Germany's international broadcaster Deutsche Welle (DW) has been in dialogue with the world for 60 years. Since its first day on air, it has transformed from a shortwave radio broadcaster to a multimedia organization.
"With its journalistic content in 30 languages, DW ensures Germany's multimedia presence in the world," said Erik Bettermann, Deutsche Welle's Director General.

German Music Information Center (MIZ)
Thanks to the extraordinary density and diversity of its musical life, Germany continues to be regarded as a 'land of music'.

The topics range from music education to amateur music-making, and from the funding and professional practice of music to the music industry and the media.
