On March 10, 2021, Prof. Dr. Lars Gerhold was unanimously appointed Principal Investigator by the Board of the Einstein Center Digital Future.
As a PI, Lars Gerhold intends to actively shape and further develop the research activities at the ECDF. The Future Security Lab, led by Gerhold, has been based at the ECDF since 2018. Here, political decision-makers and representatives from authorities and organizations learn about new findings in security research. The Lab is unique in Germany: its proximity to the government district, its practical design and its function of promoting the increasingly important transfer of knowledge from science to politics make it distinctive. "I am very much looking forward to the task as PI and to helping shape the scientific and strategic orientation of the ECDF," Gerhold explains.
