Science Council Recommends the Admission of the Hans-Bredow-Institut in the Leibniz Association

The Science Council has spoken out in favour of admitting the Hans-Bredow-Institut for Media Research into the Leibniz Association. The Council assesses the scientific quality of the Hans-Bredow-Institut and its structural relevance for the scientific system as "very good", its supra-regional significance as"excellent". The Science Council adopted a corresponding opinion at its meeting on 26 January 2018 and has now published it online. The committee of the Joint Science Conference (GWK) had asked the Science Council in September 2016 to examine whether the Institute should be included in the joint funding of the Federal Government and the Länder. “We are very happy about the opinion of the Science Council. With the positive vote, a decisive step has been taken in the direction of an admission to the Leibniz Association ", says Director Wolfgang Schulz, welcoming the decision.

In April, the Joint Science Conference (GWK) will decide on the admittance of the Hans-Bredow-Institut into the joint funding by the Federal Government and the Länder. A positive decision would be followed by negotiations with the Leibniz Association. The accession of the Institute would be possible in 2019
