New Project: NeTIRail-INFRA
The Needs Tailored Interoperable Railway project (NeTIRail-INFRA) focuses on infrastructure challenges affecting a large number of people and a large geographical portion of Europe. The intended evaluations encompass ethical, juridical and societal impacts and address questions of social justice, freedom and security.
Elisa Orrù will participate in the EU Horizon 2020 research project on behalf of the University of Freiburg's Centre for Security and Society
New Administrative Manager
As of March 1st, Dr. Nicholas Eschenbruch has taken over as the Centre's new administrative manager. A cultural anthropologist and historian by training, he was most recently involved in the foundation of University College Freiburg as its first academic director.
New Rooms and Address
The Centre has moved to new offices at Werthmannstrasse 15. Most Centre researchers and all admin staff now share offices at a single site, on a modern office floor close to the city centre, with a remarkable view of the surrounding Black Forest hills. We expect this move to facilitate the Centre's transdisciplinary research further and to highlight its standing within the university.
