Are you a young media professional eager to gain skills, boost your career, test your ideas, and expand your network? Are you a publisher or an editor whose media needs innovation backed by business, to develop future management, and to grow its network with top media leaders in Europe?
Stars4Media is an exchange and training programme for young media professionals (“rising stars”) between cooperating media organisations, to accelerate media innovation and cross-border coverage in Europe. Stars4Media will encourage innovation through skill-building activities between paired media organisations to test ideas, produce contents and develop initiatives around 4 strategic themes.
In particular, Stars4Media will encourage innovation through skill-building activities between “like-minded” media outlets. This project will deepen key skills, such as: use of social media, video pitch, reporting techniques, online advertising, etc.
The project has three objectives:
- Promote media innovation, along three axes: technological, marketing/business, and quality content production, with the aim to unleash new business models.
- Build new media partnerships and mobility across Europe, exchanging not only future leaders, but also sharing content, product ideas and new technological tools.
- Foster an environment conducive to quality journalism and media pluralism, supporting democracy versus online disinformation.
