The GEN Summit in short
The GEN summit is a must-attend event for the media industry. This year’s edition will focus on the rise of platform-driven news. Since 2011, the Global Editors Network gathers more than 600 editors-in-chief and media innovators to discuss the latest innovations in newsrooms. Participants of more than 60 countries have the opportunity to meet technology and digital suppliers for media and assist to presentations and bootcamps on the latest journalism trends. The GEN summit is also well-known for the Data Journalism Awards that recognise outstanding work in the field of data-driven journalism worldwide. This year, 63 projects have been shortlisted out of 471 submissions. The winners will be announced at the DJA Ceremony on Thursday evening the 16th of June.
The GEN summit has definitely become the place to know what is shaping the media industry and follow the latest trends! We look forward to meeting you at the impressive Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften!
