently provide data for AI technologies and offer AI solutions as interoperable services, including the creation of shareable resources to address legal issues.

The aforementioned goals and associated tasks will be implemented by teams in eight cross-institutional initiatives.
