Following a series of events in the previous years, including the Media Facades Festivals, the Innovation Forum Urban Screens and the publication Urban Media Cultures, we recently launched the Urban Media Network together with ten other partners from the field of ICT – SMEs, global enterprises and research institutions. The Urban Media Network is funded by the Federal Ministry of Economy in the frame of the ZIM-NEMO programme and managed by newthinking communications GmbH. Our mutual motivation is to consult a sustainable mediatisation of the urban space by providing innovative interfaces and making accessible socially relevant content, aiming to realise and support the research, optimisation and development of urban media technologies. We all believe that urban media can offer a real added value for the local community and are excited to collaborate with the partners in order to actively design this novel market.
Partners: Asperado GmbH, dan pearlman Markenarchitektur GmbH, Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz-Institut, ICT Innovative Communication Technologies AG, Memetics GmbH, NEC Display Solutions Europe GmbH, Public Art Lab e.V., Quality and Usability Lab (TU Berlin / Deutsche Telekom Laboratories), SRH Hochschule Berlin.
