From 1993 to 1999, the IIG coordinated the college “Security in Communication Technology”, funded by the Daimler Benz Foundation with academic and industrial participants. From 1999 to 2006, the IIG coordinated the German national research priority programme “Security in Information and Communication Technology” with 14 national research organisations, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). In 2006, the IIG has held the “International Conference on Emerging Trends in Information and Communication Security (ETRICS) 2006”, supported by ACM, DFG, German Society for Computer Science (GI), German Government, IEEE and various international companies. Since 2006, the IIG coordinates the work group “Privacy in Business Processes” of the EU NoE “Future of Identity in the Information Society (FIDIS)”. The IIG participates in several European and German research projects.
