Digital News Workshop for the Digital and News Communities in PSM

If digital is the new normal, what is the impact for news production and consumption trends?

In an increasingly digital society, smartphones and referrals are at the center of news consumption habits. News production nowadays means going mobile and going social. It is our duty as public service media (PSM) to adapt rapidly to changes in the media environment in order to serve all audiences effectively with high-quality content and on all devices and platforms.

We would like to invite you to join a one-day workshop to explore experiences, ideas and case studies about how public service media organisations are delivering digital news services. We hope to inspire you, to find opportunities for collaboration and to listen to your challenges in order to continue offering EVN News services that meet your needs.
The workshop is open to EBU Members only.
