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 TimesBILD, 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.

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.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
