PIONEERING SPIRIT BY TRADITION: INNOVATION IN MEDIA AND IT
Potsdam is a digital hub for MediaTech – a centre of attraction and home for globally successful media and technology companies and innovative start-ups. It is also home to an international scientific community as well as excellent research institutions and universities. And that hasn’t just happened. This place has been living from change for more than 100 years – from the first steps of the film pioneer Guido Seeber in Potsdam-Babelsberg and the construction of the world’s first large-scale film studio through to today’s globally networked location for innovation.
Our MTH Potsdam cosmos made up of thought leaders, specialists and MediaTech enthusiasts is an open, lively community. It doesn’t just revolve around itself. The services, projects and research results offered here are suitable for everyday use and innovative. They are constantly evolving – even beyond the media and entertainment industry.
This thinking ahead (THINK!) across industry boundaries is also the basic idea of our annual MTH Conference. The MTH Accelerator of the University of Potsdam, Film University Babelsberg and the Hasso Plattner institute encourages young founder teams to refine their MediaTech ideas and business models (DEVELOP!). In addition, pioneering spirit and cooperation also characterise the MTH Lab, a space in which start-ups can realise their ideas and innovations (DO!).
The Management GmbH of the state capital of Potsdam was tasked with the marketing of the MediaTech Hub Potsdam.
GERMANY’S DIGITAL HUB FOR MEDIATECH
