Supporting the security community

Welcome to secUnity – a project funded by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) to intensify IT security research in Germany and Europe. We support sustainable interdisciplinary networking in IT security research on a European level by

  • conducting a survey of IT security research locations,
  • systematically assessing gaps in IT security,
  • performing a dialog to obtain a vision of long-term IT security research policy,
  • organizing events and scientific workshops, and
  • participating actively in training young researchers.

Push-Pull Platform

One mechanism for identifying research projects which are innovative and also relevant to application is our push-pull platform. It allows users to ask questions about specific requirements which will then be answered by universities and can be included in the roadmap process together with original research topics.
