Especially the interdisciplinary exchange is also a decisive advantage for us. The interlocking of research and application have led us to become a member of eurobits e.V. Shortly before Christmas we received positive feedback – we are a member!

The strong focus on IT security can already be seen in the other member companies. In addition to AWARE7 GmbH, the following companies are also members, e.g. secunet AG, VMRAY, Rohde & Schwarz and GDATA and the PHYSEC member of eurobits e.V.
eurobits e.V. receives notification of funding and is promoted!
Punctually with our membership eurobits e.V. can expand its own activities. The association receives funds from the European Fund for Regional Development – EFRE for short. IT security is one of the outstanding fields of innovation in NRW with regard to research and company expertise, the importance for the competitiveness of the economy and the protection of critical infrastructures and personal data.
But even when it comes to funding decisions, the news doesn’t stop there. Most recently, Christine Skropke from secunet AG took over the management of the association. We are looking forward to future cooperation in the association and are optimistic that we will be able to complete one or two bachelor’s and master’s theses together with one of our students.
