General Meeting of Leibniz Association Confirms the Admission of the Hans-Bredow-Institut as of 2019

Berlin, 29 November 2018. The Hans-Bredow-Institut für Medienforschung becomes a member of the Leibniz Association on 1 January 2019. This was decided by the general meeting at the 24th annual conference of the Leibniz Association on Thursday, 29 November 2018. The Zentrum für Literatur- und Kulturforschung aus Berlin was admitted as well. Thus, the research organisation grows to 95 member institutions.

The admittance was preceded by recommendations and opinions by the senate of the Leibniz Association regarding the strategic fit of the Hans-Bredow-Institut and by the Science Council regarding the scientific quality of the institute, its supra-regional significance and its structural relevance for the scientific system in general. On this basis, the Joint Science Conference decided to accept both institutes into the joint funding of the Federation and the Länder on 13 April 2018.

The decision of the general meeting was the last formal step in the admittance process. Under the new name Leibniz-Institut für Medienforschung Hans-Bredow-Institut, the Hans-Bredow-Institut will become a member of Section B of the Leibniz institutes gathering the institutes with a focus on economics, social sciences and spatial research. However, there is also a variety of connections with institutes from “Section A – Humanities and Educational Research”.

For the admission, there was a starter kit given by the president of the Leibniz Association, Prof. Dr. Matthias Kleiner, including useful things like a stool with the Leibniz logo. Pictures will follow soon.
