STI National Centers offer services specifically tailored to the national audience, such as organization of conferences and industry days, training and dissemination activities as well as consulting services.Within Germany, the two National Centers in Berlin and Karlsruhe form "STI Germany". Together with other institutions, AIFB is actively supporting and participating in the setup of the National Center in Karlsruhe.
