FZI Friends’ Association

Voluntarily committed

Förderverein Forschungszentrum Informatik Karlsruhe e.V.

Industry-related research institutions like the FZI maintain particularly intensive contacts with companies in cooperating industries as part of their industrial projects. To improve the integration of the FZI beyond these project-related contacts into the industries nationwide and regionally into the general economic activities, the Förderverein Forschungszentrum Informatik Karlsruhe e.V. (FZI Friends’ Association) was established in 1984 by 26 founding members. Today, the association has about 80 members.
The FZI Friends’ Association is a network of companies and other organizations with legal capacity that want to use modern information technologies. To this end, they maintain contact with each other and with the FZI and support the work of the research institution.

“The EU Commission is constantly introducing new IT regulations, from the Cybersecurity Regulation and Data Act to the Digital Services Act, the Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA) and the AI Act – the list is not exhaustive.
