Innovation and Journalism – The Role of Platforms

Business & Innovation
re:publica 2016

Short thesis: 

Google’s efforts to partner with news publishers in Europe to support high quality journalism through technology and innovation.


The tools available to journalists today, to access information, to gather and create content and disseminate it to a global audience, represent extraordinary advances compared with what was available just a few years ago. And the quality and ambition of news journalism seems to grow year after year.

Over the last year we have built on that with the Digital News Initiative – a collaboration between Google and news publishers across Europe. We are committed to ongoing discussion between the tech and news sectors. To promote innovation in digital journalism. And play our part in building a more sustainable news ecosystem.


Presented by Google.
