The News Impact Summit Vienna

21 October - 21 October 2014, Vienna, Austria (News Impact Summit)


The News Impact Summit is a new type of media innovation event, 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. Organised by the European Journalism Centre (EJC) and Google, in partnership with Der Standard, fjum, and Hack/Hackers Vienna, this one-day event will feature high-level journalism professionals as speakers, varying from major broadcast journalists to Austrian print managers, from social media news editors to data journalism practitioners.

Sign up now for this free event which is open to all journalists, editors, newsroom managers, journalism trainers and
J-school students. (Lunch and drinks will be offered free of charge. Limited seats available.)

At the summit in Vienna, the spotlight will be on the role of data and user generated content (UGC) in the news production process, and on how these shape the ways in which we tell stories. Big data and social networking platforms hold the potential for positively affecting how we cover breaking news, investigate complex issues, and interact with citizens in an open environment. Yet, the challenge is how we should effectively and efficiently apply these new techniques and available tools in our day-to-day work.

The event will feature exclusive and inspiring sessions with David Schraven, Head of Investigation at Correct!v; Bella Hurrell, Deputy Editor of Visual Journalism at the BBC; Aine Kerr, Managing Editor at Storyful; Nicholas Whitaker for the Google For Media team, and many more.
