Wellcome to IANUS

Who is IANUS? What is and what does IANUS? These questions can’t be answered without speaking about the people who cooperate on the IANUS platform, who provide and expand its scientific and technical expertise.

By definition, IANUS welcomes anyone’s ideas, suggestions or initiatives – for technological development to strengthen social bonds, to reduce the potential for conflict and work towards peaceful living conditions, taking “peace” to be one of the core values of responsible research and innovation. IANUS thus encourages and supports the cooperation of researchers in any technological field where safety and security are discussed, where risks and benefits are often distributed unevenly, or where one needs to rely on scarce resource.
