At the FZI, I already wrote my diploma thesis in the field of healthcare and aimed for a PhD in the context of Ambient Assisted Living. During this time, I was able to work with other European research institutions on projects like universAAL.
However, I had to realize that I am not made for research ;)
The FZI Forschungszentrum Informatik (Research Center for Information Technology), is a non-profit research institute for applied computer science in Karlsruhe, Germany. FZI was established in 1985. FZI has very close collaborations with Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), but is not affiliated to KIT Karlsruhe.
