The German Stifterverband association has once again presented ppi Media with its ‘Innovation through Research’ seal. The basis for the award is an annual survey conducted by the association’s department for science statistics on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
Since 2014, Stifterverband has awarded the ‘Innovation through Research’ seal to companies that take part in a biannual census on research and development in the German economy. After taking part in 2016, the company has renewed its support of the initiative after making more investments in research and development in 2020. The manufacturer focuses on the creation and development of software solutions for media produced by international publishing houses.
The solutions developed by ppi Media are used to produce publications like the New York Times, BILD, and Dainik Jagran – one of the most widely-read daily newspapers in the world – as well as around 80% of all daily newspapers on the German market. As one of the leading service providers in the field of automated newspaper production, ppi Media is playing an important role in maintaining press production and protecting critical infrastructure during the ongoing corona crisis.
The CEO of ppi Media, Dr Hauke Berndt, shares his views on the award, “Research and development are crucial for our company and the media industry. Thanks to the constant review and development of our solutions, we’re able to continue providing media companies with the best possible support in the current situation and ensure the smooth continuation of the newspapers and magazines produced by our customers.”
