IMDEA Networks strives to have an impact on the media as an optimal channel for our work to reach the general public. We believe that science should be useful to society and help resolve the more pressing problems of its community. Thus, our goal is to go beyond the scientific community and communicate and interact with those who are the ultimate beneficiaries of our scientific results.

On January 2, 2016, El Mundo – Tecnología lists the work of IMDEA Networks in 5G among the 25 news items that revolutionized the Internet in 2015. Listed in 21st position the text indicates: "In December it was released that the Spanish Ministry of Industry, the regional government of Madrid, Telefónica, IMDEA Networks, AMETIC and Ericcson had signed an agreement to boost 5G connectivity."
False View research results from IMDEA Networks and UC3M impact advertising industry and society widely
Researchers from IMDEA Networks, UC3M, NEC Labs Europe and Politecnico of Torino have reached striking results in their recently published paper Understanding the detection of fake view fraud in Video Content Portals. For the first time, it has been demonstrated that video portals are very vulnerable to fraud by fake views from robots (bots).
In the wake of the impactful research results published by Researchers from IMDEA Networks and University Carlos III of Madrid (UC3M), and not least the huge media impact they brought with them, the Minister of Education, Youth and Sports in the Community of Madrid, Rafael van Grieken, visited Friday 16 October the Institute with a view to learning more about the research results and the general research work carried out by IMDEA Networks.
Half of the news that appear on Twitter as “trending topics” goes unmentioned in the traditional news media, and when both sources carry the same stories, 60% appear first on the social network. These are some of the conclusions of a study which analyses the dissemination of news on Twitter compared with the traditional media.
During the international IEEE P2P conference in September 2013 in Italy, a team of researchers from Institute Mines-Télécom SudParis, Carlos III University of Madrid, the University of Oregon and the IMDEA Networks Institute, published a scientific article on the development of P2P downloads in France since the Hadopi law. The press release about these findings, originally published by Télécom SudParis, has had significant repercussion on French media.
Read here the news item. The full version of the scientific publication is available at “Investigating the Reaction of BitTorrent Content Publishers to Anti-Piracy Actions”.
Interview with Antonio Fernández Anta and Agustín Santos Méndez, both researchers at IMDEA Networks Institute, in the Spanish TV news program “Los desayunos de TVE”, about the role of Internet and social networks on political campaigns, within the context of the final run-up of the campaign for the 2012 United States presidential elections, with current President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney as main presidential candidates. The program was shown the 6th of November 2012.

Report on the media impact of the joint publication by IMDEA Networks Institute, the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Technische Universität Darmstadt and the University of Oregon
The media repercussion of the publication "Is Content Publishing in BitTorrent Altruistic or Profit Driven?" presented at one of the leading international conferences on network research - the ACM CoNEXT 2010 held in San Diego, California (USA) from the 30 November to 3 December was dramatically enhanced at both a national and international level due to two news items: the first sent out by the Press and Public Relations Service at the IMDEA Networks Institute and posted on our website to coincide with the conference kick-off, and the second sent out by the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M), which appeared in madrimasd's "notiweb".
Study indicates BitTorrent publishers dominated by profit motive
IMDEA Networks Institute - 26/11/2010
Due to the publication of both news items and the work carried out by the IMDEA Networks Institute and the UC3M to maximize their take up, foremost national and international media echoed the results of this joint study led by the UC3M, the IMDEA Networks Institute, UTechnische Universität Darmstadt (TUD) and the University of Oregon. The news was carried online (in news boards, articles and blogs), in print (magazines) and the audiovisual media (in news reports and interviews that appeared on various national television channels).
The authors of the study
Ruben Cuevas (Univ. Carlos III de Madrid), Michal Kryczka (IMDEA Networks Institute and Univ. Carlos III de Madrid), Angel Cuevas (Univ. Carlos III de Madrid), Sebastian Kaune (TU Darmstadt), Carmen Guerrero (Univ. Carlos III de Madrid), Reza Rejaie (University of Oregon).
