Research Projects to Secure Supply Chains

Research Projects to Secure Supply Chains

The projects focus on the development of innovative security solutions that build up provisions against a breakdown in production and logistics processes (supply chains). More Research Projects to Secure Supply Chains

Securing Food and Food Supply Chains

Securing Food and Food Supply Chains

Central focus of the joint projects is the development of strategies and innovative solutions to secure the food supply chain in crisis situation like for example in case of contamination of food or drinking water. One of the main aim is to restore the affected food supply chain to a functioning state. More Securing Food and Food Supply Chains

Detection of Hazardous Substances

Detection of Hazardous Substances

These projects focus on the development of detection systems for biological or chemical and explosive substances as well as the possible applications of Terahertz technology in detecting weapons and hazardous substances. More Detection of Hazardous Substances

Projects Funded through the "KMU-innovativ" Programme

Projects Funded through the "KMU-innovativ" Programme

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs or, in German, "KMUs") are at the forefront of technological progress in many areas but they often have difficulty coping with the risks cutting-edge research entails. With this in mind, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) introduced the "KMU-innovativ" funding programme to promote high-risk research & development projects and thus foster SME innovation in Germany.
