About the Airbus-CISPA Digital Innovation Hub

In June, Airbus and the CISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security signed a Memorandum of Understanding ("MoU") at the ILA air show in Berlin with the aim of opening a competence center for cybersecurity and trustworthy artificial intelligence in Saarland. The "Airbus-CISPA Digital Innovation Hub" will be located at the CISPA Innovation Campus in St. Ingbert and will start its work this year. Within the next three years, around 100 experts are expected to be employed at the campus. In the long term, Airbus and CISPA want to expand the competence center to more than 500 experts.
