    The DIZ was founded in 2015 on the initiative of the state government of Baden-Württemberg. It supports small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in particular in their digitization efforts by providing specific services. In addition, the DIZ works closely with business, science and the public sector in joint projects such as KI-Transfer BW, Digitales Hubnetzwerk BW and Digital Hub für Angewandte KI in order to bring digitization to the surface. As an independent contact point, the DIZ accompanies SMEs on their way to digital sovereignty and helps to sustainably transfer value chains into the digital world. Digitization and IT security are the DIZ's most prominent topics.
