In the Bavarian-Austrian border region, there is a solid knowledge base for research and innovation in the field of data science with different emphases. However, there is a lack of constant, permanent cooperation between the key players and their network partners. The DataKMU project, therefore, establishes a strategic, regional cooperation platform to increase the transfer potential and the transfer performance of the participating partners. The development of a strategy for the rapid, joint implementation of transfer projects, the development of new cross-border forms of cooperation and the realisation of 12 transfer projects should increase the transfer and innovation potential of the participating organisations. DataKMU thus establishes the basis for long-term cooperation with all target groups and stakeholders, which is a necessity due to the complexity of the tasks and lack of resources.
