Research and Innovations in Process and Plant Safety
Humans and the environment must be protected adequately;
otherwise, technical plants may not be operated.
Technical plants however come with a certain degree of risk. A reasonable balance between the economic use and risks must prevail. The CSE-institute seeks to undertake research and be innovative with a view to shape the future of safety engineering in collaboration with competent partners. Safety must not only be taught in all areas – but must become second nature.
Applied research and development
Education in Process and Plant Safety at Universities
Research at the CSE-Institute focusses sustainably on long-term core areas (CSE Areas of Research) in the field of Process and Plant Safety.
Sustainable innovations are a product of research. Innovation programs (CSE Inno-Programs) are initiated within the core areas of research.
A number of doctorial and master thesis programs are undertaken in each Inno-Program at the CSE-Institute.
The CSE industrial advisory committee – the members of the CSE-Society – give trends and demands for future research topics. The CSE industrial advisory committee initiates research at the CSE-Institute.
The CSE scientific advisory board priorises and recommends the research focus.
Our partner go for sustainable safety technology.
Our partner ensure long-term research at the CSE-Institute.
The CSE-Institute keeps competences in process and plant safety for the Industry.
CSE-Institute is located in Pfinztal – a municipality in the district Karlsruhe, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. The CSE Center of Safety Excellence premises are in the Hummelberg innovation park, in the direct neighboring of the Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology ICT.
CSE – Organisation
The CSE Center of Safety Excellence comprises of 3 organisations. The nonprofit CSE-Society (CSE-Society – Society for the Promotion of Process and Plant Safety e.V.) which is the shareholder of the non-profit CSE-Institute (CSE Center of Safety Excellence Institute gGmbH). The third company and partner of the CSE-Institut is CSE-Engineering (CSE-Engineering Center of Safety excellence Engineering GmbH) as presented below.
