INA has teamed up with a consortium of European partners, from the audiovisual, media and higher education sectors, to create a training programme adapted to current challenges and technological developments in journalism. The MediaNumeric project, initiated in January 2021 for a period of 3 years, is funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.
The MediaNumeric Project
The MediaNumeric project aims at producing educational resources and creating a training programme adapted to current evolutions and professional practices of the news media industry.
Addressed to European students in journalism & communication studies, it will bring them the necessary theoretical knowledge and skills, in order to prepare this new generation of journalists to explore and use big data, and tell enriched multimedia stories.
Thus, MediaNumeric’s objective is to contribute to the building of a creative, innovative, reliable and high-quality European media sector, economically sustainable and technologically advanced, better able to fight against misinformation. To do this, it will also bring together European media and digital professionals, in order to provide them with a framework for discussion and analysis of practices and developments in the media landscape.
A European partnership
MediaNumeric is funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union. This initiative is led by a consortium of European partners associating Higher education institutions to audiovisual, media and digital players : The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision (Netherlands), Université en Sciences Appliquées InHolland (Netherlands), FINA National Film Archive - Audiovisual Institut (Poland), SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities (Poland), AFP - Agence France Presse (France), INA - Institut national de l'audiovisuel (France ), Storytek (Estonia) et EUscreen Foundation (Netherlands).
