Center of Advanced Security Research Darmstadt - CASED

An internationally important cluster for IT security research and development is found at Darmstadt. It is here where computer scientists, engineers, physicist, legal experts and experts in business administration of TU Darmstadt, Fraunhofer SIT and Hochschule Darmstadt (University of Applied Sciences) develop trend-setting IT security solutions and prepare them in order to be commercially useful.

All of those partners involved, qualify students and scientists for careers in science, business and administration. Headquarters of that cluster is the Center for Advanced Security Research Darmstadt (CASED) which receives funds by the LOEWE program of the Hesse government. The funds of LOEWE cover infrastructure of CASED and cooperative CASED projects of cluster partners, i.e. TU Darmstadt, Fraunhofer SIT and Hochschule Darmstadt.


In these projects the cluster develops applicable basic knowledge and IT security solutions. Thanks to its broadly-based position in regards to topics and competencies, the cluster and its headquarters CASED can realize especially complex projects efficiently and sustainably. The Darmstadt IT-security cluster always welcomes new members which wish to benefit directly from the cooperation within.
