Welcome to TransAIR
Transatlantic AI-based Robotics

What is TransAIR?

Most of Germany's collaborative research occur within the European Union. TransAIR aims to extend collaboration between a regional network of researchers from Germany with scientist in USA. The goal is leveraging research in the field of AI and Robotics through cooperation and better understanding of each other’s approach. TransAIR is supported by “The Future of Work” an initiative of the German Ministry of Education and Research funds.

      TransAIR plans:

  • Learning from each other lies at the heart of the transatlantic dialog. To better understand current perspectives and research focus of both countries, we plan to organize open discussions on AI and Robotics, conferences and workshops in the USA
  • Offer transatlantic research opportunities through cooperation with and in German research projects
  • Promote open research for AI-based Robotics (open science, open source, open data, citizen science)

Open AI-based Robotics,
heart of AI collaboration.

TransAIR beliefs

  • TransAIR presupposes that a transatlantic dialog enables learning from each other and leverages cooperation.
  • Through a cooperation of the research locations USA and Germany best results can be expected, benefiting from each others strength.
  • The most promising way to benefit all is open research AI-based Robotics.
  • AI and Robotics offers advantages to companies based in USA and Germany that are not simple to foresee.


TransAIR is part of the international initiative “Future of Work” funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research, shaping the future in a positive way.
