European Testing and Experimentation Facilities, xTEF, are open for Business.

TEFs offer primarily technical support to innovators to test their latest AI-based software and hardware technologies at scale in real-world environments (Technology Readiness Levels 6-8)

The four European Testing and Experimentation Facilities (TEFs) announce their readiness for business on March 4 in Berlin! Please join the “All TEFs Open for Business” Event in Berlin, Germany with welcome messages from Franziska Giffey, Senator for Economy, Berlin, Germany oLucilla Sioli, Director “Artificial Intelligence and Digital Industry”, Directorate-General for Communication Networks, Content & Technology, EC

“This is your chance to connect with like-minded individuals, learn from industry experts, and take your business to the next level. Get ready for a day filled with inspiring talks, interactive panels, and valuable networking opportunities“ says Petra Ritter, Professor at the Charité Unviersitätsmedizin Berlin and Berlin Institute of Health – the Hosting institution for the event. She is Coordinator of one of the four TEFs. TEFs Testing and Experimentation Facilities are specialised large-scale reference sites which help innovative technology providers bring their product from lab to market. They are funded by the European Commission and national member states with ca. €60 million each. Four TEFs started on January 1st, 2023, covering different sectors:

  • Healthcare: TEF-Health
  • Agri-Food: agrifoodTEF
  • Manufacturing: AI-MATTERS
  • Smart Cities & Communities: Citcom.AI

They jointly are inviting the AI community to celebrate their openness for business. TEFs offer primarily technical support to innovators to test their latest AI-based software and hardware technologies at scale in real-world environments (Technology Readiness Levels 6-8). This includes support for full integration, testing and experimentation of latest mature AI-based technologies (already tested in the lab) to solve issues and improve solutions in a given application sector, including through validation and demonstration.

Martin Brynskov, Technical University of Denmark, coordinator and lead of the CitCom.ai TEF, says: “We are pleased to open the CitCom.ai testing and experimentation facilities (TEF) services for cities and communities. Our goal is to ensure that European big companies and SMEs have easier access to business development through standardised TEFs in a large number of European countries and provide with the safety and security of AI services that are rapidly transforming critical infrastructures in society. Thus, we are glad to offer developers and owners of AI technologies to effectively test their ideas and solutions before they are launched in society.”
