On 6 October 2021 Europe’s MediaLab organised a #Media4Europe conference on “Business Transformation of NEWS: Content sharing, Data and Stars4Media”.
The event took place in a hybrid format gathering some 300 participants at both EURACTIV Media Network headquarters in Brussels and online.
Policy makers, media professionals and opinion leaders discussed media and policy trends exemplified by media innovation and infrastructure projects. You can find the press release here.
In discussion with Stars4Media beneficiaries, moderator Stephen Fozard from WAN-IFRA, highlighted the sector’s need for a more sustainable programme to foster the business transformation. This would allow for a higher number of media innovations that would subsequently allow a higher number of participants to experience newsroom-changes-in-the-making.
This event under the #Media4Europe series is also a follow-up to the NEWS initiative of the European Commission Media Action Plan (MAAP). The #Media4Europe series of events helps ‘connect the dots’ for national publishers and editors, on several projects and policy trends.
