The research center for media and communication (RCMC) pools media based science at the University of Hamburg in six faculties. It also coordinates them with the activities at Hans Bredow-Institute and develops new initiatives in this area.
It is the largest media and communication network in Germany and one of the largest in Europe. Apart from interdisciplinary research projects, the centre initiates events and publications and supports international media exchange. Currently, the RCMC has more than 40 members.
