Prime Minister Söder: Regional projects can start
The DENKWELT Upper Palatinate (DWO) benefits from the research and innovation initiative of the Free State of Bavaria. Markus Söder explains that the DWO is one of seven regional projects to be funded by the state government’s rehabilitation and acceleration program with a total of 150 million euros over the next four years.
The DWO is an infrastructure project of the Lars and Christian Engel (LUCE) Foundation. On an approximately 20-hectare site in Halmesricht near Weiden, an innovative location will emerge where educational and research facilities as well as businesses will network to address all the issues involved in digital transformation.
The Center for Artificial Intelligence, which is currently being set up in the Science Park C4 Weiherhammer in cooperation with, among others, the OTH Amberg-Weiden, is part of the DWO, as is the Future Lab, which is funded by the Bayern Digital II master plan. Prof. Dr. Erich Bauer, CEO of the Lars and Christian Engel Foundation, is pleased about the positive signal from Munich: “With the support of Finance Minister Albert Füracker and the deputy dr. Stephan Oetzinger and Tobias Reiß have succeeded in making our region more sustainable and strengthening the countryside. ”
