Research Groups

Our Research Groups at a Glance

Our mission is to significantly contribute to establishing trust in Networked Systems and Software by considering aspects of privacy and our society at large and by investigating novel approaches like discrete mathematics.

This mission is addressed by our research groups:

CORE – Complexity and Resilience Group

CORE group investigates methods and concepts to assess the stability of highly dynamic systems and define strategies to manage the underlying complexity.


DECSYS – Decentralized Systems Group

DECSYS group conducts fundamental and applied research of blockchain and distributed ledger technologies and develops new methods towards better security, privacy and performance of such systems. Group Website
