MDLAB is a sister academy of the Salzburg Academy on Media and Global Change. The MDLAB project was conceived at the Salzburg Academy and modeled after its curriculum and structure, but focused on the Arab world. Each year, Salzburg Academy faculty and students join MDLAB to give lectures, conduct trainings, develop research and curricula, and help in logistical support. We are proud to be partners in the Salzburg Academy global network.
