Cybersecurity: Next round of German-Israeli Partnership Accelerator starts

The first round of the Hessian-Israeli Partnership Accelerator (HIPA) ended on January 9 with the presentation of new cybersecurity developments. HIPA is the first and only German-Israeli accelerator focusing on cybersecurity. The next round will start in the second half of 2018. The application period for the next round is now open.

The Hessian-Israeli Partnership Accelerator (HIPA)  is addressing students of computer science and engineering, and brings together top cybersecurity talents from Israel and Germany. At the final event, the participating project teams presented new approaches to the quality control of cloud services, the security of Internet infrastructures, and the prevention of spam attacks and denial of service attacks on e-mail accounts.

The project teams consist of cybersecurity talents from both countries, solving important problems of daily business life. The Accelerator thus combines startup culture with the strengths of the cyber nation Israel and German applicated research in cybersecurity. The program is a joint activity of the Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology SIT in Darmstadt and the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

The next round will start in the second half of 2018. The application period for the next round is now open.
