Press Kit

Short Profile
The Leibniz Institute for Media Research | Hans-Bredow-Institut researches media change and the associated structural changes in public communication. It combines basic research and research on knowledge transfer from cross-media, interdisciplinary and independent scholarly perspectives. Thus, the Institute is a valued provider of problem-specific knowledge for politics, commerce and civil society. In 2019, the Institute became a member of the Leibniz Association.

Since 1950, the Institute has been dedicated to media-based public communication, regardless of the technical platforms on which communication takes place. The fact that research is problem-oriented leads to a distinct interest in phenomena which currently require development, i.e. the "new" media. This focus makes it necessary to look at phenomena from different disciplines. The professional backgrounds of the researchers at the Institute are accordingly diverse. The organisational structure of the Institute is based on two main subject areas – the field of communication science and the field of law – where the latter is not only focused on legal matters as such, but also on research concerning regulatory structures. International comparative research is of great importance for the Institute. Consequently, the Institute is active in several international research networks. The Institute maintains a variety of contacts and seeks constant exchange with various actors. This also includes the transfer of research findings into practice, politics and the public.
