Data-Driven Innovation Hub for theMedia Value Chain
The public opinion is increasingly formed
online, based on content optimised
for clicks rather than a balanced

address these challenges, to find unconventional
ways to engage citizens
with quality journalism as well as to
increase media and data-literacy.
MediaFutures will support startups
and artists with up to 80.000€ equity
free funding, mentoring and training.
The final aim is the creation of data
driven products, services and digital
artworks and experiences that will reshape
the media value chain through
innovative, inclusive and participatory
applications of data and user-generated

impact of your proposed project
are more important.
Applications within media that
have a high social impact e.g.
