Within the framework of the AI innovation competition, the BMWi intends to promote outstanding approaches for new forms of AI-based platform economy in important sectors of the German economy. The aim is to realise large, assertive lighthouse projects that provide impetus for entire sectors of the economy.

A total of 16 large collaborative projects emerged as winners from the competition phase and were awarded prizes in Berlin on 19 September 2019, including the SPAICER consortium, which successfully prevailed against strong, national competition and will be funded with more than 10 million euros for three years from 1 April 2020.

In addition to the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), SPAICER involves the Machine Tool Laboratory (WZL) at RWTH Aachen University, the University of Freiburg, the Technical University of Darmstadt, the Institute for Technology and Innovation Management at RWTH Aachen University, the Otto Beisheim School of Management (WHU), deZem, Feintool, SAP, SCHOTT, SCHAEFFLER, SEITEC, SENSEERING and Waelzholz. Another 42 associated partners support the project consortium with important practical knowledge.
