The Mediennetzwerk.NRW is the contact point for the digital media scene in North Rhine- Westphalia. It began work at the beginning of 2017. Endowed with a broader remit and more funds, it will now be assuming the responsibilities of the Mediencluster NRW. It is financed by the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia and receives funding from the European Fund for Regional Development (EFRD).
The goal of the network is to support the media companies in North Rhine-Westphalia, for them to use the opportunities of the digital transition and develop better connections on a national and international level. Apart from offering a comprehensive range of services and information for start-ups, young creative forces and companies, it is mainly focused on international networking of NRW players at trade fairs and markets at home and abroad as well as the active participation of companies in setting up a supra-regional NRW media network.
The Mediennetzwerk.NRW offers information services on such issues like funding possibilities as well as targeted networking opportunities amongst others in the context of major media events taking place in North Rhine-Westphalia such as gamescom, dmexco, the Web Video Award (Deutscher Webvideopreis) and the Media Forum NRW (Medienforum NRW).
