The Erich Pommer Institut (EPI) is one of the leading providers of professional training in the German and European media landscape and an independent think tank.
EPI has been a non-profit limited liability company by the Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF and the University of Potsdam since 1998. As an affiliated institute of the Film University, the EPI acts as a central link between the audiovisual industry, academia and research. This allows us to quickly identify current developments in the media business as well as challenges in the digital world.
We have made it our mission to offer programs that meet those challenges and accompany media professionals in their next career steps. Top-class conferences deal with current tasks in the audiovisual industry and create an open dialog with international experts. In addition to producing independent studies and expert reports, EPI provides consulting services to companies, associations and institutions.
Our programs are supported and funded by strong national and international partners.
Our programs focus on media business, media law and media technologies. We attach great importance to diversity, equality and sustainability. With us, media professionals receive hands-on and comprehensible knowledge tailored to their requirements.
EPI's professional trainings are designed to be extra-occupational. This means you can adapt your studying to suit your individual needs. Whether compact seminars, workshops lasting several days, two-year executive master's degree programs, online courses or in-house training – you choose what suits your professional life.
From the industry for the industry
We work closely with experienced national and international experts from various areas of the media industry. Our speakers have years of practical experience and expertise in their respective fields. As a result, our programs offer media professionals access to a valuable network, beyond program participation.
Commitment and personal support
Our team and experts are committed to developing offerings that advance our participants professionally and personally. The team supports you in choosing the right training and is also available to you during the course.
