FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 23, 2015

The European Journalism Centre announces the launch of a series of eight media innovation events for journalists and editors which will take place in major media capitals of Europe.

The News Impact Summits are a new type of media innovation event, organised by the European Journalism Centre (EJC) in cooperation with The News Lab at Google, focusing on how recently developed approaches and tools can significantly change the way we work in the newsroom, the way we tell stories, and the way we engage audiences and society as a whole.

Free of charge, mixing keynote speeches, ignite talks, panel discussions and above all, training sessions, the series will focus on major media innovation trends, and will try to assess the impact of tools used by innovative newsrooms and journalists.

The first News Impact Summit takes place in Brussels on the 24th of February 2015, and features speakers from Datawrapper, L’Echo, De Tijd, International Consortium for Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), JournalismFund, Euractiv, The Financial Times and Gruppo L’Espresso. It will be followed by events in Hamburg on March 31 and Paris on April 28; to be followed by events in Madrid, London, Amsterdam, Warsaw and Prague later in the year.
