ideas Zone aims at sharing and exchanging information, experience, know-how and best practices with the participants. More specifically, it includes various thematic cycles annually and numerous workshops and events, covering relevant aspects of journalism from a theoretical and practical point of view.
About the ideas zone
A highly respected and well-known member of the local or global academic and professional community or a top-notch institution, certified in the specific subject, leads every thematic cycle. Professors and highly respected professionals from around the world share their experiences and also exchange ideas and opinions with the participants.
Each workshop will be announced in advance on our website, including all the useful information for the participants, as well as the application form if this is a prerequisite.
The selection is based on quantitative and qualitative criteria, which may vary per workshop and will be described in detail in each individual announcement.
