The overall mission of the National Research Center for Applied Cybersecurity ATHENE is to provide support, through the use of application-oriented research and development, for the digitization of government, business and society from the perspective of cyber-security and privacy protection. To accomplish this task the research in ATHENE is carried out in long-term application-oriented missions. Concepts, methods and technologies are being developed in the research projects that will improve and ensure cyber-security and privacy protections sustainably across all areas of life. The problems will be addressed interdisciplinary, involving different sciences such as psychology, ergonomics, economics, etc.

The individual missions will soon be listed and described in more detail.
