CSCAN network

Home Our network

The CSCAN Network has been established to facilitate research co-operation with other academic institutions.

The first node was established at the University of Applied Sciences, Darmstadt in 2004, with a number of participating academic staff and active research projects. In June 2007, the Centre for Applied Internet Research (CAIR) at Glyndwr University joined as an adjunct node. In June 2010 the Furtwangen University of Applied Sciences joined as our second full node with Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences joining in February 2015.

Full details of the staff and students under the CSCAN network can be found on our people page.
