Dwerft – Potsdam’s Research Alliance

Dwerft: have you ever heard this term before? Dwerft is the name of a recently launched research project in Potsdam-Babelsberg. Dwerft doesn’t come from dwarf. That would be completely inappropriate. Rather, dwerft is a so-called portmanteau word from “digital” and “shipyard”. Thus, Dwerft is operating digital boat building in the figurative sense. Nine million Euros are being channeled into the project. Nearly four million of this comes from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, with the largest share coming from the partner companies themselves. What is at stake is nothing less than fundamental solutions for the film industry. As is generally known, the sector is in the middle of a transition to the digital world.
