INJECT Norway Seminar at Media City Bergen

25 August 2017 - Norwegian Team at Media City Bergen, NO

The Norwegian INJECT team is organising a seminar at the newly opened Media City Bergen on Friday 25 August to further the development of the INJECT Norway.

In addition to a demonstration of the INJECT tool, Aleksander Tonheim (University of Bergen) will present the initial results on how INJECT was used this summer in local newsrooms in Norway and Professor Lars Nyre (University of Bergen) will talk about finding good news angles with information support from an academic perspective.

Associate professor Ana Laws from Volda University College will discuss infographics for local newspapers as a spin-off from INJECT. Volda University College has recently joined the INJECT consortium. They are conducting research on visualisations and how they are used in local and regional newspapers in Norway.

Business development director Joao Ribeiro (M’Labs) will cover some of the possibilities for INJECT to become a sustainable player in the Norwegian journalism field. Project Leader Neil Maiden (City, University of London) will also join the seminar via Skype to discuss the work on INJECT so far. He will focus on preparing the Norwegian ecosystem for the 2018 evaluation.
