The Competence Center sees itself as a hub between business, politics and institutions on the one hand and research and teaching on the other. The Competence Center promotes the discussion and development of a comprehensive and holistic view of security policy in terms of the securitization concept, which encompasses Space Security, Cyber Security, Economic Security, Environmental Security, Societal Security, Political Security and Public Security.
Successful security policy and the design of security strategies for the public and private sectors -in a global context-, especially in the development of forward-looking concepts for resilience and the protection of critical infrastructures, require open and unbiased exchange of ideas between all actors in society, politics, business, public administration, as well as science and research.Discussing complexity and how complexity changes over time, as well as drawing inferences from the behavior of a system, are essential aspects in generating security policy concepts and deriving strategies by and for individual and collective social actors.
In order to promote this discourse and to provide theoretical, methodological and practical impulses for security policy practice, we endeavour to design and create a security policy think tank that addresses innovations in qualitative and quantitative concepts, models, methods and tools in the area of monitoring and risk assessment as well as modeling and simulation — in order to be able to assess the future level of required resilience at different system levels in the face of variable security challenges and to provide support as a thought leader.
The goals of such a think tank will hence include the development of fundamental security policy concepts to increase resilience and practical suggestions for their further development.
In the area of tension between, for example, globalization, discovery, design and economization of space as well as digitalization and automation, interest in a holistic view and in the development of strategies for risk reduction and resilience thrives.
The tasks of the competence center are:
