How are European public service media organisations dealing with the challenges and opportunities that come with the rise of digital media? Are they instituting organisational change and facilitating innovation? How are they responding to the rise of mobile media, and the growing importance of platforms like Facebook and YouTube?Reviewing online public service news delivery across six countries – the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Finland, and Poland – our report identifies factors that help public service media organisations like the BBC and YLE reach large audience with news online. Dr Annika Sehl (lead author) and Rasmus Kleis Nielsen (RISJ Research Director) will introduce the report. Then, join an expert panel including representatives from the BBC and RAI, for a high level discussion. Followed by a drinks reception. Places are free, but must be reserved.
