Cyber Valley

Cyber Valley is Europe’s biggest research collaboration into artificial intelligence and intelligent systems. Alongside the University of Stuttgart, a number of other institutes are also involved in the collaboration: The University of Tübingen, the Max-Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, the state of Baden-Württemberg, the Fraunhofer Society and seven industrial companies.

As a co-founder, the University of Stuttgart has played a key role in shaping Cyber Valley since 2018, with its strengths in combining modeling, hardware, and artificial intelligence in integrated cyber-physical systems. Research in these areas, for example in intelligent robotics, shows great innovative potential. 

Cyber Valley conducts fundamental research, whilst simultaneously considering the issues of commercial exploitation and social responsibility. It also provides an ideal environment for founding start-ups - breaking down the boundaries between industrial research and curiosity-driven fundamental research.

In addition to receiving funding from the state of Baden-Württemberg, Cyber Valley at the University of Stuttgart is also supported by the Christian Bürkert Foundation and the Vector Foundation.

Two new research groups and five university chairs have been created at the University of Stuttgart under the Cyber Valley umbrella. Numerous existing and new professors are involved in the Cyber Valley project. The Institute for Artificial Intelligence was established at the University of Stuttgart in 2023. Cyber Valley is also home to the International Max Planck Research School for Intelligent Systems (IMPRS-IS), a doctoral school in which the University of Stuttgart, the University of Tübingen and the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI IS) work closely together.
