The two-year project "KI#CK - Künstliche Intelligenz: Chancen erkennen, Kompetenzen entwickeln"(KI#CK - Artificial Intelligence: Identifying Opportunities, Developing Competences) run by the cluster agency Life Science Nord together with the University of Applied Sciences (Technischen Hochschule Lübeck and oncampus GmbH) aims to create a needs-oriented qualification programme for personnel working within the Life Science cluster in the state of Schleswig-Holstein. The programme serves as entry point into the megatrend “Artificial Intelligence“ (AI), a key issue of the future, and its potential applications.
The use of AI in the Life Science sector is becoming increasingly important, particularly in the fields of medicine and medical technology, which are specifically relevant to the state of Schleswig-Holstein. The number of possible applications holds great economic potential for small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) within the cluster, however, the SMEs often lack the knowledge or competences to recognise them in order to keep pace in the future on an international basis or even take the lead.
The project is financed by the European Union, the European Social Fund (ESF), and the state of Schleswig-Holstein with approx. 498,000 EUR.
The project follows a low-threshold approach using hybride learning arrangements. This combines flexible online learning with personal learning and exchange in open event formats. For this, various complementary learning modules are developed and newly designed in permanent coordination with the target group over the duration of the project. Part of the in-depth content will be developed in English.
The KI#CK project will focus on the development, testing and evaluation of qualfication modules providing an entry point into the highly topical subject „Artificial Intelligence“ (AI) and its potential applications.
The following targets are considered as decisive for achieving the overall project goal:
01.01.2019 - 31.12.2020
The regional development programme „Landesprogramm Arbeit A2“. The project is financed by the European Union and the state of Schleswig-Holstein amounting to approx. 193,000 EUR and the European Social Fund (ESF) amounting to approx. 249,000 Euro.
