Safe X Community

Expert network for innovations in the fields of Safety and Artificial Intelligence

Innovating Safety Together

The Safe X Community (SxC) by the Fraunhofer Institute for Cognitive Systems IKS is an exchange platform for experts from industry and research.


The digitalization and interconnectedness of our everyday lives are creating new requirements for safety-critical systems. Whereas in the past the safety of a system was considered with precisely defined properties (Safety Now), modern concepts evaluate the system together with its networking with other systems and its adaptivity (Safety Next). Implementing such concepts reliably and cost-effectively in practice is one of the key challenges facing industry. 


This is exactly where the Safe X Community of the Fraunhofer IKS comes in with its event series and enables the application-oriented exchange of experts from industry and research - across company and sector boundaries.


The participants of the Safe X Community benefit from a variety of advantages:

  • Personal exchange with experts from other industries
  • Impetus for their own research and development through insights into state-of-the-art research
  • Discussion of current trends and issues
  • Networking with experts from research with know-how in cross-industry problems

Network events for a professional exchange

The Safe X Community meets at regular intervals for a professional exchange on current topics in the fields of safety and artificial intelligence. Participation is by personal invitation only.

After an introductory keynote speech, current topics are discussed in a moderated discussion round before the event turns into a personal exchange over drinks and finger food.

Currently, the meetings are held exclusively in Munich. Further locations are being planned.

Kick-off event in Munich on November 30

On November 30, 2021, in Munich, experts from industry and research will discuss how far we have come on the road to »Safety Next«, what hurdles still exist, and how they can be solved. Prof. Dr. Simon Burton, Division Director Safety of Fraunhofer IKS, will give the keynote speech at the kick-off event.

Participation in the event is by personal invitation only.


Request participation

The Safe X Community networking events are reserved for experts in the fields of safety and software engineering as well as artificial intelligence. Participation is by invitation only.
