The Leibniz Institute for Media Research | Hans-Bredow-Institut (HBI) in Hamburg examines media change and the related structural shifts in public communication. It combines basic research and research on knowledge transfer from cross-media, interdisciplinary and independent scholarly perspectives, situating the Leibniz Institute as a leading provider for problem-specific knowledge to politics, commerce and civil society. In 1950, Universität Hamburg and the then NWDR (Northwest German Broadcasting Corporation) founded the Institute as a legally responsible foundation under civil law and named it after Hans Bredow, who played an important role in the development of broadcasting technology. Since then, the Institute has been researching media development from an interdisciplinary perspective.
