Workshop on data journalism open [Europe]

June 11, 2014

This year’s M100 Young European Journalists Workshop (M100 YEJ), which takes place at part of the M100 Sanssouci Colloquium for the tenth time, will consider the theme of ‘Data-driven Journalism’ (DDJ). In cooperation with the Potsdam University of Applied Sciences and the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam, the participants will be taught about the basic applications and technologies of data-driven journalism.

The M100 Young European Journalists Workshop aims to introduce selected participants to both sides of dealing with data: both the technical principles as well as the professional, responsible use of data and its benefits, but also the risks faced every day as a journalist. Not least, participation in the M100 Sanssouci Colloquium, which will be attended by 50 to 60 senior editors, academics, bloggers, politicians and representatives of major Internet companies from Europe and the USA on 12 September 2014. The subject of ‘Media Freedom in the Era of Big Data’ will be discussed in two sessions, giving the participants a deeper insight and knowledge of this subject.
