Welcome! This is our team.

Developments over the last decade in the fight against criminal phenomena have shown that the pioneering development and coupling of forensic and IT methods can significantly improve the investigation of criminal offenses and offer new opportunities to clarify backgrounds and uncover connections. Ongoing technological change is constantly creating new challenges that make it necessary to drive forward modern research and development, teaching and practical applications, as well as training and further education in information processing and security at a high level.
We are facing up to these challenges.
