      The existing hierarchical addressing system of the Internet was built in the last third of the 20th century, mostly on the principles of forwarding mail messages. It does not correspond to the realities of today, and it is vulnerable to modern technical threats. The fourth generation technologies, that are the foundation of the next industrial revolution (Industry 4.0.), require new approaches to what the physical and logical structure of the Internet should be like in the very near future.

      The “Private  institute for the development of public digital networks” gGmbH was created in 2021 by a group of multinational Internet experts and enthusiasts with the aim of studying the transitional aspects of new network technologies, and preparing users for how the Internet infrastructure is already being transformed to become convenient and understandable for everyone.

      We are based in Berlin, however the Internet has neither geographical boundaries nor restrictions on exchange of knowlesge. We are open for cooperation with interested colleagues in Germany and all over the world.
