Cyber Science Center is a national initiative where security issues around digitization are approached from various fields such as criminology, computer science, law, psychology, philosophy and communication.
The starting point in the research programme is that security issues in a digital environment are best studied and understood from a multidisciplinary approach.
A multidisciplinary, scientific approach does justice to the complexity of practical issues. The emphasis is mainly on a combination of behaviour and digital security, unlike a vast body of research from a more technical angle.
The research program comprises three thematic priorities: Offenders, Victims and Law Enforcement, and focuses specifically (but not exclusively) on the following areas: Business, Youth and the Criminal Justice System
Cyber Science Center is a collaboration between NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences, Dutch Police Academy and Open University. Three specific positions that complement each other and lead to a wide and strong network because of the diversity of knowledge and skills, a variety of practical ability (evaluation, grant acquisition, educational development) and a variety of complementary network inputs.
