Lars Nyre and Leif Ove Larsen: Introducing Bergen Journalism Lab
september 10, 2014. Tid: 13:15 - 14:00
Bergen Journalism Lab invites you to the first in a «never-ending» series of workshops about innovation and prototype development in journalism.Lars Nyre and Leif Ove Larsen present the plans.
The goal is to strengthen the quality of journalism by generating and disseminating knowledge. The Infomedia department has a strong starting position when it concerns research on ICTs and journalism. It is desirable to establish a research initiative in this area, and connect to Media City Bergen and funding bodies like the Norwegian Research Council, Innovasjon Norge, etc.
We ask how such an initiative should be organized, and what kind of objectives and values should characterise the research conducted in such a lab environment.
