The European Journalism Centre announces a new 2016 series of nine News Impact Summits, free-of-charge media innovation events, powered by the Google News Lab. The summit series builds on its successful 2015 editions by revisiting some of the European capitals from last year, whilst covering new locations in Europe and for the first time the Middle East.
Since its pilot event in Vienna, the series has visited nine European cities, and established a network of 2300+ editors, journalists, newsroom managers and J-school students all across Europe. This year’s series will also cover new topics in the domain of digital journalism including but not limited to digital storytelling, interactives, newsgathering, verification, VR and AR.
In the first half of the year, there will be five summits in the following cities and dates;
- Milan, Italy (Friday 4 March)
- Madrid, Spain (Monday 25 April)
- London, UK (Thursday, 12 May)
- Doha, Qatar (Monday, 30 May)
- Berlin, Germany (Friday, 1 July)
Locations and dates for the second half of the year will be announced at a later stage.
