The internationalization of the Einstein Center Digital Future (ECDF) is moving forward: The five new professors Emmanuel Baccelli, Michelle Christensen, Florian Conradi, Guillermo Gallego, and Janik Wolters have valuable experience at internationally renowned research institutions. The scientists from France, Spain, Denmark, and Germany are setting new impulses and research approaches in Berlin. Each one of them was appointed to one of the participating universities, Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, or the Berlin University of the Arts (UdK). They will be working closely together within the ECDF.
Prof. Dr. Emmanuel Baccelli has been ECDF Professor for “Open and Secure IoT Ecosystem” at Freie Universität Berlin in cooperation with Inria and ECDF since the beginning of September. Prof. Michelle Christensen and Prof. Florian Conradi jointly took up the ECDF Guest Professorship for “Open Science” at Technische Universität Berlin in August. Prof. Dr. Guillermo Gallego has held the ECDF professorship for “Robotic Interactive Perception” at the TU Berlin since September 2019. Prof. Dr. Janik Wolters has been ECDF Professor for “Physical Foundations of IT Security” at the TU Berlin and the German Aerospace Center since July.
The Einstein Center Digital Future (ECDF) is an interdisciplinary project of Technische Universität Berlin, Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and the Berlin University of the Arts. It is based on a large-scale public-private partnership (PPP) between more than 30 companies, organizations, all four Berlin universities, Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, and more than ten research institutions from Berlin science. The project creates more links in the field of digitalization in Berlin, tries out new forms of cooperation, and concentrates on innovative interdisciplinary cutting-edge research. The Einstein Foundation Berlin approved the ECDF in September 2016 after an elaborate review.
