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.

MDLAB would not have been possible without the generous support and sponsorship of the Norwegian Embassy, the European Union (EU), Deutsche Welle Akademie (DW), Federal Foreign Office Germany, and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). We are thankful for their sponsorship and support.
