About the initiative

The Digital Media Viability Lab is an initiative of Maharat Foundation supported by DW Akademie with a focus on the Middle East and North Africa.

For 2017-2019 the Lab is financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.

During this period many activities are planned. Among other things, we will be training media management consultants, conducting in house consultancy on media management issues, training on quality journalism and conducting studies on media viability issues. Regional and international conferences will also take place.

All our activities have the same goal - to provide concrete solutions to the problems media institutions are facing in the digital age in terms of viability. We want to support innovation to help develop future-ready business models that can create and distribute quality content.
