Joint project

Development of an innovative crisis management tool for SMEs 

Within the framework of a funded cooperation project with Vomatec GmbH, FIZ Karlsruhe, EASC e.V. and the IWiS Institute, a tool is to be developed that will enable small and medium-sized enterprises in particular to intuitively identify, record and evaluate risks and threats, take appropriate countermeasures and document the entire risk/crisis management process.


The IWiS Academy is an education and training initiative with a focus on security and crisis management in all its facets. As part of the international cooperation network with universities and other educational institutions offering a course in security and crisis management, foreign lecturers and students are invited to Germany for an intensive course on a security-related topic in order to work intensively on the respective core topic. The participants will be supported by impulse lectures from proven experts.
