Ilmenau Science Night


Brandenburg Labs was delighted to participate in this year’s Ilmenau Science Night – “a unique mix of science, technology, and culture” organized by TU Ilmenau on the 1st of July, 2023. The event was packed with an array of experimental lectures, laboratory tours, exciting activities, and so much more.  

Ilmenau Science Night attracted thousands of visitors eager to learn more about the latest advances in various fields and meet with regional scientists and companies. The event featured around 240 program items, allowing visitors to get hands-on experience with the latest developments in science, technology, and culture, providing them with an insight into the state-of-the-art technology being developed in the technology region of Thüringer Bogen and Technische Universität Ilmenau. 

We participated in the event together with the Department of Biosignal Processing of TU Ilmenau, showcasing the demonstrator system for our project “TheraTin – Theranostics and Therapy of Tinnitus using special hearing” which is funded under the Directive for the Promotion of Research, Technology, and Innovation of Thüringen as part of the European Union’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic (REACT-EU). Several interested visitors from around the Thuringia region were able to come by our booth and test our demo.  

During the demo, we provided insight into EEG measurements and the therapy methods used in TheraTin that people could try themselves. Always valuable to us is also the exchange with people living with tinnitus. Several people shared their personal experiences when visiting our booth, while we shared insights into the research conducted in the project. This enriched the event and provided a unique opportunity for us to round up the TheraTin project.

Moreover, our CEO, Karlheinz Brandenburg, delivered a very interesting talk titled: “The Dream of Perfect Sound” at Parkcafé in Ilmenau. He talked about the evolution of hi-fi technology, from the pioneering days of Edison to the modern playback systems we know today, including speakers, headphones, and various storage media like vinyl records, cassette players, CDs, and MP3s. Karlheinz Brandenburg also emphasized the global recognition that the research in Ilmenau has achieved in the past two decades. 

We would like to thank TU Ilmenau for organizing and hosting such an incredible event that brought together the scientific community, local community members, students, and companies to engage in stimulating conversations and exchange ideas.
