Start of construction of the Center for Networked Sensor Systems (ZEVS)


ZEVS - Martina Gerken

Prof. Martina Gerken is pleased that the Center for Networked Sensor Systems (ZEVS) will soon be established here. She has coordinated the planning since 2014. There are 21 scientific groups at CAU involved in the topic. 20 companies and external institutions have already expressed their interest in collaborating.

The development of the campus of the Faculty of Engineering at Kaiserstr. 2 is progressing. Recently, the construction site for the new Center for Networked Sensor Systems (ZEVS) was prepared. The ZEVS will bundle the internationally outstanding research activities in the field of sensor system technology, sensor information technology and sensor system modeling that exist at CAU. Starting in 2023, both basic research and application-oriented research and technology transfer will take place at the innovation center. "The center is to become a hub for lively exchange within all research, development and industry projects in the field of networked sensor systems in Schleswig-Holstein. The regional industry is to be provided with the latest research findings as well as optimally trained manpower. Furthermore, new spin-offs are to be supported by a comprehensive laboratory infrastructure and the close exchange of experience, so that innovative technological spin-offs also have good chances of success," explains Professor Martina Gerken, who coordinated the initiative and the application for the EFRE funds.

At ZEVS, scientists from the fields of electrical engineering and information technology, materials science, computer science, medicine and biology will jointly research the networked sensor systems of the future. To this end, 125 workstations are to be made available. Employees from around 25 working groups (including five new junior research groups/spin-offs) are to be located.

At the same time, the construction of a new lecture hall building and the redesign of the campus axis are being prepared on the campus of the Faculty of Engineering.
