RUJ-EU-EFJ Conference: Threats and opportunities for regional media in digital age
December 15, 2016 @ 9:00 am - December 16, 2016 @ 4:30 pm
The EU Delegation to the Russian Federation, in association with the Russian Union of Journalists and the European Federation of Journalists is organising the fourth and final in a series of meetings of EU and Russian journalists in 2016. The two-day event in Moscow (14-16 December) will be devoted to discussions on the future of regional press and the challenges faced by regional and local media in digital age and in changing geopolitical climate.
EU journalists and their Russian colleagues will share their expertise and experience in transforming traditional newspapers into online and multi-media operations, and in developing new business models for the converged media. The second day will be a festival of regional media, where editors and journalists from all over Russia will showcase their outputs for appreciation and critique with the view to developing future collaborative projects. The Moscow meeting follows earlier similar events that took place in London, St Petersburg and Brussels earlier this year.
