About T-Labs

At Telekom Innovation Laboratories (T-Labs), the passion for innovation and technology drives 300+ international experts and scientists to work together in the three core fields of Blockchain, Intelligence und Experiences. T-Labs is the R&D unit of Deutsche Telekom and is in a close partnership with the Technische Universität Berlin. At its sites in Berlin, Darmstadt, Beer Sheva, Budapest and Vienna, T-Labs sits amongst a world-class host of universities, startups, investors, research institutes and corporate innovation hubs to jointly shape the future of communication services.

The T-Labs team is engaged to live the entrepreneurial spirit and focus on developing Proof of Concepts (PoCs) and Minimum Viable Products (MVPs), which highlight future technology applications. In that way, T-Labs fosters its agility to adapt to a fast-changing and vibrant environment and always works on cutting-edge technologies.

From Idea to MVP – The Players

T-Labs’ method of work follows a collaborative approach combining the work of visionary disruptors, business strategists and creative makers, working together to produce MVPs for its business partners in Deutsche Telekom. Each project team works in close cooperation with internal stakeholders, academic partners and external companies (start ups), to develop MVPs that solve concrete customer problems.

New technologies will shape and model the corporations as well as the social environment. In this context, T-Labs, as the forward-thinking innovation unit, aims not only to explore the latest technologies, but also to act a social enabler, a contributor and trusted partner for sustainable social development, which ultimately reveals the impacts and opportunities of innovations.

T-Labs is in the driver’s seat of innovation leader and social enabler, fostering the benefits of open cooperation between various ecosystem partners and bringing new technologies to market.

TEAM

Some 300 experts and scientists from a wide variety of disciplines, as well as young entrepreneurs, from more than 25 nations all work together at T-Labs.

ACADEMIA

NETWORK

Participation in research funding programs has a long tradition at Deutsche Telekom. Since about 1990, Telekom has been cooperating with leading technology partners, research institutions and universities in various research funding programs, from FP5 to the current EU Framework Program Horizon 2020. In the upcoming framework program Horizon Europe, T-Labs’ Funding Office will once again become the central contact point within Deutsche Telekom.

In addition to the advisory and supporting function, the Funding Office ensures transparency in all relevant funding topics. The collaborations cover seminal and telecom-related areas (such as 5G, IoT and SmartCity), using researchers’ collaboration across disciplinary and national boundaries. The T-Labs are focusing their participation on selected national funding initiatives of the BMBF and BMWi as well as funding initiatives of the EU.

With these activities, T-Labs can give effective impulses and establish future-oriented topics. The knowledge gained contributes to the technological development of global standards as well as the further development of networks and services.
