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.
One of the requirements for a trustworthy IoT is a secure and privacy-respecting data processing. Why, despite all the efforts, has it not yet been possible to get to grips with the security problems in the IoT sector? Where do we currently stand in the area of research and development?

What is "Internet of Things" actually? And where can you find this "IoT" in your everyday environment?
Dive into an interactive world and learn more about a future technology that is sometimes already reality!
Ein neues Dialogformat im Rahmen der SCHAUFENSTER DER FORSCHUNG gibt Bürgerinnen und Bürgern die Möglichkeit Eins-zu-Eins mit den Wissenschaftler:innen des Barkhausen Instituts ins gespräch zu kommen - ohne Bühne, ohne Publikum, ohne Vorbehalte dafür auf Augenhöhe und mit viel Freude am Austausch.
Connected things will change many areas of our lives and also offer new opportunities for creative workers and artists. To explore the exciting connection between IoT and culture in more detail, we have developed explanatory videos together with students of cultural management at the HTW Saar.
We cordially invite all citizens to discover the connected world with us. For the 18th Dresden Long Night of Science on 9 July, we will open our digital rooms.
