December 2018 – Newsletter "Research in Germany"

Cyber security – IT researchers up against hackers

Dear {NAME[std:Reader]},

Thank you for subscribing to our newsletter! We would like to draw your attention to a small change: from 2019, the "Research in Germany" newsletter will only be published once every two months rather than monthly. Everything else will remain the same, and we hope that you will continue to find just the right mix of fascinating and relevant information in each issue.

This edition features the following topics: it is not only people and organisations that are hooked up to the Internet – increasingly, things like cars are, too. Cyber security researchers are searching for ways to prevent the ever more sophisticated attacks that hackers are carrying out. You can also read in this edition why a Russian urban planner is interested in nursery schools, learn about current funding programmes and discover our number of the month.
