State Secretary Denis Alt: Further state funding for Leibniz Institute for Composite Materials - Additional security against hacker attacks


The Leibniz-Institut für Verbundwerkstoffe GmbH (IVW) in Kaiserslautern will receive a state grant of 500,000 euros to implement measures that will lead to improvements in energy efficiency as well as additional gains in security against hacker attacks.

Dr. Denis Alt, State Secretary in the Ministry of Science and Health, presented the grant to the IVW management. "The project funding helps ensure that IVW, which works on cutting-edge technologies and materials and makes important contributions to addressing challenges facing society as a whole, can continue to conduct its work under secure and economical conditions in the future," said State Secretary Alt. Pascal Sadaune, administrative director of IVW, said, "The recent state funding contributes twofold to securing our research, through even better protection of our data and through greater self-sufficiency in our energy supply," and Professor Ulf Breuer added, "This is of great importance because we are conducting cutting-edge research for important future fields. These include, for example, the use of fiber composites for storing and transporting hydrogen for the energy transition, new lightweight structures for next-generation vehicles and aircraft, and also applications in medical technology, such as particularly well-tolerated implants or customized orthoses."
