EU Research

A number of EU newcomers from the humanities and social sciences were successful last year among the EU projects. “SEnECA – Strengthening and Energizing EU-Central Asia Relations” is a project coordinated by Prof. Dr. Michael Kaeding, UDE, and the deputy director of the Berlin Institute for European Politics (IEP) Dr. Katrin Böttger and will receive around 1.5 million euros in funding over the next two years. For the National Contact Points (NCP), this proposal is a best practice example.

The UDE philosophy professor Dr. Andreas Niederberger is the coordinator of the EU project “NoVaMigra – Norms and Values in the European Migration and Refugee Crisis”, which was approved in 2017 with funding of 2.5 million euros.

Funding has been won for three further EU collaborative projects in the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) section: “RESTASSURED – Secure Data Processing in the Cloud” (Prof. Dr. Maritta Heisel), “BDVe – Big Data Value ecosystem” and “TT – Transforming Transport” (both Prof. Dr. Klaus Pohl). Approval has also been given in Societal Challenges for “Blue Growth” (Prof. Dr.-Ing. Bettar Ould el Moctar) and “Low carbon energy” (Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dieter Brillert and Prof. Dr. Christoph Weber). In the Internet of Things thematic section, funding has been acquired for a project of Dr. Andreas Metzger. The project “PDP4E – Methods and tools for GDPR compliance through Privacy and Data Protection Engineering” (Prof. Dr. Maritta Heisel) has been running in Digital Security since 2017.
