About the professorship
The professorship for Communication Technology for the Industrial Internet of Things was created as part of a Lower Saxony initiative to improve the research and teaching of digital technologies, which is funded by the Lower Saxony Ministry of Science. The TU Clausthal cooperates with the Hochschule Wolfenbüttel (Ostfalia) and a total of ten "digitization professorships" were established at the end of 2019, five for Ostfalia and five for TU Clausthal (https://www.tu-clausthal.de/universitaet/einrichtungen/presse-und-oeffentlichkeitsarbeit/pressemitteilungen/artikel/digitalisierungsprofessuren-erfolg-fuer-tu-clausthal-und-ostfalia). These digitization professorships cooperate on the diverse challenges of digital transformation, especially in industry, on an interdisciplinary basis in the DIGIT research network (https://www.digit-research.de/). This professorship in IIoT communication expands the portfolio in the direction of communications engineering and radio frequency technology.
