The Robotics Innovation Center (RIC) belongs to the Bremen location of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI GmbH). Headed by Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Frank Kirchner, here scientists develop robot systems to be used for complex tasks on land, under water, in the air, and in space. The RIC closely cooperates with the Robotics Group at the University of Bremen.

The DFKI, based in Kaiserslautern, Saarbrücken, Bremen and leading a project office in Berlin is the world's largest research center in the field of Artificial Intelligence.
