SBA Research is a research center for Information Security funded partly by the national initiative for COMET Competence Centers for Excellent Technologies. Within a network of more than 70 companies, 15 Austrian and international universities and research institutions, and many additional international research partners we jointly work on research challenges ranging from organizational to technical security to strengthen Europe’s Cybersecurity capabilities.

IoT4CPS Public Kick-off

The public kick-off of the Austrian flagship project IoT4CPS took place at TU Vienna on February 1, 2018.

After some welcome notes from Johannes Fröhlich (Vice Rector, TU Vienna), Helmut Leopold (Head of Center for Digital Safety and Security, AIT) and Andreas Eckel (Team Lead Grants, TTTech) we looked into the contents and aims of the project.

The auditorium was then invited to join interactive workshops (one of them led by Katharina Krombholz, SBA) based on the project´s main topics. The official part of the kick-off was eventually concluded by short presentations of the brainstorming outcomes and an expert panel discussion.


FIT 2018 – Security

FIT (Frauen in die Technik) is an initiative to encourage female high school students to chose technical programs at universities.
