The Institute’s scientific and technical activities focus on the resilience of maritime infrastructures. The objective of all its concepts, analyses, developments and tests is to enable maritime infrastructures, as complex systems – with support from various participants, users and stakeholders – to recognise and mitigate threats, adapt to them and counter their effects in a timely and efficient manner.

The Institute’s research and development activities focus on the resilience of maritime infrastructures and maritime safety technologies. The objective of all of its concepts, analyses, developments and tests is to enable maritime infrastructures as complex systems – with support from various players, users and stakeholders – to recognise and prevent threats, adapt to them and counter their effects in a timely and efficient manner. The current research activities are focused on three missions. Firstly, they provide solutions to efficiently and effectively address global challenges such as security, mobility, the Energy Transition or changing values. Secondly, they provide security-related authorities and organisations with independent advice. In order to solve specific tasks, we further develop theoretical foundations, carry out simulations, build demonstrators and test them in a real environment together with their future users. All three missions should lead to a direct benefit for society as well as the economy.
