Deutsche Welle is Germany’s international public service broadcaster.
Deutsche Welle promotes the understanding of Germany as an independent nation with its roots in European culture. DW offers a full range of television, radio and online services and is known for its in-depth, reliable news and information in 30 languages – including Arabic and Kiswahili, Indonesian and Urdu, Russian and Spanish, German and English.
Since the late 1990s Deutsche Welle’s Innovation Team has successfully participated in more than twenty nationally and internationally funded R&D projects with partners such as the BBC, Yahoo, Oxford University, and Fraunhofer Institute. Always with a strong focus on fostering journalism and technology, the projects have covered topics ranging from mobile broadcasting technologies to novel search techniques in social networks, cloud services, and language processing.
On this site, we will introduce ourselves and our projects to you. Also make sure to check out our playground, where we explore innovative ideas closely related to technology used in current and future projects.
