Barkhausen Institut


University of Bologna

The Electromagnetic Propagation and Wireless Systems Group of the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Information Engineering “Guglielmo Marconi” (Alma Mater Studiorum - Università di Bologna), deals with research, teaching and technology transfer in the area of electromagnetic field propagation, communication and remote sensing. The team includes prof. Marina Barbiroli, Prof. Franco Fuschini, Prof. Vittorio Degli Esposti and Prof. Enrico M. Vitucci. They are cooperating with the Barkhausen Institut in the field of Physical-Layer Security, including the co-supervision of MSc students.

Politecnico di Bari

The Barkhausen Institut is cooperating on Physical-Layer Security with Prof. Giovanna Calò of the Nano-Photonics and Electromagnetics Group (nPEG) at The Department of Electrical and Information Engineering of Polytechnic University of Bari, Italy. The nPEG research team works on computational electromagnetics and on the design, fabrication and characterization of microwave and optical devices. The cooperation includes the co-supervision of students from Bari.


The Barkhausen Institut is member of the DRESDEN-concept alliance. DRESDEN-concept is an alliance of the TU Dresden and research institutions from the world of science and culture, resulting in the ideal way to communicate the excellence of research in Dresden. In particular, the co-operation of all DD-concept partners is aimed at the development and use of synergies in research, education, infrastructure, and administration. The 28 partners co-ordinate strategies to support Dresden’s leading areas and work on a joint initiative to attract top talents to Dresden.

Silicon Saxony

Silicon Saxony e. V. is Europe’s most successful trade association for the micro- and nanoelectronic, smart system, application and energy system industries. It connects 300 manufacturers, suppliers, research institutes, universities and public institutions in a network. The Barkhausen Institut is member of this continuously growing and vital hightech network.

Smart Systems Hub

On the initiative of the digital association Bitkom, the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi) has appointed 12 excellence locations throughout Germany as Digital Innovation Hubs (de:hub). As part of this initiative, the Smart Systems Hub (SSH) Dresden has been directly involved in digitization "Made in Germany" since 2017. In the middle of the microelectronics heart of Europe, the SSH unites the comprehensive Saxon expertise in the key areas of hardware, software and connectivity in a network of over 450 partners. This way, the best conditions for applicable IoT system solutions from one source and for companies of all sizes are created.

Equipes Traitement de l'Information et Systèmes

The Barkhausen Institut is cooperating with ETIS (Equipes Traitement de l'Information et Systèmes) on Physical-Layer Security under the bilateral program PROCOPE/DAAD between Germany and France. ETIS is a joint research department between CYU (Cergy Paris University), ENSEA Graduate School of Electrical Engineering and CNRS/INS2I. The French team is coordinated by Profs. Arsenia Chorti and Marwa Chafii, who are currently Associate Professors at ENSEA with ETIS lab UMR 8051.
