KI#CK: Artificial Intelligence: Recognizing Opportunities, Developing Competencies
Project duration: 2019 – 2020
Project partner: Technische Hochschule Lübeck, Life Science Nord Management GmbH, oncampus GmbH.

The use of AI is becoming increasingly important in the life sciences and here also in the field of medicine and medical technology, which is particularly relevant for Schleswig-Holstein, especially in the prevention and early detection of diseases, but also in individualized patient-oriented therapies, speech and facial recognition or AI-guided precision medicine and medical care in hospitals.
The multitude of possible fields of application holds great economic potential for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the cluster, but there is often still a lack of sufficient knowledge and skills to recognize this in order to not only keep pace internationally in the future, but also to take the lead. Reservations about AI also put the brakes on many ideas at an early stage.
For this reason, the KI#CK project aims to enable employees to independently develop innovative ideas for promising business concepts by teaching them conceptual and methodological skills in addition to providing them with an introduction to the subject matter.
Any reservations about this new technology will also be questioned. Experts from various fields will work closely together to create a diverse range of training courses that will be co-developed, tested and then further developed by companies in the sector. The latter is a decisive factor for success in order to make the offerings available beyond the project term and to cover existing and emerging qualification needs.
The project KI#CK - Artificial Intelligence: Recognizing Opportunities, Developing Competencies of the Life Science North Cluster, the Lübeck University of Applied Sciences and oncampus GmbH has the goal of creating a demand-oriented qualification offer for employees of the Life Science Cluster in Schleswig-Holstein in order to provide them with a content-related introduction to the highly topical future subject of "Artificial Intelligence" (AI) and its possible applications.
In the trial phase starting in January 2019, the online services will initially be aimed at employees in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with a place of business in Schleswig-Holstein. After that, they will be offered nationwide for a fee. The KI#CK project in Schleswig-Holstein is funded by the state's Labor Program with resources from the European Social Fund.
