Innovating for the future of Europe’s media

The last few years have been turbulent for the media, which now finds itself in need of both new ways to navigate an increasingly fraught digital space and more diverse sources of funding with which to do so. 

Following the submission of 48 applications by 90 media organisations, 14 projects were selected last month as the winners of the third round of the Stars4Media NEWS programme, which provides financial support and specialist coaching for companies working on innovative solutions to the problems currently faced by the sector.

Divided between groups working towards either newsroom or business transformation, the programme officially launches this week, with winners gathering for a kick-off event.

This year’s cohort spans 20 countries and also includes five projects linguistically or geographically linked to Eastern Europe, staffed by Ukrainian, Belarusian or Russian-speaking participants, with the aim of working towards better guarding the sector against state interference and information manipulation.
