Follow us on twitter. We offer several channels to provide you with news from different categories and novelties from the idw itself.

General channels
Lists of topics

Twitter lists are a bundle of subject area s to inform you about the latest research results and research projects in the respective subject areas. Alternatively, you can follow the individual channels. At the moment the individual channels are only in german.


With facebook we share technical and substantial news about idw and its projects. Furthermore we post several times a week frequently read idw-news of our website.


Via RSS you can receive news from your prefered categories. After you have confirmed your settings, the idw system will automatically create a link for you.
