Barkhausen Institut

Trustworthiness for the Tactile Internet of Things

Our research institute was founded in 2017 in Dresden, Saxony. It brings together researchers from a variety of backgrounds from all over the world. We develop break-through technology with the aim of increasing the dependability of IoT systems (Internet of Things), that includes ensuring availability, integrity and confidentiality. Doing so, we create a foundation of a trustworthy IoT which is one basis of a future "digital democracy". Therefore, besides such scientific research, science communication plays an important role in everyday’s work of the Barkhausen Institut.
