Centre for Security and Society
The Centre for Security and Society (CSS) is an interdisciplinary research centre of the University of Freiburg that focuses on issues of technological, juridical, sociological, ethical and political security. Building on previous successful collaboration between various institutes and disciplines, the CSS officially started its work in November 2009. By acquiring some € 10 million third-party research funds since its foundation, it has since become a European leader in its field.
The CSS hosts research projects funded by the EU, the BMBF and other agencies, emphasising transdisciplinary research.
The Centre Academic Members are more than 40 established scholars from five faculties of the University of Freiburg as well as associated members.
