Industry Internships at Daimler’s DataLab

The Data and Knowledge Engineering Group frequently collaborates with industry partners on various research projects.

The cooperation between academia and industry accelerates the integration of innovation into hands-on products and services and demonstrates the direct benefits of our research. For this reason, we have industrial Ph.D. candidates at Daimler in Stuttgart and we are very supportive in offering industry internships to our students.

The team works on finance topics and currently cooperates with the University of Wuppertal on their blockchain-related research.  The mindset of the DataLab-team:
