Project Detail

The digitization of business is changing all aspects of the economy. Expense reports, insurance claims, signed legal documents, contracts, diplomas, medical prescriptions & even press photographs up until quite recently used to live mostly in paper form. This is no longer the case—many documents are created digitally & those that still start as paper are immediately scanned & further processed in electronic form. While forgery of documents & image manipulation have been known for decades, technology today makes it easy for anyone with basic knowledge of Photoshop to falsify digital images or scanned copies of official documents from birth certificates to bank statements. Sophisticated AI algorithms now make such image manipulation happen almost automatically, creating so called deepfakes that are getting more & more difficult to recognize. This immediately affects business—1 out of every 75 insurance claims involved some form of digital image fraud. 1 out of every 75 property damage insurance claims has been digitally altered. 20% of all automotive insurance claims paid (~$140 million) were fraudulent To help businesses tackle image falsification (or image forgery) & ensure trust in digital processes, we have developed Quantum Integrity—a software solution that can detect, quantify & qualify manipulations made to digital images. Quantum Integrity is built around our proprietary family of algorithms combined with advanced AI. Existing image forensics solutions & feature-incomplete & rarely target the needs of the B2B market. We have developed a solution focused on banking, financial services & insurance as well as other businesses that heavily rely on a large volume of image-based transactions.

Project Detail

DIATOMIC aims to establish a sustainable ecosystem to facilitate AME/SSI-based innovation in the health, agrifood and manufacturing sectors, all of which are under-digitized and of prime importance for society and the economy. DIATOMIC ecosystem draws from the advanced technological excellence of the DIATOMIC consortium to execute three sector-specific cross-border Application Experiments to help technology adopters, end-users and smart solution developers realise tangible benefits of digitization. In-house excellence in dissemination is leveraged to ignite further ideation of digital products, processes and business models from non-tech SMEs and midcaps; thus promoting interest in experimentation with AME and SSI. At the heart of the ecosystem, three interconnected sector-specific Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH) pulsate to accelerate digitization in-beat with sector-specific needs, and to enable delivery of AME/SSI based applications to a critical mass of customers. DIHs first assist non-tech companies to couple with counterparts across the EU with complementary technological competencies. Then, acting as a one-stop-shop, they offer the teams (i) strong technological support to accelerate design, development, prototyping and manufacturing and (ii) business support to develop solutions with a robust product/market fit. Two open calls are organised to attract and select the best of the best consortia, consisting of tech adopters, tech providers and Competence Centers. Application Experiments will be funded to generate AME/SSI-based products, processes and business models with strong market potential. DIATOMIC delivers the structure and three instances of sector-specific DIHs, +75 Competence Center, +20 application experiments, along with a validated ecosystem sustainability plan. DIATOMIC consortium is a fusion between: technological research centers (IPA, IPN and BIOS), CCs (INTRA, LIB and SYN), innovation consulting (INO), SMEs community (F6S) and investors (FASTT).

SUPPORT FOR DECENTRALIZATION PROCESSES IN THE EDUCATION SECTOR (APRODE) Programs to support the decentralization process in the sector of education in Honduras Apoyo a los procesos de descentralización del sector educativo de Honduras PROJECT DETAILS Project number: 2016.2242.2 Status: ongoing project Responsible organizational unit: 2500 Central America, Caribbean Contact: Anja Reder anja.reder@giz.de Partner countries: Honduras SUMMARY Aims: As part of the implementation of the new Education Act, education management and administration at a central and decentralized level provide their services for basic education and preschool in good quality. customer: Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and development Project partners: Secretaría de Relaciones Exterior and Cooperación Internacional Financier: not available PROJECT VALUE Total project: 13,000,000 euros Current project: 5,000,000 euros COMBINED FINANCING not available PREVIOUS PROJECTS 2013.2109.0 Support for decentralization processes in the education sector SUCCESSOR PROJECTS not available RUNNING TIME Overall project: 22.10.2014 - 31.12.2021 Current project: 01.01.2019 - 31.12.2021 CONTACT Project website not available DEVELOPMENTAL IDENTIFIERS Participatory Development and Good Governance: Project Objective Level: Project mainly targets PD / GG Environmental Protection and Resource Conservation, Ecological Sustainability Project not directed towards environmental protection / resource conservation or not (yet) to be labeled Gender Equality Project has been shown to have a positive impact on equality Poverty orientation Cross-cutting poverty reduction at macro and sector level CRS-KEY Primary education PROJECT DESCRIPTION (DE) Context The education system in Honduras is facing major challenges. Despite some progress, the targets set in terms of enrollment rates, quality of education and learning performance have not yet been achieved. Schools in rural areas often lack current teaching materials and participatory learning methods. The educational reform and decentralization of the education system are legally anchored, but are so far implemented only in part. Centralized and decentralized education administrations do not perform their tasks satisfactorily for pre-school education and primary and secondary education. The various levels lack competences and resources to fulfill their tasks. Corruption and lack of transparency also reduce the quality and efficiency of education. Cooperation needs to be improved at all institutional levels to implement education reform. Objective The quality of education has improved through individual and institutional measures. Children and young people in the poorly developed regions in the west of the country have access to high-quality, non-discriminatory education and training provision that enables qualified graduates. Approach The project advises the Honduran Ministry of Education on a central level and in six district school administrations in the structurally weak western part of the country. The goal is to decentralize education management and to make education processes more transparent and pedagogically more valuable. The level of school administrations in the municipalities and the school networks are of particular importance for the implementation in the second phase. Based on guidelines from the previous project phase, processes in educational administration are implemented. Together with civil society, transparency in the system should be strengthened. The project promotes the digitization of processes, especially in the fields of information transfer and transparency towards society. The project, in collaboration with the Pedagogical University and regional training centers, is developing e-learning training courses for teachers. These are, for example, trained in administrative processes of the education system (for example, recruitment of lecturers). In addition, the project strengthens dialogue spaces, committees and school networks and thus improves the participation opportunities of pupils, parents associations and civil society. Special emphasis is put on the promotion of girls and indigenous children as well as the inclusion of children with disabilities. In addition, the update of the digital platform SIARED (Sistema Integrado de Administración de las Redes Educativas) is planned. It documents the progress made in school networks. The alliances between actors in education with the private sector and local governments will be strengthened. In this way, investment in the education system can be used more effectively. Synergy effects can be achieved with the vocational training project FOPRONH (GIZ) and the project for improving the school infrastructure, PROMINE (KfW). This will support the transition from grade 9 to grade 10 and the establishment of two model vocational school centers in school networks. PROJECT DESCRIPTION Context The education system in Honduras faces great challenges. Despite some progress, the goals set for school enrollment rates, the quality of lessons, and learning have not yet been achieved. Schools in rural areas often paint up-to-date teaching materials and do not make use of participatory learning methods. Although educational reform and the decentralization of the education system are enshrined in law, implementation to date has been patchy. In the pre-school primary and secondary education sector. The various levels responsible for the sector do not have the skills and resources to perform their duties. Corruption and a lack of transparency thus reducing the quality and efficiency of education services. Cooperation must be improved at all institutional levels. Objective Individual and institutional measures have improved the quality of education. Children and young people in the poorly developed regions in the west of the country have access to high-quality, discrimination-free and vocational education. Approach The project advises the Ministry of Education of Honduras at the central level and six district school authorities in the economically underdeveloped west of the country. The objective is to decentralize education management and to improve the quality of education processes and make them more transparent. The municipal schools and the school networks are particularly important for implementation in the second phase. Based on guidelines from the preceding project phase. Transparency in the system is strengthened in cooperation with civil society. The project supports the digitization of processes, especially in the areas of information provision and transparency towards society. E-learning training courses for teachers. The project is working with the National Pedagogical University. They include, for example, training in administrative processes within the education system (eg hiring teachers). In addition, the project strengthens dialogue spaces, committees and school networks, thereby improving the opportunities for pupils, parents associations and civil society to participate. Particular priority areas include supporting girls and indigenous children and expressing children with disabilities. The project also plans to update the digital platform SIARED (Sistema Integrado de Administración de las Redes Educativas). This is used to document progress made in the school networks. Alliances between stakeholders in the education and training field and the private sector and municipal administrations are being expanded. This allows investment in the education system to be used more effectively. Synergies can be generated with the vocational training project FOPRONH (GIZ) and the project for improving the school infrastructure, PROMINE (KfW Development Bank). This supports the transition from the ninth to the tenth year of school and the development of two model vocational school centers in school networks.

Project Value 3 Million
Project Detail

Mass customization is finding its way into innumerable areas of daily life, e.g. textiles, shoes, as consumer strive for individuality. 84 million customers bout furniture online in the EU. The preconditions for mass furniture are enabled by digitization. Yet there is no solution for affordable individualized furniture representing a tremendous unexploited market. FORMBAR, our novel parametric design software based on mathematical-physical-architectural principles, is the enabling technology allowing customers for the first time to freely shape their furniture individually. In this Phase 2 project FORMBAR will be 100% automated. With simple mouse movements, the customer designs a photo-realistically rendered 3D model and thus constantly inspects his created piece of furniture visually with regard to the selected materiality and colour. By directly integrating the machine specifications into the design process, the self-generated 3D piece of furniture is automatically converted into an optimized cutting pattern and produced cost-effectively using state-of-the-art CNC milling machines. The generated milling data are sent to one of the more than 100 carpenters of OKINLAB in close vicinity to the customer. FORMBAR covers the entire furniture manufacturing process 100% automated, from design to production, in a single application. In combination with mathematically implied algorithms, OKINLAB can guarantee the functionality as well as the producibility of the furniture while at the same time implementing a scalable business model. With FORMBAR mass customization of individual furniture becomes affordable for the first time. OKINLAB with its team of 16 employees from software development, architecture, design, marketing, has developed a configurator in the past selling more than 1,500 pieces of furniture as of today. By automation of FORMBAR costs of the furniture is reduced by 50% opening the technology for the mass market with a potential of €25.3 billion.
